The first set of new drawings are now up on my shop - each one is an original with her own unique personality, so when they're gone they're gone!

About

Thank you for visiting my shop! Each listing is a little step in my journey of remembering.

I loved to draw from a young age, but after completing a foundation year at art school in London I allowed my paints to collect dust in the attic as I travelled, got married, worked a plethora of jobs whilst studying literature and then had my own children.

My love of drawing lay dormant, but the more I saw the simple, natural creativity displayed in my children, the more I mourned my own creative losses. I was both thrilled and terrified at the thought of picking up a pencil after so many years, but when my youngest daughter started school it felt like the right time to rekindle that childhood passion and carve out time for art. This shop is the fruit of that labour!

One of my greatest creative cheerleaders has always been my cousin Rachel, who runs a letterpress stationery business called Prickle Press, and as luck would have it she was looking for an illustrator just about the same time as I was beginning to draw again. We were so excited to launch our first collection of stationery together in the spring of last year, a range for little ones called 'Little Prickle', and are both looking forward to working closely together in the future.

You can see my journey of remembering how to draw again by following the Instagram link below...
