My online shop on Etsy

Well it's been a little while to come to fruition, but I've setup my online shop on Etsy and I'll be gradually adding my artwork prints to it.  I'm pretty excited about it, and really looking forward to seeing how things develop.  You can check it out here ...

Hope you enjoy it :-)

A peaceful spot

I've had great fun developing my take on owls. I've experimented with a few designs and then colour combos.  In the end, the artwork delivers the emotions and scene I was hoping for.  I'm super excited to have completed these and they just look fantastic printed.  That's one of the nice things, seeing how wonderful the prints look.

I'm also pretty excited about my little owl family.  So cute :-) and another fun foray into real media/computer work.

hoot hoot....what's that I hear?

wow I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted.  Things have been super busy for me and the family at the moment. I've been working on some new artworks, and one of them is almost finished - I hope to post this soon...

new things coming...

A new year and new work... I've got a bunch of things that I'm working on at the moment, some which I can show now and some that will take a bit more time to develop.  I'm really excited about my recent artworks and I hope you like them :-)  Here's my latest, and it's been a long time coming but I'm pretty happy with the result.

It's got some movement, texture and simplicity, all things I was looking for.  I hoped to create something that would appeal to a wider age group of children.

Hopefully soon, I'll have some more cool news to share.
