I’m Sarah, a British artist living in sunny Los Angeles. I started painting just an hour a day when my daughter would nap as a means to keep myself creative. 4 years later, what started as a hobby has become a passion and a career. You can find more of my work on Instagram @Its_Art_Oclock. My motto is “It’s always Art Oclock somewhere, so take 5 mins or an hour of your day to do something arty”. I recently discovered I had an interest in cooking too and have decided to illustrate my favorite recipes to create a keepsake for my daughter. I plan to use both watercolors as well as digital art, and will be uploading them to “They draw and Cook” when they fit the theme.

Home is where the Beans on Toast is! by Sarah Jean Bryson

Los Angeles , California, US


I grew up in England and moved to the USA 12 years ago, one of the things I miss the most is this simple British staple of Heinz baked beans on toast. My mum would make it for me with toasted thick white bread, a generous spread of rich butter and smothered in Heinz hot baked beans, them she would grate sharp cheddar cheese on top and a little black pepper. Comfort food at its best. No matter where in the World I travel, it always feels like I’m home when I make this simple warming dish. It should be noted, they don’t sell Heinz brand baked beans in stores in the USA, so my friends know to bring me a can from the UK when they visit!
