Etsy Shop Update/Reopening

My Etsy shop has been receiving a little bit of an overhaul these past few months and I've finally uploaded some listings to it! I guess you could call it a miniature reopening. In the process of doing this I've also been drawing a lot more, and trying to hunt down, catch and keep my style. I feel like it differs day to day depending on what I've seen/read/heard - I guess I'm easily influenced creatively. I do feel like I'm getting there though and I'm expanding my "themes" more as I go to see how far I can stretch. It will be interesting to see how I progress over 2017!

These listings are a mixture of new and older pieces that I'm still happy with, and more will trickle in as I create...

Moon Keeper A3 print - £15 plus shipping. Finished painting this a couple of weeks ago.

Cat Friend A4 print - £5 plus shipping

Imagined Flowers blank greetings card - £2 plus shipping

Honeybee original mini gouache painting in vintage frame - £35 plus shipping

I'll try to always have a few things to list at a time, so I will do shop updates on here as regularly as I can get things printed.

What would you like to see in my Etsy shop? More "useful" things like notebooks and other stationary? More mini originals? Pins? Let me know!

Sketchbook Pages

Or rather, iPad sketchbook? I completely splurged, as in, most money I have ever spent in my entire life in one go, on an iPad Pro recently for work...ITS FOR WORK! Who am I kidding. So I've been happily sketching away in Adobe Sketch and Draw. These two are a couple of my recent experiments. The top simple botanical illustration is available in greetings card form on my Etsy, and the bottom one is, well, Bettie Page! I'm really enjoying adding colour to everything now and seem to have developed an obsession with bubblegum pink. I think that probably has something to do with the fact that I painted my shower room "Hansel and Gretel" pink (By Fired Earth) as soon as we moved in a couple of months ago, but I'm loving it on EVERYTHING now!

New Greetings Cards!

A quick blog post today to let you know that I have some brand new greetings cards in my Etsy shop! Each card is blank inside for your own message, and they all come with a brown paper envelope.   If you're in the UK I'll send them via Royal Mail first class, and if your anywhere else in the world I'll send them via Royal Mail international standard.
