Work in progress.......

Hi just a quick post to show you what I have been up to in my spare time in between teaching and other things. I'm currently drawing whenever I can to create some new designs for prints, cards,postcard sets and jewelry which I will be putting in my online shop which will be opening very soon watch the blog, twitter or facebook for news ! I will also have a stall at a local event Ella Street Festival on the 9th July were I will be selling lots of different handmade items so come and see me, this festival is a great fun family friendly day out and I would recommend to anyone in the area to check it out! there will be lots to see and do!
So here are a few sneaky peeks at what I have been up to.

Also I thought I would share a picture of Astrid our cat who is usually keeping me company while I draw and make things she is sooo cute!

Today we went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.......

I love the YSP and the new exhibition by Jaume Plensa is amazing! Quite often your not allowed to take photos of the art work in the galleries but it was a nice surprise to find out that you could on this occasion! the work was really inspiring and I would recommend a trip to see it so here are a few photos from the day.

You can see more of his work here

This is a personal piece to expand my portfolio and the plan is to create a set of healthy eating themed illustrations, that could be used in a cookbook idea I have!
