BLOOM 8th - 14th May

This lovely image is the poster for an upcoming exhibition I'm involved in this May entitled BLOOM. The show is taking place at the beautiful Gardens Gallery in Cheltenham, where I have previously exhibited with the lovely GradGallery collective.

The exhibition will showcase the work of five creatives including myself, Sophia Bloxham, Liz Clayton, Emma Ridgway and Katie Thomas (who designed this fabulous poster!). Please click on their names to visit their websites/blogs to check out their work. There will be a variety of illustration and design on show and, as always, there will be lots of lovely prints, originals, postcards and greetings cards for sale!

Hope you can make it along to the exhibition, please pop in and say hello if you are in the area!

More dogs in jumpers..!

Hey everyone! Just a couple more quick illustrations of some pups sporting some very fetching jumpers. I'm trying to get some new work done at the moment ready for an exhibition I have coming up next month. The show is taking place at the Gardens Gallery in Cheltenham and will have work by me and a few other very talented ladies! I'll post all the details in the next week or so if you are interested.

Dogs In Knitwear

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday! Just a bit of fun with these two illustrations, if you follow me on Twitter you may have already seen a glimpse of them! They were inspired by an old knitting pattern for doggy jumpers my Gran found in a charity shop. There are three more I've still got to paint and I'll post a pic of the knitting pattern with the rest of them because it's so funny! Hope you like them. You can follow me on Twitter here...

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to everyone! Hope you are all having a lovely, relaxing weekend and enjoying your chocolate eggs!

I'm afraid I don't have an Easter illustration to share with you, but instead here is a little character study I've been working on recently. One of my NY resolutions this year was to become more confident with drawing and painting children/people characters and this is my first attempt. I want to move on to doing characters more suited to picture books, but I figure this is a good start!

Please follow the link to take a look at my painting process...
