Preparing for Valentine's Day!

On top of commissions I wanted to create some signature work that I could use for a longer period of time or come back to in a years time! A little bit like my Stag for Xmas. So I thought about what 'said' Valentine's Day and this is what I came up with. I personally am not crazy for hearts and pink but these things scream 'Valentine' so putting them into these images I felt captured the right idea in my style.  I am very happy with the way they turned out!

Both of these illustrations have been put onto a variety of items on Art Rookie. So if you're looking for a different Valentines Day gift thats not a commission but something a little more personal check them out! I'm super excited about these - I hope you enjoy them as much as me!

Present for your Sister

Captured in pencil … 
Here is one of my most recent commissions! A friend got in touch with me who I haven't seen since school asking for a drawn picture of her and her twin sister. I thought it was gorgeous and a lovely present for their birthday. 
The best thing about doing this was that the customer knew exactly how she wanted it done and had 2 image ideas straight away, on top of it (the photo I decided to draw) being lovely anyway. My challenge was to capture this in the illustration. The pressure is always on - very time! But I also absolutely love drawing which us why I will always want to do it. 
This drawing was lovely to illustrate and I'm really pleased with the outcome - hopefully you guys are too! Enjoy!

Welcome to my new website and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
I hope that 2016 brings you all everything that you're after and that it's a good year filled with fantastic and inspiring things! Things that make us want to live, because no matter what we're doing or what we go through - living life to its fullest, doing what we love and sharing it with the people we treasure is the very best way we should spend it!

I am so very excited to share my website with you guys! Please check it out, have a look, and a good ol scroll! It's my first real go at putting one together and cannot contain myself - it means I'm another step closer to officially being up and running as a freelance illustrator! In many aspects I'm doing it now but there are many things I feel I need to do first. So! For now, here it is - the next step to pushing for  career that I love so much I could burst! 

Many things from 2015 motivated me and inspired me - my boyfriend, my mum, dad and my brother, my push into dance fitness classes and my illustration. I had a brilliant year and all those things helped me get to where I am now. So heres to 2016! I know it'll be great!

Can you guess whats going on with some of them?

Three Doggies and a Tortashell

I have here some of my very first commissions. My wonderful friends that asked me to draw their pets for them and of course it was a pleasure. This was actually quite a while back now - probably spring time. It's interesting to see how my style has changed with more practice, I'm more comfortable with the materials now and as a result I can work much quicker. Never the less these guys were awesome to draw and paint!

Getting Ready for Christmas

I know we've only just hit November but when it comes to illustration I have to think earlier than that simply because of time. I have about 5 weeks to get things done and during that last week before Christmas I don't want to send any more commissions. We all know what it's like - things get a little manic around Christmas time so I don't want to rush. Sometimes I wonder if the 'C' in Christmas actually stands for Crazy! But I think I'm definitely one of the crazy ones - and I love it. So if you guys have sent me a request and you'd like an illustration done make sure you get your pictures to me by November the 14th! I'm super excited by all your enquiries but I am also running out of time and I don't want to have to say no to anyone. Can't wait to show you guys the finished pieces after Christmas! x
