He is finally here, my Curious Otter Pin Badge!
I have wanted to get this little chap made into a lovely metal pin badge for a while now, and what better time than before Christmas! Perfect as a stocking filler gift, or for yourself, this metal pin has a lovely quality to it and will keep you company on these cold wintery days.
He is available on my website, Not on The Highstreet shop and Etsy! He will also be making his debut at Renegade Craft Fair on 9th and 10th December at the Old Truman Brewery!
It is International Cat Day and I couldn’t let the day pass without showing you some of my favourite Cat based goodies.
The kitty cat in the frame is an original drawing available to buy on my Etsy shop. I went cat drawing crazy a little while ago when all I wanted to draw was cats so I have collection of original drawings all on A5 Fabriano paper of my favourite kitties.
My favourite product is my Cat Tote Bag, my day was totally made last week when a lovely lady asked where my bag was from and it was this one! It the most lovely feeling when someone likes or compliments your work. The tote bag is a really useful size and the handles are a great length for putting over your shoulder and you really can fit quite a lot in it!
Happy International Cat Day!
Flow is such a beautiful magazine full of interesting and insightful articales from illustrators and artists, so I was so happy to have my Curious Otter Tote Bag featured in their Dutch issue. How gorgeous is the cover!
I love blue sky, I definitely feel so much happier when the sun is shining. Here are a few pictures from recent months, I haven’t updated this blog nearly enough.
The top picture is from an air show! The middle is a lovely rose covered wall in Hampton Court, one of my favourite places to be when the sun shining and bottom picture is of my Curious Otter tote bag hanging on a ivy covered wall. I recently sent some more to the brilliant Cambridge Contemporary Crafts so if you’re in the lovely Cambridge area pop in and have a look!
You can purchase all these goodies and more from the Not On The Highstreet Summer Sale with 20% off!
The summer sales are seriously tempting, the hope of sunshine (yes please) just makes you want to brighten things up with a few new lovely items!
I have a new twitter icon! This isn’t really blog post worthy but I just wanted to show you this lovely picture of my Curious Otter Tote Bag, snuggled in amongst the spring leaves on a warm sunny day.
I love spending time in the countryside, it was so lovely and sunny at the weekend (not so much now I just got drenched in a downpour!) and it was just what I needed, to be amongst the beautiful blossom, feel the warmth of the sun and look out onto fields of green grass.
For my walk amongst the trees I wore my new Curious Otter tote bag, it’s perfect for carrying a small jacket for when things get a little bit chilly, or for holding your jumper when things get a bit hot! It does happen from time to time!
When I have super heavy items to carry around (which may or may not include a few boxes of french fancies…they can get quite heavy you know!) I usually tie the long straps into a knot for easier carrying capabilities.
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine, let’s hope it comes back soon!
All my A5 prints are now £10!
If you are celebrating an anniversary or engagement, a new arrival or a birthday I have the perfect gift for you!
You can order any of my prints from my website, Etsy, Not On The Highstreet and Folksy They will be sent out to you board backed and wrapped to ensure safe delivery!
I now create custom pet illustrations!
I have been commissioned for a few custom pet portraits in the past and love drawing your beautiful furry friends so I thought I would offer a bespoke service on my website and online stores!
When placing an order simply send me a picture of your lovely pet or even favourite animal and I will create a line drawing for you (in the style of the fluffy bunny above) on a5 Fabriano paper for £40!
These would make really nice gifts for anyone with pets (lucky!) or anyone that has a favourite animal they would like captured in an ink drawing!
Available to order from my website, Not On The Highstreet and Etsy shop.
My first post of 2016! I’m not the best at posting on my blog am I, I must make more of an effort to put things on here!
This is my favourite card from my latest range of greetings cards. I have always loved Swans and the fact that they mate for life, so lovely and romantic. I also rarely use colour in my work so this is lot of colour for me and for that reason it’s my favourite.
