Sweet Paul Magazine is a very stylish bunch of pages, sold in the USA. So I was very pleased indeed to find my reindeer pillowcase had found its way into the Christmas edition!

I got to do a lovely commission earlier in the year, for a fun-filled couple, for their wedding invitations.

A Family Reunited

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

All of my commissions are special, but doing this one gave me a lump in my throat…

Marking a year since her beloved father passed away. Then 3 days later discovering she has a sister (and niece and nephew) in Poland… and learning of life stories that unfurled from there.

A close bond and friendship has grown between her and her sister over the past year. This painting a gift for when they recently met for the first time, in Poland.

There was a lot riding on this one. Very special indeed.

And I was genuinely touched to receive the beautiful photo of the moment the painting was received as a gift.

New Designs for Modern Family Cards

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

My new designs for Modern Family Cards have just launched! So excited! The best thing about these is that the sayings I get to illustrate are made up by my clients son!

Modern Family Cards now have an Etsy shop, so you can buy these cards, and others there.

Stuffed is an American magazine dedicated entirely to handmade softies. My Whale stuffie had a long way to travel, but made the most of his stay, getting a whole page to himself!
