Winter and Summer

Hi there!
Here's a little illustration to mark the first day of Winter.
And a little illustration to warm your heart with a reminder that Summer will soon be on its way.


 
 
 
Here are some new embroidery hoops I have recently made.

Christmas is coming!

Its a busy time of year for all of us....especially for cats!
 
 
Three little Watercolours by moi.

Cat and easel
'I must finish this Christmas painting'
Cat and violin
'I will keep practicing my song for Christmas'

Cat Knitting
'This scarf will keep the children warm'


Wood Paintings

Here are some more new pieces I have been working on. I have been painting onto a wood surface. I think they look lovely! The wood shows the paint work beautifully.
The painting on the large piece of wood is from my painting of 'Jacqueline's Tea Party'. The small piece of wood shows a painting of 'Little Red Riding Hood'.




Christmas Decorations

Hi! I have been busy working on something new and different!
I have painted illustrations onto wooden hearts and children's vintage building blocks.
All have a 'wlidlife' theme with owls, foxes, toadstools, hedgehogs, robins and deer. They would look beautiful hanging from a Christmas tree!

Flower Drawings


I love all flowers and wanted to make some simple, detailed pencil sketches of various types.
I used a 6B and a H pencil.


Grimm's Fairytale Embroideries

I have been busy sewing my artwork into embroideries. Each embroidery is displayed in a small hoop which can hang on the wall. I have used an ink stamp for the text as before.
