shop update

The times are changing...

Hello friends, I have some news to share with you guys today. Our lovely little project "Audrey and Illya" will be shutting up shop at the end of this month, sad times! BUT I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you SO MUCH for the support and kind words you've given us since we opened our virtual doors in 2013. It's been so much fun!

FEAR NOT me and the magical Leanne will both continue to create and sell our wonderful trinkets. Last summer Leanne and her partner in crime launched the amazing online shop MILKSPROUT! Head over and check out all those dreamy treats. To keep up to date with their projects, events and wares here are a few links for you:

And you know me, I can't stop making things and will be relaunching my solo shop where you'll be able to find all of the familiar faces and some super duper new stuff too. I'm also taking on more commissions and digital work so if you've a project in mind drop me an email and check my availability! I'd love to hear from you :)

Thanks again from us both for such an amazing few years and keep in touch with both of us!

new beads

Hello friends.

I've been putting together some new necklaces for the shop and done a small batch of these slightly simplified designs (I mean... they're still covered in wacky patterns but they're a little subtler in size and shape). If ever I try and keep a necklace (which is often) I instantly go for these sized beads... they're so easy to wear and brighten up any outfit. OH and speaking of brightening up outfits - I've got some SUPER FANCY new silk scarf samples on their way! I just need to kick this stupid cold in the butt and take some semi-smart photos and hey presto - IT'LL BE SAMPLE SALE TIME. Oh boy I can't wait to show you!

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!

new work

I've made a few new portraits this week and decided to pop them in the shop! Here's a link!  I've made some scans of them too and next week I'll have a go at playing around with scale and possible prints. I've also been playing around with some brush pens and now I'm inundated with pretty little faces. I have a few to give away so I'll add them as a little thank you gift to the next handful of orders made through the online shop.

I'm off to have a quiet Saturday evening out of the rain. Have a lovely weekend folks!

These little line drawings will be dished out among the next handful of orders from the online shop!

shop update!

Hey homies! Just a quick note to let you know I've just popped a couple of new necklaces in the shop, HURRAH! Totally smitten for neon peachy pink colours at the moment. Can you tell??

A lot of lovely folk ask if these beauties will ever be available for wholesale - unfortunately not these ones. I am planning some slightly simpler designs though that could work! So keep you eyes peeled and hopefully these ideas will start to take shape over the summer!

New necklaces.

Added a couple of new necklaces to the shop this week. In full production mode at the moment getting ready for the fairs, can't seem to make enough beads! I lose hours in the evenings doodling all over them. The cats having a field day trying to swipe them off the sofa when I'm not looking... typical.

Here are 2 of my favourites (If I could justify keeping them all I would, argh!)
