I'm drawing again...

Yep - I most certainly am drawing again.
After what seem like months, I am working on a series of hand-drawn illustrations designed for Children's Rooms.
First up is Toadstool.

I have a love of Toadstools and all things Fungi. I love to walk into the woods in Autumn and smell it's deep earthy scent.  I love to forage for edible mushrooms - although I am far too scared to cook them, in case I might drop dead!

I have an early childhood memory of gathering large red capped Fly Agaric Toadstools in the Ashridge Forest (close to my Nan's).  I gathered them all up using my jumper as a bag and ran back to show my family.  I must have been 8. Instead of being told they were poisonous, my Nana took them home with us and placed them all on her kitchen windowsill and decorated the house with them.  And why not.  They are beautiful.

I have a small pinterest board - just for Toadstools.  You will probably see my inspiration there.
So what do you think?
Do you love Toadstools too?

Toadstool A3 Print is now available in my big cartel shop.

Also - I have changed the size of the Blossom Geo and Yew Geo.  I think they look better as an A3.

New A3 prints...

If you follow me on Instagram or my facebook page - you might have already seen a sneaky look at my two new A3 prints.

FloraEach day I find a new favourite flower... tulips one day, hydrangeas the next... such is the beauty of nature.. you fall in love over and over again.  An original photograph of summer blooms.

DreamsI love to day dream. Lying under a big leafy tree, gazing up at the sky on a sunny day.  An original photograph of an Indian Bean tree.

Both are now available in my Shop.  - take a look in the NEW section, you will find lots of things I've been recently working on.

♥ NEW ♥ - Botanicals Geo A4 Prints...


You might have noticed in my shop or seen a sneaky peek on Facebook  - my new A4 prints, called the Botanic Geo Series.  They are from the top:  Nettle, Creeping Thistle and Rough Hawksbit. All British wild flowers or as gardeners would call them - WEEDS!

I chose weeds as my topic because they are just as beautiful as flowers but most of the time get ignored or composted!

They are all now available to buy in my shop....
I do hope you like them.
