Novelty Picture Books!

Hi! Since the end of 2020 and up to spring 2021, I have been as busy as a bee working on four novelty picture books for Long Ken publishers in China. The books are yet to be published, so please watch this space where I can post more as soon as they are! But for now, here is a little preview of one of the pages from the books. This page is from 'Land of Giants'. 

All four books will have novelty features such as lift the flap, a magnifying glass attached to the book, gate fold pages, a miniature book which can be taken out of a tray in the side of the book, sliding features and glitter!

'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.

Hiding

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!
