New Headbands now In Stock!


I've been busy creating some more of these scrummy headbands this week-problem is there are 3 of us in the house all with long hair,so half of them seem to get claimed and worn hot off the sewing machine, so I have to make twice as many! Here are a selection of those which ARE still available for sale CLICK HERE TO VISIT MY STORE and see more designs!

So Fragile!



Had to share these gorgeous pics today-I rescued this little darling from the jaws of death ( in the shape of my kitten! ) yesterday. He wasn't injured at all, but sadly didn;t make it as he was simply too young and unable to fly, we guess he fell from the nest and the kitten picked him up.
I did my best, poor fellow and we were all sad to see he didn't make it. An artist friend of mine had already been in touch and asked to use my photos for a painting she would like to do-that will be extra special now after sharing a day of our lives with this fragile fledgling, I sure hope his brothers and sisters fare better! :)

Joyful Heart

This a mixed media painting on a fabulous wood block which I found early this year whilst beach-combing and lugged home as it was crying out to me for some sort of creative decoration!
After waiting several months to be sure I had thoroughly dried the wood out, here it finally is!
Wood block measures approximately 7" square and 2" deep. I have sanded,primed and gessoed the painted surface so the piece will hold and it has been finished with light gloss varnish to really make the colours sing. The remaining sides have been left natural, just as I found it, as this is part of the lovely sea-worn character of the wood and that was a part of the appeal to me. I hope you agree!
Currently available for sale, I am only able to mail this to the UK due to the weight, it would make a fab,chunky,funky piece for your coffee table!Please feel free to comment here if you would like more info on purchasing this piece.

Nature Paintings , New Series

One of the projects keeping me busy this year is a new series of paintings inspired by plants and seeds. I love the washed out colours and crackly,fragile character of cow parsley at the end of a dry summer, these are one of my favourite things to photograph and paint, hope you like it! This mixed media piece is on block gallery-wrapped canvas and measure 20cm x 30cm x 4cm . Sides are painted black so no need for a frame.
Soon to be made available for sale ( I am off to list it in-store right now!) PLEASE CLICK HERE to visit my store!
