Positano Wall Mural

I decided to have a go at painting some wall art in my apartment. I had a bare wall so covered it with an illustration of Positano.

I used pastel tones to complement the other features of my room and I'm really pleased with the overall result. The image was based upon a photograph I took whilst visiting Italy last summer with my boyfriend.

The artwork took about a week (in between working on various other things) to complete and now it makes me happy whenever I look at it. I love having a little slice of beautiful Positano in my own home :)

Summer is Here!

Some new designs that I have been working on. I am loving the weather in the UK right now!

Medium: Acrylic, watercolour and pencil

Happy Birthday Pooh Bear

Winnie the Pooh is 90 years old today! These were some of my favourite books as a child and I once proudly played Pooh Bear in a school play many moons ago :) He's always been a very special little bear. 

I made a quick little sketch using pencils and ink to celebrate.

Happy Birthday Pooh Bear, here's to the next 90! x

UNICEF Commission

This month I was asked to create an illustration for a Space Lectures event that took place in Pontefract, Yorkshire. The artwork was in celebration of guest speakers from the USA, astronauts Mark and Scott Kelly. As a huge fan of all things space, I was over the moon to be asked to create something. Scott has recently returned from his 'year in space' onboard the International Space Station alongside British astronaut Tim Peake. I wanted to design something that encompassed the Kelly twins and also their huge achievements within the space programme.
Below is my final design that was auctioned at a dinner event prior to the lecture. All proceeds will be donated to UNICEF and I couldn't be more proud to support such an amazing charity.
Commissions like this remind me why I love being an illustrator :) x
