Have a look at what I've been up to...

New stuff

 Example of a commission piece. Family portrait in watercolour. Please contact me for a quote.

The wonderful Miriam Margolyes has been gracing our screens in the UK with a short series about an American road trip she took, trying to make sense of the Trump victory. She is a refreshingly straightforward, openly biased but also openly openminded character. It reminded me how much I love her! You can buy What Would Miriam Do? merchandise by clicking through to the ShipShape shop. You select WWMD from the drop down list if you can't see the icon. Please note that these are my print partners and all orders are fulfilled by them. Please contact them directly with queries about colours and sizes etc. However, if you have any designs that you'd like to see on merch or any design queries- I'm your gal.

Ooooooh!

This is where there will be shiny new, off-the-peg products to buy or brand new projects that I want to share with you. I've got some really exciting stuff in the pipeline... 

Don't forget to subscribe to the newsletter for sneak previews and special offers.

I have been sent the LOVELIEST reaction video. Painting a portrait of someone you don't know is a really complex process. Photos of them only tell you so much. Part of the joy of my job is building an idea of the subject/s through a strong working relationship with the customer. I won't stop until it feels right. Seeing reactions like this is why. Also- can I please live in his house? 

If you would like to commission a picture, please contact me.

If you'd like to buy me that house- also contact me.
