I have done a fair few pet portraits lately, unfortunately I can't share them until after Christmas as many of them are presents! However this is one I completed a couple of months ago of Luke the Saluki. Such a handsome dog who is sadly no longer with us. However very much loved and remembered by his family.
If you are thinking of getting a pet portrait done take a look at my listing on my Etsy page for more info.
Cheerio for now x

Tao is owned by a lady called Lucy, Tao was very fun to draw :) If you have never met a Haflinger horse you really are missing out. They are Austrian Mountain ponies. Chunky little horses with golden coats and white manes and tails and TONS of attitude!! I am lucky enough to own my own little golden pony. The lovely Viking... Here he is showing his next door neighbors just how much attitude he has :) I'm looking forward to starting my next pet portrait. I have a hedgehog, another pony and some bunnies to get started on. Wonderful!
I will be advertising my custom pet portraits on Etsy and NOTHS in the next few weeks.If anyone would like to discuss portraits please comment on this post or email me via Etsy or Facebook.

I want to start offering custom pet portraits on Etsy, I need to expand my pet portrait portfolio so have offered to do some freebie portraits to get going with this. Yesterday I completed this custom Budgie portrait for a friend. This pair are just so sweet! I love the print so much I have framed it and hung it in my hallway to look at for a while :)
I look forward to my next pet portraits, I have been asked to draw a snake, a lizard and some tortoises among other things!! I thought it would all be dogs and cats! Haha!

In other news I have just finished a commission for a client of mine, it's for an upcoming event so I will share when I can.
Have a great day all in the rain or sunshine!

Today I had an Art stall at my school's Summer Fair, it has been way too long since my last stall! I really enjoyed today.It felt like a nice reintroduction to the world of art markets. I have lots of new ideas and am excited about the next fair :)

Hi all :) It's sunday morning. I'm sat on the sofa with the dog by my side (he is huge now, I almost did my back in carrying him up the stairs yesterday so I could bath him). I won't be doing that again! I wasn't doing it for fun by the way, when he knows it's bath time (and believe me he knows) he refuses to go up the stairs by himself until he is caught and carried..Then he tolerates his baths and is fine! Funny thing. Anyway yes so it is sunday and the sky is very grey. I feel like staying on the sofa all day and drawing...... Maybe eating raw chocolate cake and drinking lots of Barley cup drinks. Mmmmm.. I have ditched coffee/caffeine and am managing ok on the healthy substitutes such as Redbush tea and Barley Cup.It's going ok and I definitely feel more alert in the afternoons :)
So what I wanted to ask you all about today is workspaces.Where do you work when your at home? My workspace really needs to change. I have finally given in to the fact that my OH needs the spare room for his business. The room is overflowing with camera equipment, boxes, files, batteries and my art things are drowning in it all. My OH owns and runs a company called The flying Camera Company, take a look if you have time :)
So I have been looking around the house and I have identified 2 spaces for potential Art work space. One is on the hallway on top of the stairs, currently there is an over flowing cupboard in the space. The other space would be in our dining room but would mean moving things around. Either way there is a whole lot of charity shopping of clothes/books to do as we just don't have enough space.
I have had a look on the brilliant Pinterest and here are some work spaces that have caught my eye..
So it seems I have a lot of sorting and organizing to do! I would love to know where you work at home and I would love to see pictures!

I heard this song today, it's one I used to know off by heart but I haven't heard it in years. Then today it came on the radio and now I can't stop singing it, I love the lyrics so much. If you haven't heard it before then take a moment to listen,,

Walking in the Mendips with the hound.. The wind was up and it definitely blew away the cobwebs! It was so nice to see blue sky too, England has been so grey and rainy lately. For the first time in months I'm starting to feel inspired. I've been stuck in a work/chores/uni/sleep/work/chores/uni/sleep cycle for far too long. I feel like I'm on the home straight for uni now. Only my research project left to do and one mini essay and a few observations...Easy...( Ha)! I'm looking forward to leaving uni behind me for a while... Although I do seem to be someone who loves to do some course or another.Since I left uni almost 7 years ago I have almost completed 4 courses...Maths GCSE re take, Diploma level 3 in Supporting Education, Diploma level 2 in Horse Care and riding and now my Diploma in Education. I've only had 2 years where I've not been studying since I started school as a little un!
Time for a break and more art time...Although an Art MA has always been tempting ;)
I hope you are all well x
