I'll be selling Christmas cards plus various gifts to suit a range of budgets, from framed artwork and prints to handmade keyrings and earrings.

Illustration Friday: Tail


I've been neglecting Illustration Friday for quite a while now so I'm going to try and get back into it. This week I've chosen this illustration from a while back as it hasn't made it to my blog yet and I think it ties in quite nicely to the theme 'tail'.

Website update

I've given my website a wee update, so if you'd like to see some of my more recent work, you can have a look here: :)

Out of the Blue October Arts Market

This Saturday 5th October I'll be returning to one of my favourite craft fair venues- the Out of the Blue Drill Hall in Dalmeny Street, Edinburgh. I'll have prints of some of my latest illustrations available as well as new earring designs.

Also, apologies for being completely rubbish at updating my blog recently. I've been very busy with lots of exciting things, including getting ready to set up an Etsy store and GETTING AN AGENT! I'm now very proud to be represented by Jodie Hodges at United Agents!

I promise to upload some of my more recent work soon :)

East Neuk Festival

This Saturday I had a great day running the kids craft station at the beautiful Cambo Estate for the East Neuk Festival. It was a gorgeous sunny day so we managed to hold it outside, which made it even better!

All the crafts were bird themed and we made lots of things like paper plate nests, flappy birds and finger puppets. Kids are the best at making things. Here are a few pictures of the day!

Upcoming fairs

I am very excited to be part of a great event run by the Sick Kids Friends Foundation this weekend. The annual Teddy Toddle and Summer Fair will take place at Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh on Saturday 15th June from 12 noon-4pm and I will be exhibiting my work at a stall there. Details here:

"The Teddy Toddle and Summer Fair is one of the Sick Kids longest running events that has continued to grow each year and we are hoping that this year will be even bigger and better! The Teddy Toddle is a sponsored walk for the little ones and their favourite teddy but it is also a fantastic day out for all the family with many activities, entertainment and some of the children’s favourite celebrities for them to come and meet!  We hope that you can join us for the day and continue to help make kids better."

Also, the following weekend on Saturday 22nd June, I will have another stall at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall in Edinburgh. Details here:

Hannah/ IF: wool

These are some sketches of a new character I've been working on. Her name is Hannah and her wooly jumper means she ties in nicely to this week's Illustration Friday word 'wool'.

IF: Wings

I decided to avoid drawing any birds for this week's Illustration Friday word 'wings' and opted to work a bit more on my dragon character from last week instead. Her name is Violet and her wings have taken her high up into the clouds :)

Puppy drawings

I made my kitten drawings into cards and they have been popular at the craft fairs that I have been doing so I decided to do the same with some puppies and see how they do :)

I drew this dragon character for this week's Illustration Friday word 'myth'. She still needs a name!
