I'm just about to start a new bird series.
They'll be available as individual original paintings. Any suggestions?

It was a pleasure to work on a series of Guinea Fowl for a good friend of mine.

This painting was an excellent opportunity to try out different styles. I used a very basic wash for the main body and feathers, then went in with watercolour for a detailed head. The feather marking were made with gouache, creating a beautifully textured finish.

I keep getting in trouble for calling these guys 'Stingrays' apparently the correct term is Rays, especially when like me you can't remember the actual name.

I've been throwing up the idea of doing another Magazine cover. A little bit short on time at the moment but the @ashleygraham Harper's Bazaar UK cover is just gorgeous! Look at those purples!

The Planting Guides were also a very good geography lesson for me. I don't think I could locate many of these towns without Google Maps.

I like to leave things to the last minute through procrastination.
How do you handle deadlines?

A Golden Whistler.
When I was doing my Native Tasmanian Bird range, I had to do some research to find yellow birds.
Bright yellow on the underside and olive green wings makes this guy absolutely stunning!

Personally I try to live sustainably. In 2018 i've challenged myself to reduce my waste, this also extends to my business practice.
______All my calendars are printed on recycled paper and packed in biodegradable packaging. This is a easy consideration in these eco-conscious times.
The calendars was designed to encourage home gardening. Growing your own fruit at home, gives you access to seasonal produce straight from the garden, reducing distance your food has to travel and increasing its sustainability. When purchasing fruit and vegetables, we don’t consider just how far they have travelled and the wastage associated with that; fuel, storage costs and packaging.

Irises. This is still one of my favourite prints.
At the moment these cards are event only as I am low on stock. Would you like to see more botanicals online when I restock?
