I've re-designed my website!
I like changing and updating my website, keeps it fresh! Though it takes a while to do and involves me re-learning dreamweaver and ftp thingamajigs... so I don't do it very often!

Would be greatful if people could take a look and let me know if there's any glitches/problems with links.

A couple of roughs for What Goes Up, scanned in and emailed to Tiger Tales now...
And here are some photos from the weekend in my home city of Bristol - it was the St Werburghs City Farm Fair. You'd think these photos are from a rural/suburban part of Bristol, but it's a mere 10 minute bike ride to the bustling city centre!

I spent the day here with my boyfriend, here we are dancing the Lindy-folk! Dancing lindyhop to a ceilidh folk band.. we improvised :)
 Photo's taken by the lovely Lizzie Rees :)

Oh, and in the background you can see some of my plants - tomatoes, runner beans, kale, blueberries, pear tree, herbs.. :)

And so work has begun on my second story with Tiger Tales - 'What Goes Up', about a dragon named Martin who wants to fly -
but what goes up..
..must come down..
 Well, you'll have to wait and see!

The story has been in my sketchbook for a few years, so it is very nice to be getting it 'out there' finally! It feels like I'm starting to de-clutter my head of ideas and doodles at last! It's quite a relief to be getting it all down into a coherent picture book, once it's all done I can let go of it and start developing and sorting out the next bit of clutter!
