Just to let you know

Snow Queen card

Castle Gallery at Ludlow Castle have some fresh prints and I’m making some cards to re-stock with them in about a weeks time.

The Deepwood Gallery in Ludlow which had some of my cards and prints is sadly closing so I’ve just removed my things and wished the extremely lovely Karen well.


My etsy shop is open for cards, prints and originals
I can work on special orders and commissions
if you would like me to.

So you know

Hafod – Peacocks in Paradise

Hafod Estate in Wales.
This is part of the Ladies Walk at Hafod. Well worth looking up this enchanting place if you like walking.
There is a wonderful book called ‘Peacocks in Paradise’ relating the history and relationship Hafod has with Croft Castle in Shropshire.

Magical poem by Mikai ~ a recent commission

‘The natural world you hold in your hands
will speak things that are hidden
and unfold dreams
into your minds eye’
Words by Mikai.

A recent commission in watercolour and gold.


Mikai is 10 and wrote this short poem last year.
His grandma commissioned this piece for her daughter, Mikai’s mum.
I loved working on this one very much.
It seemed to unfurl by itself and naturally with suggestion from Mikai’s words.

🌿 Wren ~ a new watercolour

Wren and Ladybirds

Watercolour and 24 carat gold leaf. Available unframed. Update SOLD

I’ve been thinking about doing a Wren since a bird watching friend mentioned that this little bird might be a good subject for a painting. I have to let an idea sit for a while and then sometimes it decides for itself that it’s time to appear.

The tiny Wren is the most common bird in the UK – something I hadn’t known until exploring further for this painting. He is kept company by Ladybirds and ivy, which they often nest behind.

Hope you like him!
