Hey everyone!

Lately I have been doing some doodling/ sketching to try and note down new ideas for paintings and do give myself some more practice.

The reason I have been doing this is because I am going to be starting an Art and Design course in September. I am so excited to learn and develop my skills and share it with all of you! I have been quite ill the last 8 months with severe leg and back pain – and my artwork has really helped me through out this stressful time.



two of my favourite things




I hope you have enjoyed looking an these sketches – there will be plenty more updates coming soon! I will be trying all sorts of new creative skills once I start my course, which I can’t wait to do and share with you.


Don’t you just Love… Love?

Created on Watercolour paper. I have painted the background with watercolours (slightly) and drawn the illustration in black ink pen.

I’ll eat your heart

Found this painting I did a couple of months ago today while I was sorting out my art stuff. I’ve named it ‘I’ll eat your heart.’ I’ll be putting it up for sale on my Etsy soon, and I might do a similar bigger version when my art flare comes back!

Pregnant Monster Woman

Last night I had a dream that I was pregnant, as well as a couple of other girls who I didn’t know, and even though nothing was said in the dream, I felt they were all monsters! I think this had something to do with watching one of the latest episode of Supernatural ‘The Slice Girls.’

Drawing Something out of Nothing

Do you ever look at a random scribble and see something completely different?
Last night Jamie was drawing a (very) rough sketch of a pool table for his brother, and he left it on the Computer desk. When I saw it today I saw this cute little monster:

I wish I had taken a picture of the drawing before hand, but I didn’t think about it at the time!

Do you ever make little illustrations out of nothing?

I Love You; Patchwork Girl

A doodle of one of my original patchwork girls with a balloon… only this time she is holding a heart shaped balloon for Valentines Day.

Alien and Fairy friends meeting in the garden…. original canvas painting.

This is my newest painting Alien and Fairy friends meeting in the garden. I have textured a 12×12 inch canvas board with ripped paper, card and flower stencils and painted in acrylic, emulsion and watercolour paints. I based this painting on a doodle illustration I did a while back…
