Happy Halloween

I hope you all have a fun evening...

Little sea boy

Sorry about the poor quality shot - but I am on the road...

Little people

I found a little woman climbing my notebook. She did not notice me thank goodness so I got a good shot.

Uh oh

Had some fun with the letter 'O'...


When my second was born I remember how sad Matilda became.. this drawing was reflecting her sadness at being alone when I was not able to come and play. Makes my heart break thinking about it.

Lingerie cards

Some time ago I designed a range of greeting cards which were a little risqué - but fun too. I adore 1950's style pants with all the lace, ribbons and sexiness that go with them.

Eyes glasses

I was having some fun with a character on a train and what sort of expressions she might have when talking to a friend.

Pretty collage

I used a mixture of old paper and photographs with ink and card to create these images. These are zoom-ins of the main image.

Love note...

I made a little card for my hubby! I used old magazines and cut out the letters which I then put on this fabulous deep red card I bought at a local art shop.
He seemed to like it..

The quote is missing a ? whoooops

My companion while I work

I cannot get enough of Ruby Ruth Dolls. This doll is called 'Ruby'. Matilda and Georgia adore her. Ruby asked me to paint her portrait - which I obliged. The least I could do as she such a good friend.

I am designing a logo for my business cards and website...


I keep seeing wonderful people on the street, I wish I had the time to draw them there and then. Maybe I should ask if I could take a photograph - but it might sound really creepy... This is a lady who had a very cool bob.

Harold final illustration

Here is one of the final illustrations for my book 'Harold'. I do love Harold an awful lot...

Today's outlook

Monday is a day with clouds, raspberries, tortoises and umbrellas. Looking forward to it.

Georgia's family

My two year old Georgia did her own sketch of her family. I'm the one far right. I think she takes after her Mummy! he he. Very proud.

A self portrait

Ok so it does not look much like me except for the hair and glasses... but it is kind of funny!

Scene setting

Here is an illustration for a scene in my book. I love doors - I could draw them forever! I also had fun choosing the wallpaper. You know I think I create a virtual home for myself in my drawings.. That could be an idea for another project!

Peek a BOO!

Naughty bear...

Having a Whale of a time

Here is a sketch for a character I am having lots of fun with. A W.O.P. - work in progress...

Experimenting with colours

I really feel colour has to be experimented with and explored. It is too easy to take paint and immediately use it. When I learned to paint at aged 16 (outside school), my tutor told me you can get every colour you want from blue, red and yellow. I was never allowed to use black!

Bear Sketch/Scratch?!

This is a notebook sketch I did recently. I was trying to get the proportions right which looked easier than I thought!
