New Beach People print!

New finished screen print, first one of 2019! Spring beach people print complete. This will be popping into my online shop as soon as I have some better images of the artwork ready. Please message me if you would like one sooner though!


This is the second in my series of seasonal beach people screen prints showing how differently people enjoy the beach in different seasons, and the third (summer) is already art-worked and ready to be exposed onto screens.

Christmas cards

This year’s new cards, which will be for sale Christmas 2019, were naughty cats and naughty dogs. Here’s the naughty cat card to tempt you into buying some for next Christmas (nothing like getting in there early!)

Braunton Christmas Market

I’m a bit slow with my posting lately, its was a busy patch in the run up to Christmas with markets and printing! Here as some pics of my marquee at the brilliant Braunton Christmas Market. A big thank you to everyone that stopped by to look at my stall and chatted, and especially you lovely folk who bought stuff!

Becoming a market stall holder, oh what a lovely cain (and able, table)! Braunton Contemporary Craft Market

Again, my ingenious fella had a brilliant idea to save me spending anything on a table for Thursday's market. My table has come together nicely from old floor boards from our house. I really like the idea of having a bit of the new Devon home that has allowed me the time to be creative and given me the space to screen print, to come with me to the market!

I've also ordered some wire mesh paneling from a shop fitters online shop, so I can have something to hang some pictures on, and hopefully be more visible as a result (you have to use your imagination with the photo though and erase the support fella from the image!)

Check out my online shop to see what I'll be selling on Thursday and order anything you like if you can't make the market in Braunton from 10am - 4pm.

Maker to market

Becoming a market stall holder!

I'm practising my best cockney rhyming slang ready for my new Thursday market stall at the Braunton Contemporary Craft Market! I'll be there from Thursday 12th July, but the market is on this Thursday if you are in the area and want to check it out. As I've never done this before to sell my prints, I thought I'd chat about my progress so anyone else doing this for the first time might find it helpful. (posts will not just involve learning rhyming slang, i promise!

Holiday scribble diary

I've just been on holiday to Cornwall for a few days, and as this is one of my favourite bits of the UK I wanted to keep a scribble diary of where we went and what I saw. Here are some of my scribbles.
