Last week was the Spring Summer Fair for Top Drawer. It was exciting to see my children’s age cards making their debut with James Ellis! I have done a lot of cards in this pattern style now and it was lovely to see them all together. They will be available to buy in various shops soon. You can also buy them directly from his Etsy shop - https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JamesEllisCom
Happy New Year everyone! Today is my first proper day at my desk since before Christmas. It feels lovely to have the house to myself and not have the incessant chattering of my little girl. She doesn’t even pause for breath! First day back at school today and she wasn’t impressed crying all the way there. It breaks my heart when we have mornings like that but I’ve everything crossed she’ll come out laughing and be back to herself.
On the run up to Christmas I did an illustrated advent calendar on my Insta and Facebook pages. The theme was Christmas around the world with each day focusing on a different country. I loved doing it and am keen to carry on as there are so many countries and not enough days. It was wonderful to draw things I wouldn’t usually draw and I learnt a lot about the world too. Below are some of the highlights…
Yesterday I had a fabulous day in London visiting Selfridges Christmas department. The range of eclectic decorations was so inspirational to look at. I don’t know what was more exciting - spotting some of my Christmas cards I did for James Ellis or the set of 3 animated, singing penguins available to buy for £28k!
Earlier this year I was honoured to be asked by The British Museum to illustrate their Christmas card. Here’s the final result. Available to buy now in the British Museum shop.
We visited Harrods yesterday and were quite excited to see a stand with my name on and cards from my 'Out & About' range with Cardmix.
