Festive Pet Portraits & Market 2019

Okay, so it is already February 2020, and I’m only now managing to bring myself to document, reflect and make again on my own artwork! (Since last blog post in October ’19.) Unfortunately I’ve been on/off ill quite a lot since November 2019, and on my good days I’ve been putting all my energy into…

Witchy Illustration

A couple of years ago, I did some ballpoint drawings for Inktober, and ended up drawing this wee witch and her cat. I enjoyed the outcome so much, I made a few other scenes of them together. After making small prints, they proved to be a popular duo online and in sales, so they’ve made…

Sep/Oct: Kids Art, Market, Studio

This is a nice time of year for me to reflect/prepare and be inspired. I’m currently well underway in the planning for Fun A Day Dundee 2020, and feel inspired and motivated for my own art practice also. I have 4 Christmas markets over November and December which I’m excited for. This will be my…

Little Witch Drawings

These wee drawings began for Inktober last year, but I like her so much, and so do others it seems!, that she’s made her way into a bunch of prints and is now having new adventures.

This summer, I brought along my work to Peel Farm for their summer market. There was a great variety of stalls, food, drink, and live music. A great way to start the summer at an outdoor market! Thanks to everyone who supports local businesses and artists. Here are the photos:

Plant Power Day 2019

Another successful Plant Power Day at The University of Dundee Botanic Garden! There were drizzles of rain throughout, but that did not stop the crowds! Kids loved the chalk boards, colouring in sheets, communal canvas, cork hearts, and the nature trail sheets I made up. Loads of different stall and activities for families all day,…

Animal Drawings/Paintings

April – July 2019 Here’s a selection of some of the paintings and drawings I’ve done over the past few months. Mini paintings on wee wooden slices, coated in varnish, with a magnet or pin fastening on the back. Custom pet portraits still available on this scale and on paper for traditional pencil/painting. Mini paintings…

Running FADD 2019

At the end of last year/start of this year, I became engrossed in Fun A Day Dundee. This year was different as the number of participants who took part increased (dramatically for the ones in January… went from looking over 60 people to 90), we got funding (super yay, thanks Creative Scotland), and I had…

Pet Portraits 2018/2019
