Hog of the Hedge

Hog of the Hedge

Where do you wander, dear hog of the hedge?
"I'm gathering flowers for my window ledge".
Does anyone hear the patter of his feet, 
scurrying along the hedgerow street?
Oh, how he decorates! Look at his style,
Flowers of every colour to make us smile.

Storytime in Daffodil Woods

Here is personal commission I recently painted for a friend to mark the arrival of a new baby girl.
My friend wanted a spring-like feel to the illustration with lots of woodland animals in a woodland setting. The front cover on the book was left blank until the arrival of the baby, it was then that I added the baby's name 'Harriet Grace'.

More New Artwork!

Hi everyone! Below are more new pieces of recent artwork. I plan to open an Etsy shop very soon, and these will be available to buy as prints!
'The Sea Monster'

'The Craft Club'

'Flowers in the Fog'

'Collecting Flowers'
'The Dream Trees'
'Pretty Duckling'

'Big Friendly Flowers'
'Too Sweet to Eat'
The above two illustrations stem from an idea I've had in my head forever! I plan to re-write the story line for it soon. It features a little girl called Sarah, that wants to make her world a sweeter place, such as picking beautiful flowers from a garden to place in her vase, or a packet of irresistible candy from a sweet shop that look so tempting. But those things do not wish to be picked or eaten.....So what will she do? This is where I am at the moment with the story. The plot thickens!


Below are some delicate watercolours. I made a small time lapse video of 'Bugs in Love' which you can see on my Instagram page.
