Forever in my Thoughts

This piece of illustration is illustrating the feeling of the past and memories fading but always being there.  I have really enjoyed doing rubbings of my dad's badges and medals. This one was a fabric name badge I love the fact you can see the texture in the fabric with in the rubbing I think this is lovely.

Medals and Badges

Cabinet of Curiosity

I am looking at my father's badges and medals that he received while he
served in the American Air Force as my cabinet of curiosity project.

Norwich Castle

I went to visit Norwich Castle for the fist time
last week. it was a good experience there was lots to see
and draw. I concentrated on the jewels that were there
because of the pretty colours (although I havent used colour)
and the intresting shapes they were.

I Heart Southwold

Southwold is a lovely little seaside its got the cutest houses and
a little lighthouse as well. I had a lovely day out here.

Save The Planet

I designed this illustration to sit in the door of
a washing machine to remind you to turn your washing
machine down to 30 degrees while washing your clothes
to help save the planet.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

This illustration is from the project I did on Breakfast at Tiffany's.
The illustration is from the scene when Holly Golightly went to visit
the millionaire in prison and he would give her a "weather report"
to pass on to his lawyer over the phone.

Forgotten About Kitty

This illustration was for a project on Breakfast at Tiffany's. It's from the scene when Holly Golightly played by Audrey Hepburn tries to skip bail and she gets out the limo with the cat and leaves him in the streets on his own, while she gets back into the limo.

I recently took a trip to London to see the Thriller musical. It was amazing and advise I you
to go to see it if you get the chance. While I was there I took a walk along the River Thames, we visited all the main sight seeing hot spots but Big Ben is one that reminds me of my childhood.  When I lived in America and we used to come to England Big Ben is all we wanted to see.

Levington Marina

 I recently took a trip to Levington Marina it was so nice.
So many boats to look at small ones, big ones, new and old. while I was there I took loads of pictures and from those pictures I have done these pictures.  

This is an acrylic print of the boat masts

This is an acrylic painting of some boats that were tied up for the night.

This little boat was all tied up on its own!!! Sad times

When Yellow Wants To Be Become Blue, it Becomes Green

This is another postcard I have made the words "when yellow wants to become blue, it becomes green" are from Russian Proverb. The quote is about envy so my  idea for my mixed media piece came from the saying the grass is always greener on the other side. I have created two areas of grass then the blue symbols the fence and the yellow sky in my picture. 

New Shoes

I was in town the other day and went into Mr. Shoes and saw this amazing
pair of deck shoes I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them and had to have them.
They were so amazing I decided to draw them and share them with you!!

Cities, Like Cats, Will Reveal Themselves At Night

This is an acrylic painting I have done for a project in which I have to create an A6
postcard for the theme Words From The Wise. I have to produce 5 A6 postcards 
illustrating phrases from the book Words From The Wise by Rosemarie Jarski. 
The phrase I am illustrating is " Cities, like cats, reveal themselves at night" by Rurpet Brooke.  I decided on red to be the main colour as it is over powering, bright and fun. I have made some of the buildings bend to illustrate they are dancing in the night and having fun, I kept some of them  straight so that they still resembled buildings.

This is a charcoal drawing of a dog I did. I really enjoyed drawing
this image, I think he looks rather fluffy!

Life Of Riley

This is a charcoal drawing of my Dog Riley. He was named Riley
because of the saying "life of Riley" it means that you will have a good life 
and the best of everything. This is no lie when it comes to my dog. Some times I
think he gets treated better then me!!!!!

1 Of Your Five A Day

Make sure you are having your five a day of fruit and veg.
This is a healthy reminder :)


I took a trip to a village near my home town Bury St Edmunds called Lavenham. It is a pretty little village full of cute houses which are all different shapes and sizes. Lavenham is England's finest medieval village. It has over 300 listed buildings. It has a few local art galleries with work by artist Paul Evans in most of them. Paul Evans creates wonderful landscape pieces. 


While I was at Lavenham I did these two pen drawings.
The top one is of a house in the village and the bottom 
is of the village center.

Things I Own

These are some pen drawings I have done of things that I own.

Rhyming Slang
 This picture is illustrating the slang Tea Leaf - Thief. I created the background using prints of leafs and then painted the cup over the top
My dog Riley enjoyed his day at Ipswich Docks as well!!

Ipswich Docks 
 I recently went to Ipswich Docks. It is a lovely place to have a walk along. There are cafes that you can stop off at and have a cup a tea and watch the boats go by. I have a great time at the docks. I created this picture of the boats using acrylic paint. 
Wish You Were Here
 This Image is for a book cover called wish you were here. I made the sky grey and the plane yellow as it represents you leaving behind grey old England and jetting off to a hot sunny country. 
Create Me A Monster
 This is another monster that I created for the same project. 
Create Me A Monster
 This is a monster I made for a project titled Create me a monster. I began looking at cancer  cells as research for my monster as I wanted to create a monster that wasn't your typical monster. I really like the out come of this monster as I like the contrast of the blue against the yellow
