This is just a small test mermaid. I’ve got a larger image planned, but I didn’t want to rush into it. I’m a little rusty at the moment, so need to get back into the swing of things!

Sorry for the lack of updates, so much has been happening lately! I’ve been super super busy! My work was displayed at the Arts University Bournemouth, I graduated and finished university, and exhibited in London for the first time, at the Embassy Tea Gallery!! I’m heading back to London tomorrow and then I can finally rest! 
I’ve been sketching on and off, but finally starting to create final images again. I’ll be working on these lovely mermaid girlies in the next few days, so stay tuned for more work! 

A selection of my final images for my last project at university! 
It was very tiring, but I achieved so much! 

To see more, take a look at the issuu book version.

Slowly sorting out my professional practice stuff! Got some business cards now, and some other little bits on the way!

I know it’s a bit late, but happy easter everyone :) 

Was feeling a bit fed up with project stuff, so decided to do something else! I bought part 2 of the Hobbit the other day, and have watched it so many times already so here is a dragon :) It’s not Smaug, but maybe it’s his second cousin?

I believe I have managed to get one! Very excited to see it! Early birthday present for me :D

The first of the double page spreads for my current children’s book project. It’s one of the easier compositions, but I needed to start somewhere! No text yet either, this will be added later!

I now have a Society 6 page! I’m selling a few of the previous pieces I created, so go and have a look-see! You might find something you like?

YAY! Cath Kidston liked and commented on my print! So happy about this!

On my way back from Weymouth in the car, I saw this little guy strutting down the pavement with the biggest bunch of flowers you’ve ever seen. It was mother’s day and you could tell he was really impressed with himself. To top it off he was wearing the snazziest sun glasses, that although were far too big for him, made him look awesome!! I wish I had that kind of confidence! His mum must be super proud! 

Thank you little Weymouth man, you made my day!

The YCN Cath Kidston pattern printed out and wrapped around a few objects to show how it might look as a wrapping paper. I’m really happy with how they all look! I think the four pastel colour variations go nicely together.

The sketches and digitally coloured drinks and fruit for the YCN Cath Kidston pattern.

The YCN Cath Kidston pattern I worked on, showing 4 different colour variations. From the brief I decided to go for a summer drinks/ cocktail theme, looking at the age band and type of person we were meant to be designing for I felt this was appropriate. Still not sure which of the colours I prefer. 

Had a lot of fun researching different drinks and reminiscing the times when I was able to afford a cheeky cocktail!
