Thank you, Sophie, for inviting me to be your guest. That is quite an honor as are your kind words about my drawings. It was about three years ago when I first started drawing some of the scenes from the 1995 Pride & Prejudice miniseries. Until that time I had not drawn many people so this was a new and exciting direction for me. Following is the account of how my drawing career began.
My artistic interpretations are a tribute to Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice, the 1995 miniseries, the 2005 movie and the actors. Although the miniseries is my favorite, there are many things I like about the movie too. I’m always glad to know which drawings are favorites of others and why. I’m glad that you shared some of yours with me.
Thank you again to Janet for this most interesting post. Good luck with any future book covers and of course new drawings in the future! I am sure I will be purchasing something else before too long!
I really recommend having a look around her website, for her drawing really are wonderful and unbelievably life-like - I wish I could draw like that! I have my calendar pinned up next to my bed, and so consequently I have Darcy watching over me as I sleep - what could be more perfect?
Your affectionate friend,
