New Calendar Project

Over the last 3 months i've been working on a little project, to create a 2013 calendar. I wanted to try something a bit different but still stick with my love of nature. So I decided to paint all the illustrations in watercolour and for the theme to be woodland creatures.




These are a few of the illustrations that will be in the calendar, it will be available in my shop in the next few days and makes a great little gift for Christmas;-)

Oh Deer Cushions

A few weeks ago I entered some of my drawings into Oh Deers pillow fight competition. My cushion designs are now into the second round where they can be purchased from the oh deer shop for a limited time (two weeks). Im really excited to get my hands on these, so if you ever fancied owning a cute hare with antlers cushion or snuggling up to a soft lizard, here's your chance! 

A little bit about the cushions - They're Vegan and made with a super soft faux suede and come complete with the fibre insert. They're completely machine washable at 30°c and hand made In UK. The cushion has a stone coloured back cover - and zip fastening. They measure 43 x 43cm a smashing size!

Hello:) So its been a pretty long time since i last posted and theres been lots of changes, drawing and traveling to catch up on. The bigest change over the last few months is that I moved from Melbourne Australia back home to beautiful Ireland with a month in India on the way. I didn't get too much drawing but will be posting lots of lovely photos of India soon and plan to keep this blog more updated!!

Creatures of the woods





Lately i’ve been working on a project with the idea of combining woodland creatures, nature and nymphs. Ive always loved the idea of humans and animals being mixing together and humans with an animal personality. So inspired by lots of mythology and folklore I will be creating lots more of these illustrations to add to this series. Heres the two ive done so far:)

Hello there!



Welcome to my new blog:) I decided it was finally time that I had somewhere to share my recent work, ideas and all the amazing things that inspire me.

This is a piece I did last week, it still feels a bit unfinished so I might try experimenting with it still. Hope you like it! X
