prints

Hello Friends!

First off..

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

..and secondly… I have some new prints in the shop! Take a look at these beauties!

Inspired by those wonderfully weird ceramic Staffordshire dogs. I couldn’t resist those faces..

Available in 2 sizes and 2 designs - you can even buy them as a set of 2 twins or a combo set featuring one of each! Matching cards are also on the way

experiments printed

These 3 portraits came about while I was playing around digitally with limited colour palettes. I wanted to do something more painterly and a little rougher around the edges. Something a bit more serious looking. I picked some of my favourite colours to frame them - their details pop out at you. What started as a completely random drawing has inspired me to develop the style and take it further. Perhaps I'll crack out the inks and watercolours and have a go at painting one of these faces in the flesh, so to speak. I'll keep you posted, I'm sure there will be many clumsy splodgy outtakes over on instagram, ha!

I'm so pleased with how they look printed. The colours are stunning. I've just popped them in the shop in case you're interested. They're available as A3 ad A4 prints and come signed on the back. Here's a link!

FABRIC FINALLY

Well THIS is a bit exciting... I got some fabric samples back and to celebrate I've just made all of the patterns available to purchase through my spoonflower shop! During the pattern project I set myself last year so many of you requested fabric and it's always been something high up on my ever growing 'to do' list. I was over the moon when my samples finally arrived and my brain is literally buzzing with projects and possibilities. If you're interested in getting creative and treating yourself to some new fabric for your stash or a new sewing project you have lined up, here's a link! I've also popped a handy little link to my spoonflower shop on the menu bar of my site for easy access.

I reckon I'm going to be switching around availability of certain designs - mainly to keep the selection fresh and up to date with current work but I haven't properly decided just yet. So I thought I'd make them all available for the time being. I'm still churning out new patterns and revisiting older ones from earlier in the pattern project so expect plenty of updates!

ps - ANYTHING you do make please send me photos, I would love to see what you do with these designs!!

New work

These 2 new faces are some of my favourite portraits to date I think. I love the simplicity (even though I have an inner urge just to smother them in patterns and clashing colours... I'm going to resist for now). I've decided to print them up nice and big and they're now in the shop if you'd like to snap up a copy. They'll only be available for a limited time though. If you're interested in purchasing the originals I'm selling them each for £120 + postage. Feel free to drop me a message! They're much brighter in person too! Lovely colours to work with... Here's a link to the prints in the shop!

Custom pet portraits

That certain time of year is looming, the shops are filling up with fairy lights and tinsel. Perhaps someone dear to you* has a special fur-baby they'd like to show off rather spectacularly over the mantle piece...

LOOK NO FURTHER.

Pet portraits are here to stay! Available over at the Audrey and Illya site.

 

*yourself included.

Cut off deadline for international custom pet portrait orders = 1st December. For UK residents the deadline is 10th December. 

SOS - Southwell Open Studios!

Hello!

I'll be showing off some new work as part of the Southwell Artists Open Studios next weekend (27th & 28th August). It's £4 and you get to have a good nosey around everyones beautiful studios and see all the ace art they've been making. I'll be based in the Reach UK building right in the middle of town (address: Prebend Passage, Southwell, NG25 0JH). I'll have prints, cards and a whole bunch of new framed and unframed work available to buy. Swing by and say howdy. For more info have a look at the SOS site.
