Stayin’ Alive… 2D

Our VERY green bathroom is extremely dark. I thought it needed brightening up and so not being a knowledgeable green thumb….more serial plant killer, I  impulsively went out and bought a bright pot and a selection of succulents to add a bit of pretty. A few days later all was not well…all my new babies were looking a little sad. It was only then that I thought to look up how to actually care for my new plant babies and GUESS WHAT!!!???? Thanks to the lovely people at I have learnt that succulents need at least 6 hours plus of sunshine a day. In light of this new information I have moved my now happy succulents to a sunny spot and hit the watercolours to create some 2D versions instead. Hopefully these don’t need as much care and attention.

Guess What? I’ve joined the kids on Instagram

That’s right Peeps…forget those Kardashian kids….I have now joined the ranks of the “Selfie-obsessed” and opened an Instagram account.  Fortunately for you, you will not encounter any lurid pictures of my various body parts, instead I will share my love of all things colourful, retro and anything adorable.

From Little Things Big Things Grow

I’ve been doing more and more art using Illustrator lately. I wouldn’t say I am an expert by any stretch of the imagination but I do love the scalability and lovely clean lines you get. Here is the latest image I created…available now on Society6.

I’ve been a bit obsessed with birds lately. Not sure why. I think I will turn my doodles into a nice bright pattern for my Society6 shop. I’ll keep you posted.

I’ve also created some felt birds just like some I had seen on Etsy.

Best Seller

I really love designing patterns. I am surprised which patterns become the most popular on Society6…often not the ones I would have guessed.
The number one best seller by far is my MCM Diamond design.
The inspiration was West German pottery of the 1950’s but with a colourful twist.

I’m a bit late in sharing but my little dental superheroes are finished and been very happily received by my client. Introducing…PB and Floss.

I’m hopefully going to be a bit better in blogging than I have of late.
