New Prints in my Etsy Shop


In case you haven’t already seen them, I have 2 new giclee art prints available right now in my Etsy shop. The first is this red and white heart illustration on beautiful Somerset Enhanced Velvet textured paper. It’s also available as a greeting card, which would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.


The other print is of my very popular Bunny illustration. This one is also available as a greeting card, which I think would be great for Easter but both cards are blank inside so you can use them for any occasion you choose.

Both prints and the greeting cards are limited in number so don’t miss out – head over to my shop and place your order ready for this week’s post office run!



Portfolio Building and New Items in the Shop


At the beginning of this month my friend Marissa and her friend Heather announced that they were going to be sharing drawing prompts each week and anyone was welcome to join in. Each month has a theme – January’s theme is ‘hygge’ – and each week there are 3 prompts within that theme. So I’m joining in with this as a way to build up my portfolio and perhaps create some new work to share with you in my Etsy shop.

This week I’ve only managed to finish one of my illustrations so far but no doubt some weeks will be like that. This coffee illustration is from week one of the challenge and this, along with some of the others that I’ve made will be in my online portfolio for you to browse very soon.


In other news, I’m continuing to add some more products to my Etsy shop. So along with the new notebooks, this Sunshine original artwork is currently available for purchase. It’s A5 and painted in acrylic paints with Pigma Graphic pen for the outline. And there’s an A5 turquoise vine original illustration available to purchase as well.

I’m also offering some of my greeting cards as bundles, or sets, which save you some money. I’ve grouped together a few cards on the same ‘theme’ and given you a discount for buying them together.

There’ll be some more new stuff in my Etsy shop next week and of course, I’ve got all my other individual cards, prints and original work too. Do some shopping to brighten up this cold, grey January!

New Notebooks in my Shop!


My Etsy shop is now open again and I’m excited to let you know that there are 2 brand new notebooks available for purchase, including this one featuring my watermelon pattern. Grab one (or both) now in my Etsy shop! While you’re there you might want to pick up some greetings cards, which currently have 30% off the usual price. These low prices are not permanent so if you’ve had your eye on any of the cards, make sure you get them now, because once these designs are sold they are gone forever.



Starting a Lettering Project

Floral Letter A

This week I decided to start a new daily project. Lately I’ve been using the patterns I made earlier in the year to create one-off original watercolour artwork that I’m selling in my shop, and I’ve also made some technical repeat patterns from some of them.

Building on that I’ve decided to work on my hand lettering and over the next 24 days (I started yesterday and have already done today’s) I plan on creating a patterned letter in my sketchbook each day. My idea is to work through the alphabet and create a new design each day. No doubt some will be more complex and others quite simple. That is as far as my plan goes at the moment so I’m just going to see how things develop over the next few weeks.

Have you got any creative projects on the go at the moment?


Oh, and if you were thinking of ordering from my Etsy shop in time for Christmas, these are my final posting dates, so if you’re in Africa or the Middle East you need to get your order in today (Wednesday 30th November)! I’ll be closing the doors to my shop on Friday 16th December and re-opening in early January so if you want something before then, don’t miss your chance – especially if it’s a one-off rather than a print or card!


New Prints and Original Art


This week I have some more new items in my shop to tell you about. The first is this blue original watercolour illustration of fish, which is based on a similar painting I did in my sketchbook earlier this year. This is a one-off and, unlike my other original pieces I probably won’t be making prints of this one because my scanner did weird things with the colours.


The second item now available for purchase is an A5 giclée, archival quality print of the watercolour socks illustration I recently painted in my sketchbook. For the moment I only have 10 of these available and I’m not sure yet whether I’ll be having any more printed, so don’t miss out!
