I’m very excited to announce the launch of my brand new online shop just in time for Mothers Day!! I’ve been wanting to make my artwork available as prints for a while now but for one reason or another it hasn’t happened! Well it seems the stars have aligned and suddenly, I have an online shop!!

I recently celebrated 1000 followers on my Facebook page! Yay! It seemed only right, to give something back to all the people who have supported me and my art over the years, so I had a little competition and gave away a drawing!!
The winner was Awen Clement and this is her beautiful sleeping baby!
“Dreaming” – Pastels on Colourfix Paper
I have started this project because I have to come to know and respect many Earth mothers and Doulas through my art and my children. These women are a constant source of inspiration to me, their love and strength which has emerged since becoming a mother. I am soon to become a mother to another little bundle and this has only increased my interest in birth, breastfeeding and motherhood! I’m hooked!
The artwork that I create comes from various sources. Much of my art is commissioned by beautiful women who wish to capture the love for their child in a drawing. I have drawn myself in various stages of pregnancy and my children provide a constant supply of inspiration as they grow. I also have photos from my friends and family which I have had the honour to draw!
I thought however that it would be wonderful to encourage ALL mothers who follow my art to participate and get involved!
Please follow the link to The Earth Mother Project to find out more information and to submit your photos.
This year has gone by so quickly and suddenly we are at the end of 2012! My final commission for the year has just left the studio, which means I can start winding down, work on a painting that’s deadline is far enough away to not worry about yet and begin to enjoy the holidays!! :-D
