Cat Lady in Training

Hi Guys!!

It's been a whirlwind summer!! I got a new cat called Mouse who I adore and I want to get more only hubby says no (for the moment)! But I really want to be a cat lady. My little baby is a little older than a kitten but still whines in the morning for attention just like an infant. And she is also the best of frenemies with Marshmallow so piggy and cat are usually separated. Mouse is a rascal and into everything and always climbing up the curtains but I wouldn't have it any other way.

The best of frenemies

I have already painted Mouse's portrait here:

And here's one of her brother who I did not adopt although he was too cute:

She did not seem like she liked the early snowfall yesterday from this picture.

But later I could not find her and it turns out she had escaped into the winter wonderland. Oh well at least we found her before nightfall! Have you already had snow where you are? It is rather beautiful but maybe a tad too early for the white stuff.

Hurrah I am also in the Wraptious design competition so if you could vote for me that would be amazing. Just click the title beneath each image and it will take you to the Wraptious site. There you must click on the blue button to register your vote. They are also available to buy as super soft vegan cushions.

Is anyone else taking part? Let me know.

Which one is your favorite?

To round out my post here are my Friendly Fill-Ins:

1. I can't wait to have crescent rolls at Thanksgiving

2. I am thankful for my little cat Mouse.

3. When it comes to pie, pumpkin pie smothered in whipped cream wins hands down!

4. A feast is not a feast without a giant spiral cut ham.

March Meet the Maker

Hi Guys!

Is anyone else doing March Meet the Maker? It is meant to be a series of prompts where people post about various aspects of their creative lives onto instagram. I must admit I have not followed the prompts and just did this one about me. Hope it gives you an insight into my zany mind!! I am over at if you fancy following moi. I promise to follow you back.

Happy Creating peeps

Cute book about the rainforest is published

It is fun to see the book I illustrated titled 'An Unexpected Encounter' published by Crees. Crees is a non-profit organization that runs important conservation and sustainable community development initiatives in the Manu Biosphere Reserve. Their aim is to create a sustainable future for the Amazon rainforest through conservation research and community education.

The book follows the character of ABUN as she discovers many wonderful creatures in the rainforest and even encounters a new species of frog!

Here's a video of one of the illustrations in progress:

You can find more info about the book over at the Crees facebook page. Some of the book's proceeds will go to conservation of the rainforest.

Here are more illustrations from the book. Get in touch if you would like to commission illustrations for your book.
