About

How dogs got wings

So how did it all begin...hmmm.... I fell in love, my old dog died, I quit my job, and I moved halfway around the world (sounds a bit like a country music song!).

I fell in love.....
.......with a wonderful man who believed I was talented and encouraged me to turn my random drawings in to something more. Being a bloke he had to convey his feelings in some practical way so built me a fabulous art studio where I could lock myself away and draw.

My old dog died.....
.... sadly my beautiful lab/shephard cross Lizzie died. I'd had Lizzie forever and she'd been there for me when no-one else had. So I listened to sad songs to sooth my broken heart and heard Tom Petty's "Its Good to be King". The lyrics resonated with me and "When Dogs Get Wings" illustrations was born.

I quit my job and moved halfway around the world .....
.......so not long after my husband had finished building my beautiful art studio he got a job offer in the UAE. We packed up our lives and travelled halfway around the world. I'm lucky enough to be able to take a bit of a career break while I'm here and focus full-time on my art.

.... and thats how it all began
