My gift tags spotted in Australia!

One of Advocate's lovely agents Kate has recently been on a three week trip to Australia, visiting illustration fairs and meeting clients. She spotted my little gift tags at one of the shows on the Simson card stand. Very excited to see my design in the flesh!

Pastel Moments

I am excited to reveal a new greeting card range I have just finished entitled Pastel Moments. These card designs combine a brown kraft paper background with light pastel shades and limited colour palettes. Each design incorporates a message with a colourful themed border. The range consists of three designs; 'good luck in your new home', 'a little note just to say I love you more every day and 'sending lots and lots of love and hugs on your birthday'. Fingers crossed these will prove popular, and if so I will be making more  in this style. I'd love to hear what others think :)

My illustrations in Advocate's Mag!

Advocate art is the illustration agency that represents me, working on my behalf to sell my greeting card illustrations. They have just released their Summer edition of MaG, a catalogue/trend book showcasing collections of artwork and current trends; helping to give us artists even more exposure. I have been lucky enough to get my hands on a copy, and have spent the last hour or so thumbing through all the amazing artwork. It really is fantastic, an excellent way to show off our work. I am so chuffed to see that quite a few of my illustrations have been included alongside so many well-established and amazing illustrators. I am especially excited to see my delicate Christmas watercolours included on the 'Sophisticated Watercolour' page. Thank you Advocate. I have taken lots of photos so check out the MaG and my designs in the pictures below!

Something for the Dads

It is Father's day soon so I have been coming up with some quirky new designs just for them. I was commissioned to do a birthday card with lots of waistcoats in funky colours and patterns, and afterwards I decided to make a set of cards including bow ties, hats and socks. Let me know what you think! I  will be making these to order so email me ( if you'd like one (they are £2.50 each).
