Spring Lambs!

In the spirit of Spring, I thought I'd dig out something a bit seasonal!

I did this little painting in 2007 when I lived in the beautiful Scottish Borders and there were lambs aplenty to draw. I miss that aspect of country life, in the city you miss out on all those gorgeous seasonal changes in the landscape like lambs appearing in the spring and fields being harvested in the autumn.

Today though it is unseasonably chilly and windy and I feel very sorry for all the little lambs braving this weather - what a shock to the system that must be!

Just a quick sneaky-peak at part of a lovely commission I'm working on at the moment. Still totally in love with drawing those guinea pigs!

Yay! Giclee Prints At Last!!

I am so excited to finally be able to put some gorgeous giclee prints up for sale on both etsy and on

The images are from "About a Bear" which is being published by the lovely Harper Collins, and is released in September.

I am just so pleased with how the illustrations have translated onto a large scale format, printed on the most gorgeous heavy weight archival papers, you can see every texture and detail. The colours have reproduced fantastically too which is just as well because when you see the book, you will see that it is particularly vibrant!

Hope you likey!

Dancing Guinea Pigs

Just to prove that I am still alive and kicking, here is a dancing guinea pig I drew today!

I have been busy busy busy with lots of exciting things, (hence the lack of blogging). Apart from dancing guinea pigs, my brain is working overtime developing my second book for the lovely Harper Collins whilst trying not to think about the fact that the first, "About A Bear" is shortly off to Bologna to try to impress. Keeping fingers and toes firmly crossed!
