Finally I have everything back in order. A month ago I had my studio broken into in London and had everything taken. I am now back in the game with new computer and scanner.... this is the first piece of artwork I have done to celebrate. More on the way.....

So here is the first experiment of "an original", I have used pastel paper and gouache paint, with chalk pastel for the background. I am going to frame this in a box frame incorporate a bird cage around the bird. I'll post it up as an image wen it is done.
It's been great to use new materials and experiment again!!

I have been unable to update my blog for a while as I have been working hard on the Ballet book which I have Finished!!!
It has gone to repro and will be out later this year. I can't post up any more of the images for copyright and exclusivity issues.
I am now in full swing of the Big Bouffant color artwork...
So in the meantime here is little drawing... done in my new studio in Stoke Newington.

My Cousin Olivia is getting married this summer and she asked me to design some logos for her invitation. She is tying the knot at our grandfathers apple orchid in somerset, home to the cider 'Orchard Pig'.... hence the piggy and apple illustrations.
So here is a sneak at what Elephant White is shaping up to look like. It is going to be a Novelty book with all sorts of amazing embossing delights, and foiling and tings. These are the last of the samples for Bologna Book Fair and The London Book Fair. I am too excited for this project.....
The week of the show was a while ago now, it completely exceeded my expectations and was a great week. Thank to all of you who came down and showed the love and all who purchased and lent a helping hand. I drank a record breaking amount of tea whilst curating.

I've recently done this sample for a story called Rags to Riches, which is being taken to Random Hse. There are exciting plans for these dolls to be manufactured and celebrities and clients with design their clothing. It's early days with this project so I'll keep you posted (insufficiently I am sure)
Around November I got a email from a lovely man called Will Brenton, Director of Wish Films and producer of many other creative enterprises. He had sent me over some of the most beautiful stories he had written. Since this joyful day, with the help of my amazing agent Ellie Wharton, the stories have landed in the nurturing hands of publishing co. Templar and the book is due to go ahead this year. There are no words to describe quite how exciting this new venture with Will and these stories is... watch this space.
I have once again been neglecting updating my blog. I've had way too much on my plate. But I've been poorly and I am lying in bed and finally doing some much needed posting!
...SO many changes have been made and here's the final result of the Ballet book spread.
Last week I was up in London and had a mega meeting with Calrton ltd. where we were finalizing all the spreads. This book is now in full swing and is going to be GREAT!
