The Catto Gallery, London

Had a lovely time at the Catto Gallery in London today.
It was the private view for the 'Stars on Canvas' exhibition. I was invited to create a canvas for auction for The Willow Foundation charity. A great cause. With the money they raise, they offer seriously ill 16-40 year olds special days out or experiences.
It was great to see my canvas on the wall along with lots of other fab artists and also some great stars.
It was lovely to be invited to the private view and a few celebrities that had created artwork also turned up; Ricky Gervais, Ian Wright, Vanessa Feltz and The Honey Monster!
Above are a few piccies from the event.

Bidding for my canvas ends on Sunday. Click here to get bidding! The
money will go to The Willow Foundation. This charity creates special
days out and experiences for seriously ill 16-40 year olds.

Toy Story 3

Had fun watching Toy Story 3 in 3D today.
I especially laughed at the 'Three peas in a pod'.
They reminded me of my 'Two peas in a pod' Hehee!

More greeting cards designs

Here are some more greeting cards, in a 'girly' range.

My Peg Dollies

I am currently making these Peg Dollies and hope to sell them soon. Some of the Peg Dollies are inspired by well know children's stories such as; Alice in Wonderland and Little Red Riding Hood. They are decorative dolls and ideal for children's rooms. I also plan to create bespoke Peg Dollies for weddings etc. They would be especially good as cake toppers. I will be creating little house boxes for them, which I will show you as soon as they are made. Hope you like them!

Greeting cards

I have been designing and illustrating a range of greetings cards, which I hope my agent will be able to sell in the future.
Here are a few samples from my collection of Christmas cards. Let me know what you think!
