Leap Frog

I was just looking at some old designs which have found homes and found this one... i think frogs are so cute and funny. This one found a home as textiles and I'm sure will look great.

Cosmo collection

I was just cleaning up some old files and found these images of a collection I did a while ago for Saturday Knight. I thought it was fun and love seeing what companies do with my work. I still get excited now!

Its been a while...

I haven't blogged for ages, time flies when you're having fun looking after a new baby, well a 7 month old one. The days are so busy I end up working after little ones gone to bed (which isn't ideal as I'm now worn out!) Anyway still busy with projects and wanted to share some winter florals.

Surtex is underway now and I'm busy working on new art for the next show Printsource. This design sold at the last Printsource show. I think some tropical allovers would be fun.

Little bunnies

Since having George, children's art is at the top of my list. This was inspired by his new rabbit teddy!

Surtex is just round the corner and as well as looking after a new baby, I'm busy in-between trying to sort out new work for Surtex. Roy and Jane Evans Designs will be showing my work again this year. If you're going to the show please call by their Booth 113.

Welcome to the world George..

I have been very busy at the the moment and taking time out to look after my new son George. My first one! He was born March 22nd and I'm slowly getting used to it all! What a whirlwind of washing, feeding and nappy changing.... and a few odd hours of designing for therapy between feeds!

Heres a little Easter Chick design for him and I suppose now my work will feature a lot of baby art seeing as I have such good research.

So heres to a happy future for you George.

Tweet tweet

I love creating bird artwork. I did these awhile back for a company so they have a nice home to go to!
It reminds me of Spring and being woken up early with the sound of birdsong filling the bedroom.... could do with a lie in!

Sail away...

Nautical and coastal designs have been the theme for this week...I love the coast and can't wait for my summer holiday which is usually somewhere in Cornwall checking out all the fishing boats.

I woke up to 4 inches of the white stuff this morning....I do love it whilst it lasts and looks all fluffy. This artwork is an old favourite and reminds me of cold snowy days...It was sold to Papermagic as a card and was out this year along with a few of his friends.

I love ponies...

This design sold recently at Printsource but it brought me right back to my childhood and all those long hot days out riding on my pony. All the little details came flooding back to grooming and rugging up and getting ready for a show. Seems like a lifetime ago, all that hard work and effort but it was worth it. Not so sure I'd have the time now somehow!

It's so cold....

It's been so cold here today. I feel like a snowman! My studio is at the top of the house, with the idea that heat rises but not today!Anyway, I still feel like doing Christmas designs with all this chilly weather.
