I’m sorry it’s been a while since blogging. I can’t quite believe how fast the time has gone this year! I’ve been very busy on the design side of my business (which is great), but unfortunately I can’t seem to switch my mind from design to art as easy as I’d like…
I’d love to sit down and get doodling, I’ve got lots of ideas swimming around. Now the dark nights are drawing in, it’ll be a perfect opportunity to get the mulled wine on and sit in front of the fire – electric sadly but still pretty 🙂 surrounded by my arty bits and bobs 🙂
I just wanted to share with you some of the new(ish) vintage ladies I’ve been drawing with my Pentel Brush Pen. Vintage ladies from the 1920/30/40/50s inspire me 🙂 I’ve filled nearly two A6 sketchbooks with basic line drawings of these ladies. I thought developing them further would be a challenge…
Then I decided to add a bit of gold in the mix…
I had a go at drawing some powerful ladies from history…
Until next time! (hopefully I won’t leave it as long this time 🙂 )

I don’t know about you but I love receiving letters in the post – and cards! Makes a change from bills all the time. I felt inspired to create a set of ‘snail mail’ products. It’s lovely to sit down and write to your family and friends. In an age of technology I think is important to keep the art of letter writing alive.
Using my right hand (I’m a lefty) I used Indian ink and a dip pen to illustrate a beautiful old typewriter.
I’ve made a set of 3 greetings cards…
And a letter writing set 🙂
They’re available to buy in afflecks at SWALK creative and they’ll soon be on my etsy shop 😉
Hope you like them!

I was recently asked by my art friend Jo Orme, if I could donate some artwork to help raise money for a charity event she’s taking part in next year. Along with a couple of her friends, Jo will be cycling from London to Amsterdam via Bruges in June 2016!
In four days they will have cycled a whopping 360 mile approx 🙂 Jo is raising money for MacMillan, and her friends are supporting Mind and Blood Pressure UK.
One of the fundraising events they have organised, is for a charity Art Auction at Rosie’s Tea Room in Hayfield. It will run for 6 weeks from 30th November. 100% of the monies raised will go to their charities. Check out their facebook page!
Here are the two pieces I’ve donated…
Good luck ladies 🙂
It’s been a long wait but this Friday is Drink & Draw 🙂 Can’t wait for the next installment of #TheRedCase.
I’m getting in the mood… 🙂

I’d heard about the Vintage Emporium in Pear Mill through a friend. Today was the first time I went to visit… I’m in love! What can I say? 🙂 beautiful vintage clothes, shoes, furniture, cups and much, much more! … I could have spent hours in there 🙂
I thought it would be a good idea to take a few pictures as I walked round exploring.
Tonight sat in the living room surrounded by my paints and pens, I’ve started to draw some of the things I saw… Here’s what I’ve painted so far…
