About Me

Hi! I'm a freelance illustrator working from my home studio in Wiltshire where I live with my very patient partner (it's hard living with a messy artist) and our bouncy sprocker spaniel, Merlin.

I work in a variety of art mediums both traditional and digital. My favourite tools to use have to be my watercolours and coloured pencils or Photoshop.
Even though I do use digital mediums such as Photoshop I try to use them in a more traditional way, over the past few years I have managed to create a style that I'm happy with which creates incredibly traditional looking digital artworks.

I'm extremely inspired by the natural world which you will see in my artwork. Animals feature throughout my work from the small fancy rats and pet dogs to the larger wild animals like bears and lions.
I've recently been expanding my style and portfolio which means there is a bit of a mix available in the shop with both artworks and illustrations. I paint from the heart so when a feeling catches me I use it. This also means my work can be a bit eclectic which I think has it's own natural charm.

All of my products are created by hand in my home studio meaning that the utmost care is taken for every item that is sent out to its new home.
Thanks so much for supporting my art and my business!

Frequently asked questions
Can I track my order?

If you want to track your order please choose the tracked shipping upgrade. You will then be able to track your order.

Standard shipping doesn’t include a tracking number so if you have chosen the standard shipping option you cannot track your order.

If you haven’t chosen tracked shipping I cannot be held responsible for not giving you a tracking number.

Can you make a custom piece of art for me?

Yes I can! I’m more than happy to work from photos or an idea for any occasion. If this is something you’re interested in please get in touch and we can discuss your needs.

Can I get an art print of one of your greeting cards?

Yes you can. Just get in touch and let me know what you’re looking for and we can discuss sizing and price. All my work is created in house so I am able to create most designs for most of the products I stock.

Can I get combined shipping?

Combined shipping costs are automatically calculated at the checkout however if you are ordering a large amount please contact me first before making the order for a more accurate shipping costs.

Why is shipping so expensive?

I calculate the shipping costs using the weights and costs for packaging each order.
Unfortunately international orders to America and Australia for example can be more expensive due to the distance.

However, if you are ordering multiple items and the shipping seems too high or you feel you have paid too much get in touch and I can give you a more accurate shipping cost as getting combined shipping costs can be difficult with mulitple items of various sizes.

Does marking an item as gift mean it's personalized and gift wrapped?

No. When marking an order as a gift through Etsy this means that there will be no prices included in the invoice. Instead you will get a gift note if you've left a message.

Marking a greeting card as a gift with a note for example will not mean the card is printed with the note inside and sent in it's envelope.
The card will be blank and sent as normal.

If you would like a personalized card with a message please contact me for more information.

I currently do not offer gift wrapping.

Custom and personalised orders

I take custom orders for designs or customized versions of my current designs on products. Please bear in mind that the prices will be greater than the original priced product. This is due to you ordering artwork from me and it is then priced accordingly to the amount of work and the product itself.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I don't currently offer gift wrapping.

If I order a pet portrait can it look different to your examples?

This is something I prefer not to do. The examples of portraits shows my own style and if you order a portrait this is the style I will create it with.
If you're wanting a portrait with a different look get in touch to discuss your needs first. If a portrait is made with a different style to my own I will need to charge more as more time will be needed for the work.
Otherwise it might be best for you to look elsewhere for another artist who has a style more to your liking.

Why is there a 1 - 6 week wait for International deliveries?

EDIT - international orders are currently unavailable. If you’d like to make an order please get in touch. The postal services are currently incredibly busy and under a lot or pressure from COVID, Sales and the Christmas rush. This has caused significant delays to both local and International deliveries.
Recent international deliveries have taken between 8 days to 6 weeks to arrive depending on where they're going and when they are collected. I unfortunately cannot control postage times.
Please order early and consider the potential delays you may experience. If you are unsure feel free to contact me before making your order.
