First Day of Spring

It’s the first day of spring here in the UK and wow what a change we have had in weather. Only yesterday we had snow on the ground and I found myself ice skating to work (without the skates). In a hopeful attempt to bring spring our way I bought myself a little greenhouse and…

I’ve always been a little wary and intrigued about drawing tablets (please excuse my oxymoron) Loving the feel of hand drawn images rather than digital, but after much thought, practice of stop motion animation and watching some exciting animation videos like the one below. I finally decided I’d like to give this a go. So…

Iron Mouse

I’ve been recently going through bit of a decluttering stage (which is still in progress) and stumbled across an old piece of artwork that I gave my boyfriend.
