Custom Portraits For Xmas - 10% Off

Custom Portraits in Time For Xmas - 

It's that time of year again when I get asked about Custom Portraits in time for Xmas.

Florence here wanted me to say, the sooner the better for orders. 
This gives time for shipping and framing, if it's a gift. And if you order before the 9th November you'll get 10% off as well as some greeting cards x x x

Pass it on. You never know, you might be the recipient of a surprise gift ; ) x

Canine Breed Series - Eyeshadow And Blush

Apologies for not being around as much.
I moved.
I think I'm settled now and finding my feet in my new working area.
I like it!

I've started a series of personal projects.
The first is a series of illustrations of canine breeds.
So far I have an akita, doberman, dalmatian, border collie, dachshund, boston terrier, pug and a japanese chin.

The second is some new florals, I'll post them at a later date.

For now, here's some canines with blusher and eyeshadow. Of course ; ) x x x

October Floral Doodle

hello, sorry for the absence.
I've been busy working on commissions and in the process of packing.

Yep, I'm moving again. Not my choice, but a change is as good as a rest. So they say!
Fitting in a little bit of time for some drawing with no other reason than I wanted to.
Escapism I think they call it.

Well, have a super wednesday, and think of me whilst I'm waist high in boxes ; )

A Chihuahua Named Petunia - Pup Art with Barkbox

Hello and welcome to a new week.

Just wanted to let you know about an event I'm taking part in to help rescue dogs.

I was approached by the lovely people of BarkBox to take part in this benefit event that will be hosted in NYC. Pup Art is "A Show For Fluffy Singles" that will help raise money for our four legged friends in need, by selling artwork.

All I needed to do was download the Barkbuddy app (like Tinder for humans, but matches you with your ideal canine friend) choose a canine I fell for and create a piece of work inspired by them.

I choose Petunia, a cross breed of chihuahua and catahoula leopard dog. She's amazing!

I was immediately drawn to her for her fabulous 'old womans' name. Her blue eyes which stared straight back at me and had a very soulful feel to them, and also she had the best markings!
Sadly I can't adopt her as she resides in Brooklyn, NY.
But you can bet your life if I lived there I'd be making a trip to visit her in person.

The event of all artist work involved will be help at:
Brooklyn Bubble Wrap Studios
58 South 6th Street,
Brooklyn NY.
On the 9th October from 6-8pm.

So if you're lucky enough to live in NY, head down there. Grab yourself some art, help out those gorgeous mutts and get a free glass of wine ; )

R.S.V.P. here to make sure you get a spot.

Palma, Spain, Miro and A Cat!

Hello there,

I've just come back from a lovely holiday in Palma, spain.
I'd never been before and wasn't sure what to expect. All I knew was that it was hot, very hot!

My total highlight of this short break was my trip to the Miro Foundation.
I was never a huge fan before, but the gallery, the exhibition and the setting were a delight.
To see the studios in which Miro worked, his drawings still on the walls, was all very magical.

Here's a few snaps from the visit, as well as a piece inspired by the gardens of the museum.

Terrariums And All Things Plant Based.

It's been a while!
Sorry.

I've been busy working on a project and times been tight.
Loved creating the past week or so though, but time now to catch up.

I entered the Lilla Rogers GTS competition a few weeks back.
The brief was wall art based around terrariums.
Below is my entry and a pattern created in the process.

I didn't reach the final 50, but they are now live and you can see them here.
Go vote for a favourite, theres toms of good stuff there x x x
