Great British Seaside Donkey Ride Illustration

Another Great British seaside themed illustration to add to the collection… This time in the form of colourful donkeys! Donkey rides have been a British seaside tradition for the past 100 years, so they simply had to feature in my collection of Great British Seaside limited edition prints. Made using cut and assembled re-cycled paper, this print was so fun to make as I got to go wild with colour and pattern, two of my favourite things!

Sunday Inspiration

Clare Owen Illustration

This morning I stumbled across the incredibly sweet illustrations of Bristol based Clare Owen. Pure eye candy. The whimsical subject matter combined with the beautiful detail made me instantly fall in love. Feeling suitably inspired, I will be spending the rest of my Sunday creating something pretty. Photographs to follow 🙂

First post!

Day in the studio.

This weekend I’ve been at my friend and photographer Robert Lister’s studio taking some snaps of some of my work for my new blog (and soon to follow Etsy shop!). He specialises in Actor / Actress portfolio headshots, so photographing my 2D collages was a bit of a trial and error case…However, twenty cups of tea later, here are the final edited shots 🙂
