Apologies for the lack of posting.. am glad to say, due to being so busy!

I'm excited to have been working with the Dutch greetings card company Quire who produce beautiful cards and stationary. The lovely and talented illustrator Louise Cunningham very kindly introduced me and things seem to be going well. Here is a sneak preview of what I have been painting...

I am working on a range of cards with Quire, everything from birthdays, weddings, exam passing, bereavement, to xmas cards.


Also still working with the talented author John Crawford on a series of children's books and illustrating the upcoming website! Watch this space..

And I have, of course, been thinking, doodling and dreaming up new stories of my own.. as well as becoming absorbed by the piano in our front room, making cakes and pies, picking the last of the medlars in the woods (with my own Mr Medler too..) and then making medlar cheese (photos to follow!) Ceilidh dancing, lindyhopping, guitar playing and laughing around the dining table.

Loving the last full moon, ahwoooo!

And, my peppers have finally turned red! (while it's snowing outside...)


And here's an apropriate snowy song from the lovely Kate Stables (This is the Kit) 'Birchwood Beaker'

...only Odin knows....
