Illustration for Levi

I recently did an illustration for my cousin's lovely little boy Levi. The London scene is something a bit different for me, but it was really fun to paint!

Swan Lake Illustrations

Last November I worked with the U.S. Educational publisher Seed Learning to illustrate a picture book version of Swan Lake for early readers. Last week I received an exciting parcel in the post with two copies of the book all the way from Korea! It was a really fun project to work on and made me face my fear of illustrating human characters! 

Here are a couple of spreads from the book...

Cheltenham Open Studios 2015

My work displayed at deepspaceworks for COS15.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you will have seen that I recently took part in Cheltenham Open Studios 2015, a biyearly event, where nearly 200 artists across Cheltenham open up their homes and studios to the public.

My studio space at deepspaceworks Art Centre in Cheltenham is home to 15 other artists and creatives and, alongside the studios being opened up to the public, we had an exciting and diverse exhibition running alongside it including work from studio members and associates.

Cirencester Hare Festival 2015

Meet Patience the hare!

As part of the Cirencester Hare Festival 2015 I was asked to decorate a small hare this year! The hare is one of 50 as part of the Small Hare Passport Trail. The hares can be found all over Cirencester and this little one is located at Cirencester Hospital. There are 6 small hares to see up at the hospital; each one decorated by a different department. I decorated the admininstration team's hare.

Please check out some more photos after the jump...

Happy 2015!

A bit late, but I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

I was a very busy bee at the end of 2014 working on a couple of exciting commissions, which I can hopefully share soon. In the meantime, here is a christmas illustration I did for my cousin's baby boy who lives over in New York!
