About Me

Elaine Warwick Simpson: that’s me.

Elaine is me, Warwick was my Mum’s surname; Simpson was my Dad’s surname.

I could use my husband’s name too – Bailey – but it seems a bit greedy: three’s enough for anyone I think.

I have almost always drawn and painted, but sometimes there are fallow periods and right now for about two years I have done nothing.

And I’m missing it.

So I’m looking at all the artwork I have done in the past.

Doing drawing exercises to familiarise myself again with the materials and remind myself how to see.

Reading about and looking at the art of others.

And now I’m blogging about it all.

Hopefully some spark will light a flame.
