Hi everyone, I am so excited because I picked up another book of my children’s book collection today. I am planning to sell it at my sons school Christmas fair on the 27th of November.
It took a little time to create using new brushes on the procreate app. But I love it. It was an old story I wrote years ago. My kids love it. It would also make a great Christmas gift. A cute 6 X 6 inch size that fits into most bags of pressies.
Morning folks, hope you are doing well, if not I am thinking if you. I have been flowing in and out of different self-led and self imposed projects. I think of a theme I have wanted to do for ages, and then do a series or collection to kick it out of my system. Not through loathing but to get a very much needed fix on cuteness of that particular kind. One of these much needed fixes have been cats.
The process video is here: preening cat Video
This kitty is called the ‘preening Cat’. It is one of my favourite so far from my cat series. I have noticed that some subjects within my work have been set aside to some extent in my mind, and I have come to realise that probably subconsciously I have not felt I had the ingredient in my process to create them in the way I viewed them mentally. Let’s just say cats I had produced in my past were of different substance and message and style. I love this current experience in making these exciting characters and have more to come.
Hello everyone, the weather here can’t make up its mind, sun ,snow, hail and rain… Oh well! I am warm inside painting on my iPad. Also printing labels for my greeting cards. Still need to load all my greeting cards that are available. Great unique cards for sons,nephews,grandsons,brothers and cousins. Have a lovely afternoon. 🙂

I really want my work to be objects of beauty. My original pieces are created using recycled cardstock as a platform or canvas.
I love cute oddities, quirky and the surreal. I start with a pretty character and build a quirky story that leads to a surreal environment and then return to my character with fresh eyes. The process begins again, till I am happy with the result. I am always careful because I don’t like to over work the piece. Sometimes simple is the very best.
My main characters or little stars:
They are brave little ones, they are courageous, they are intelligent and nothing phases them. They are full of life and know a large part of who they are already and were they want to end up. They won’t be bullied or hemmed in. They believe in their dreams. They respect others and want others to flourish. They love their family, animals and the planets.
Why originals? Why not originals? Bookmarks weren’t always so throw away, and I have decided to take mine back to the unique status they should have. Look at my bookmarks as the adverts in between a movie if you will, they give opportunity to remind you to buy that delicious ice cream you have been dreaming of getting…
My bookmarks are pieces of original art, they can be touched, stroked, a personal treasure to each buyer. The avid book reader will enjoy them as much as their books. Each bookmark has a story or narrative running through them. They make delicious gifts for any young reader who is just starting to read. These beautiful bookmarks can also be framed, as mini originals.
These are made using recycled cardstock, they are thickened into extra layers using a technique I have created that strengthens the platform, for painting on. The layers are varnished as more paint and working is applied. The back is prepped for hanging on its own if required or it can be displayed in a frame. Some pieces require box frames.
I am starting to do my weird and wonderful pieces again. For each new image I want to do short poems or stories. I would really love to illustrate some kids stories I write soon. Doing poems or short stories will get me back into my writing interest again. I want to be able to tell my little ones some bedtime stories with pictures just from mummy. Nite nite
This is one of my figurative abstract images created on made with paper app 53. I made a sale of one of this image today, I am grateful to The Lord for each and every sale over the years at the different points of my life. Thank you to the buyer, I hope the print I send will fulfil your expectations. You can find this print at my etsy shop, just use the shop tab to get you there. it is entitled ‘you will never believe what I heard’. There are also other goodies on my zazzle and Redbubble sites.
