Covid 19 update

Just a quick post to let you know that during this time, I am still working – painting both for commissions and non-commissioned work. I’m also sending out online orders of prints, coasters and cards. If you’d like to purchase items from me, but prefer to collect from me in CB1 rather than pay for postage, […]

New cards despite it all!

SO excited to get a delivery of new cards this week! Lots of lovely new designs for sending greetings to friends and family at this surreal time. We’ve had some cards through the door, and gifts left on the doorstop in the last weeks, and it really lifts your mood. I do hope this habit […]

New gifts coming soon!

I’m currently checking proofs and looking at samples for a new range of gifts for this summer. There will be new tea towels, coasters, tote bags, and some entirely new products too! Watch this space… UPDATE: Due to the current situation, production of this new merchandise is temporarily on hold. Coming as soon as possible! […]

My new studio

This is the lovely studio that we’ve created over the last year. All my favourite art, and space for my supplies. I’ve been yearning for so long to have a wet and dry table so that I can always have my painting out! Of course, there’s a fluffy day bed for Lumi. Can you tell […]

Cambridge Alumni

I was asked to create the image for this year’s seasonal greeting to all University of Cambridge alumni. It was another heart-in-mouth white ink and a toothbrush snow moment once the painting was finished. I enjoyed thinking, whilst I was painting it, of famous alumni that would receive this in their inboxes, including my illustration […]

Winter Open Studio Sun 17 November 2019 2-5pm

Come along to kick start your festive season with a relaxing browse of my paintings and prints, and a chance to sort some Christmas presents in a lovely atmosphere. Plenty of chat, and comfy sofas. We’ll have mulled wine, something lovely to munch, and some lovely singing from 2:30 to 3:30 by the very talented […]

Collaboration with Dinky Doors!

Have you found all the Dinky Doors in Cambridge? I have been so charmed and impressed by all the Dinky Doors so far – I feel they are perfect creative treasures for our eclectic city. I enjoyed meeting Dinky and Doorky in a fittingly clandestine way and plotting together. I feel honoured to have been […]

Open Studios 2019!

I’d love to invite you to visit me and see my new work at one of my four Open Studio days – that’s Saturday and Sunday this weekend (6th and 7th July), and the same the following weekend (13th and 14th July). The house (151 Hobart Road CB1 3PS) is open from 11am to 6pm […]

Pint of Science 2019

This was my fourth year taking part in Pint of Science / Creative Reactions. Scientists taking part in the international festival, Pint of Science, are paired with artists, who are invited to have a ‘creative reaction’ to their science. I was paired with Dr Paul Coxon of the University of Cambridge Department of Materials Science […]

Primo bacio (first kiss)

I love a romantic commission – this was a very special anniversary present, commissioned in secret. I had to work from photos, as the budget didn’t cover flights abroad. I especially enjoyed the challenge of trying to recreate the azulejos panels on the outside of this beautiful place, and to capture the romanticism of this […]
