Whimsical and cute illustrations, painted and hand stitched from my little studio.

Hello I'm Louise. Welcome to my shop!

I am usually found to be in 'a world of my own' day dreaming of little stories and illustrations to accompany them. From the age of nine, I made my very first picture book of illustrated birds, using the feathers from my grandma's feather duster as their wings and tails!

The magic and beauty of nature, whether on the land, in the air or under the ocean has always been a huge inspiration in my artwork, I also have an appreciation of animals and their world. How do they communicate? what are they thinking? They see a world that we take for granted. All these thoughts project themselves into most of my artwork and embroideries, telling cute little stories along the way.

I have a degree in Illustration from the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside, and I have worked for many clients in children's publishing, editorial, advertising and greeting cards. A sketchbook is always by my side, a place where I store all my weird and wonderful imaginings ready to take form into a special piece of art. As the illustrator of over 25 books, illustrating for children is my passion. There is nothing more I love to do than be at my desk and drawing board painting and drawing with Penny, my little cat by my side!

I made my first embroidery when I was about eleven years old after my mum introduced me to it. After making my first 'French knot', I was hooked! I love to be quietly stitching, becoming lost in the embroidery as each stitch unfolds a story, taking me to the 'world of my own'.

All of my illustrations, whether painted or embroidered are one of a kind pieces. I hope that my creations, whether it is a fine art print, an original piece of artwork or an embroidery will bring happiness to a child, or the child within you!


p.s I also love cats
