'Tea Under the Willow Tree'

A sweet illustration in watercolour which I have just completed. I was inspired to create this piece by observing the beautiful wildlife at my local park which I visit regularly. All the animals have their own cute and quirky personalities!

Pumpkin and Butternut

These two sweet cats are called Pumpkin and Butternut. I was recently commissioned by their owner to capture them together on a canvas. I decided to make them both 'Caticorns'! I have used applique, embroidery, paint, pencil crayon and embellishments.

'Visiting friends with Gifts'

Here is a watercolour illustration which I have just completed. This is my entry to the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust Postcard competition.

This little tabby cat is hiding behind the flowers ready to pounce! A new embroidery coming soon to my Etsy shop!

Let Kindness Rain Down

Even on your darkest days, let kindness and light rain down always. Be kind to one another.
This is available as a giclee print in my Etsy shop.

Green jug with Lisianthus

I made an acrylic painting of some beautiful Lisianthus I recieved for my birthday from my mum.

Flower Kittens!

Here is a new embroidery of two little bohemian kittens dancing possibly at a festival? Aren't they adorable with their hippy skirts?! 😻
I also made a watercolour painting!

Storytime in Bulrush Bower

It has been a lovely February with some crazy mild temperatures for the UK! Here is a cosy illustration which I have painted in gouache. Mr toad is reading a story to his friends on a Sunday evening. It is an event they all look forward to. This illustration is also available to purchase as a giclee print in my Etsy shop here.
