Happy Holidays -A Special Gift from the Art Licensing Show








It's the 1st of December already and here is a happy holidays pattern I made for you.




I am please to tell you about a project I was involved with early on this year. The artists at ArtLicensingShow.com have been working on something VERY special for you and your community; 92 holiday theme coloring pages!

They have all come together to create this mega colouring book that will be complementary for you to not only download and colour, but to also share with others.

It's the desire of the Art licensing community to get these merry pages into the hands of those who need them most. For example, children’s hospitals, nursing homes, recovery support groups, counseling centers, shelters, study groups, places of healing and hope, schools, and anywhere where people gather.

If you know anyone who would be interested, they can sign up for this resource at color.artlicensingshow.com on or before #GIVINGTUESDAY, Dec. 1st, 2015.


Please share and enjoy this special gift thank you.

Add fun to your year- The Final Pattern








So here is my final pattern for 2015. Here she is Miss Sagittarius. This has been my personal all year long project.

I decided to celebrate each month with a new pattern on the theme of Zodiac signs. I think it is important to set your own personal projects.It really helps your art work to grow without any restrictions imposed on you and you can just play around with ideas.

I really enjoyed the challenge of creating my zodiac girls. I hope you enjoyed my calendar pages too.

Here are all my patterns again.

From my desk this week - Wall Art for Kids





Hello from my desk this week. It feels very long time since I have been on my blog and able to share my projects with you. It is so nice to be back in my studio again.
Over the summer holidays I received an e-mail from BoomBoom Prints. This company specializes in custom prints  for nursery art and products for new born and parents. The original owners of the company where looking for some artwork for their new born and a saw a gap in the market for artistic nursery art. The company commissions many artist who are parents themselves.  You can read about the artist here on their blog. Recently I have been wanting to develop more work for the children's home decor market so I thought I would try this website with some of my illustrations.

Here is my little collection of wall art based on a circus story. I have been developing this story in my ownportfolio recently so it felt like the right subject matter to use.
The circus story is an imaginary world where animals put on the big show with tight rope walking cats,acrobat tigers,juggling dogs and many more animals ready to put on the big performance hopefully capture the imagination of small children.
You can visit my store here.
