Mr Fox

Meet Mr Fox, made by the talented Rachel, who always has something in her house to inspire me! Mr Fox was made using 2 found gloves, fantastic recycling ...and so cute!

Stipey Monster

This is one of my stripy monster designs that sold in the USA about a year ago (copyright with the buyer). I wonder if he made it onto a boys t-shirt somewhere?

Lucky me!

Finding a four leaf clover is pretty rare, maybe once in a lifetime?... so when I found one on a lovely day trip to the meandering river this week I felt pretty lucky all round!

Still life

After a wonderfully sunny and restful Easter break I am inspired and ready to design! Whilst browsing art gallerys I came across some beautiful still life paintings by Vanessa Bowman.(top image) Her work reminds me of some of my favourite still life paintings, by Winnifred Nicholson and of course the master himself Picasso.

Easter Holidays

It hardly seems a minute ago that it was half term, and now the Easter holidays are upon us. For me this means not much will get done in the way of design, although hanging out with children will bring flashes of inspiration to be put into my sketch book. This polar bear drawing is to remind me of those poor polar bears running out of ice at this time of year.

Natural remedies

'Natural remedies' is the theme for my lastest istock illustration, all of which I use myself when needed!
