Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Your sketches bring me pleasure.

You've captured one of my favourite pastimes, in fact, it has such joy it could be a full-time: watching people, wondering about their lives. You've captured them with your drawings; they can stay with us even as they travel. Thank you.

PS. Beth, my post today links to you and, I hope, introduces readers to your work.

Great portraits!

I really like these sketches. It's not easy to capture people so well. You have a gift for it.

I especially like the free-flowing movement and colour of the top image and also the woman in green at her laptop.
