Cricket


A collection of all my original cricket drawings and limited edition prints.
When I was in my 20's I backpacked around Australia.  At the time England Cricket were visiting playing an Ashes series.  My wanderings had taken me to Adelaide and everywhere I went I was asked if I was there for the cricket, I wasn't but eventually curiosity got the better of me.   England were due to play a test match there so I bought a 5 day ticket (it was cheap at the time) and I turned up for the match not really knowing anything about cricket.   Luckily for me I sat down on the grass verge to watch next to an old man and his grown up son.  During the course of that first day they both kindly and patiently  explained the laws of cricket.  By the end of that first day I was hooked.  Over the next few days I sang and danced with the Barmy Army and got swept along with a pitch invasion at the end when England won.  
Since then all my children have played cricket and my husband has played cricket all  his life.  It is no surprise that years later when I began to draw it is cricket that I first started sketching.  I hope through my drawings I can share with you the moments that I love about cricket....
