 He's big, but not very scary. This is the Patchwork Dragon, an idea I had many months ago but never got round to colouring. So, with a week of Crimson themed Colour Collective pieces, St.George's Day Dragons and sunshine I felt the time was right to breathe life into this idea.


As I stir my morning tea, I often ponder how incredibly lucky I am to be working with some wonderful clients. I frequently wonder if I'm really good enough. It can be incredibly daunting, especially those days when deadl...

In the frenzy of a vivacious spring breeze the plants utter to-and-fro; a bunny twitches his little feet as he dreams of chasing carrots, and a young girl murmers wishes and watches as the warm breeze sweeps the dandelion seeds way up into the bright blue. 


For all those who know me well it is no suprise that I adore the Sring season. I just love seeing the fresh vibrant flowers pop into full bloom! Some of my favourites are daffodiles, poppies and wild daisies (despite the hay-fever i...
