Welcome

Welcome to my website – I update it at least once a week, so you will always find something new to see.  I will be posting new items which you can buy direct from me.

 Also, take a look at my Ebay and Etsy shops for a wide variety of prints, comical and informative signs, greetings, Christmas and other special occasion cards. If there is anything you would like to buy, but prefer not to use Ebay or Etsy, please contact me – I can make alternative arrangements. I also have exciting new items for sale in my weekly eBay auctions.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

I was born in North West London, and after spending most of my childhood drawing and painting animals, moved to Folkestone. I studied at Maidstone College of Art. Home is now a village in between Folkestone and Canterbury, on top of the North Downs in Kent.

Below, you will see a few of my new items.

BUSY BEE

This lovely piece consists of a comical Siamese who I have cut from calico, and have stitched to colour-washed linen, which is mounted for display in an embroidery hoop.  I have painted the cat and have painted and embroidered both the little bee and details on the cat itself,  including the thread connecting the cat to the bee.  It is in auction on eBay.Busy Bee cprt

EMPEROR PENGUIN CHICK PEBBLE

This cute little pebble was a special commission. I made him a little snowy patch for him to stand in, and the mound of snow behind him serves as a stand so that he stands upright. To see more of my pebbles please go to my Handpainted Pebble Gallery.  Please note, all of the pebbles in this gallery have been sold.

HANDPAINTED OWL AND BABY PEBBLE

This lovely pebble featured a mother owl and her baby, Little Boo, who is cradled, fast asleep, under her wing. Judging by the sleepy look in Mum’s eyes, it has take quite a while for Little Boo to fall asleep! I made a little star-patterned cushion for them to sit on. This pebble recently sold on Ebay.


 

UNUSUAL HANDPAINTED ITEMS

Handpainted Egyptian-style mirror, with Bastet, hieroglyphs etc., in imitation of a tomb painting.

I have done some quirky artworks in the past, and one of these was this very large, Egyptian-style mirror. She had the piece of MDF cut to size specifically for her bathroom, to be placed above her washbasin. I would have loved to have seen the whole of her Egyptian bathroom!

 

3 – DIMENSIONAL PAINTINGS

FOR ADOPTION – original handpainted 3-D ACEO painting

I particularly enjoy doing 3 – dimensional paintings, and this Guinea Pig one sold on Ebay recently. In this one, I have made and painted a separate, vintage-looking price tag, and have attached it with real ‘string’ around the pig’s neck. I have taken a photo at an angle which illustrates this far better than my usual scanned image.
