Happy In - between

I like this time of year the in - between time, the time  between Christmas and New Year.. everything is so quiet. Everyone has stopped rushing around and everyone is waiting for the next celebration and thinking of the hopes and dreams of the year to come. All of the Christmas madness is over and all is still... its a kind of magical time.. dont you think?

Two New Themes

Two new themes I'm working on this year are out of shape buildings and domestic kitchen designs these are aimed at art licensing and I will be developing these ideas for Olympia

Some design ideas Im working on.

I'm always working on ideas sometimes I just go half way with them leave them and go back and develop at a later stage, so for these kind of ideas I work small. Ill come back to these later in the year and show you what Iv come up with..

Dont forget the wee ones on Valentines day !!

 Just cos I'm wee doesn't mean I don't have a big heart.......

" Little bird BIG  heart"

Im working like mad filling up my new Etsy shop with originals this month so please visit from time to time if you should so wish!
Iv  suddenly got a lot of requests for artwork which I'm so happy about, some for paintings of all sizes  some from galleries for bigger work some for textiles.All this makes me very happy. I'm also putting the finishing work on the illustrations of a children's book too so busy days ahead for me... but that's how I like it to be after all I could be doing this full time soon.
Next month I shall be starting work on a whole new portfolio of designs to be launched at Brand Licensing in London in October. I may, if  all goes well be posting little tasters of work from time to time.. its going to be a busy year so please stick with me for the journey..
