I take my work very seriously. Here is an illustrated recipe of a Strawberry and Buttercream Victoria Sponge
Cake, fully tried and tasted, and approved by a full birthday party!
Easy to make, light and fluffy to eat... No excuse not to give it a go!
Print available from my shops here and here; also featured on the The Draw and Cook website here!

My 'Sixty Feathers' painting is finished and framed. (painting 70 x 100 cm; framed 78 x 108 cm; watercolour and ink on 300gsm Fabriano cotton paper)
It's nice to step back and look at it, ready to fly to its next destination. It feels a bit sad not to have to
sit every night with my feathers anymore; I'll start my new project tonight!

Feathers again! Sounds like a perfect topic for Easter.
This is work in progress on a large illustration of 60 feathers (on a beautiful 300gsm 70 x 100
cm cold pressed Fabriano paper) . After nights of looking at them from very closer range, I can't wait to step back and see it finished! (and it's comforting to
feel strongly supported by my devoted cat as shown on the last picture...)
I will post the finished picture in a few days, watch this space!

Here is the busiest time of the year again, loads of Christmas Cards and Calendars flying off my shelves, new
designs in the oven for Spring and forthcoming International Illustration Fairs... And so little time to post on my blog!
So here is a summary of what has been happening:
1. The Collaborators have featured some of my Christmas illustrations on their lovely blog:
2. For those who are still considering posting nice Season's Greetings Cards instead of impersonal texts /
emails, you can still get my original designs here!
You will also find colourful calendars for fruits and vegetable lovers: "Fruits in Season" and "Vegetables in Season" Calendars, as well as my "Twelve Trees" Calendar by
clicking on the links.
And in a few days, everything will be available for purchase directly from my website: cards, calendars, art prints, and new products will be added after Christmas.

Saturday was Apple Day at the local Farmers Market (West Hampstead), which happens to be my topic of graduation
from Art School many (many...) years ago.
My teachers had then told me it was
probably because of a subconscious feeling of guilt, of indulging myself to my passion, tha apple being the objetc of my sin (and me being Eve?). I have kept that in mind whenever I have felt the
need to justify my choices!
