Peacock And Lotus Flower 

Peacock And Lotus Flower 

My latest art creation. Created with chalk pastels.




Icad2015 day 3 and the theme was – draw a map.

I wrote an acrostic haiku  poem – Map 


Map my destiny

And guide me to the future

Paths that I must walk

I then created my image for the theme based around my poem.

I thought Tarot cards are mapped out to predict a destiny.

So I designed a Wheel Of Fortune tarot card.

I bordered the sides of the image with DNA sequencing strands as our futures are all mapped out and predestined in our DNA 

This challenge inspired me to combine poetry, science and mysticism in a creative way.




Come on roll up ladies and gentlemen

And be amazed by life’s miscreations.

Rue in wonder of abnormalities

Natures oddities. Be bewildered by

Imperfections and the truly grotesque

Variety of malformation in

An astounding display of the deformed.

Let your eyes linger on beautiful freaks.

I wrote this poem and created my picture for icad2015 day 2 – the theme being carnival. I drew my image on the back of a postcard and used black art pens and marker pens from Poundland to create it. On the front of the postcard where the address would go I am printing off and then glueing my pen onto it.
