I was asked by a friend to design a tattoo for her based on one that she had seen with a couple's names woven into a heart design, but she asked if I could do it with Mum, Dad and Tony instead...........this is what I came up with, this is for you Mandi :)

I know it is still just about summer, but I have been busy designing a Christmas card with a bit of a cycling theme, in honour of the shop where I now work. The shop is Bicycles by Design , based here in the Ironbridge Gorge. Pete and Rob, who run the company, also run, The Tandem Shop and The Tandem Experience which was my inspiration for this Christmas card design, Santa on a Tandem!

Having made the floral bookmarks, I was told by the young daughter of a friend that she needed a bookmark, so I thought I'd better make some bookmarks that might appeal more to children (as well as adults)! These are the result!

So, I have this T-shirt which I really like, but which had a couple of bleach stains and a bit of paint on, as well as two small holes.......(think ferret claws might be the culprits there!), and I thought how can I just stop this shirt from looking grubby every time I put it on? The answer was simple......paint it! :)

In the past I have painted a few landscapes in oil, whilst I enjoyed doing it at the time, it is no longer a medium that I use. I have however recently tried my hand at landscape paintings in acrylic, and this is my first, it is a small block canvas showing the cooling towers at Ironbridge power station.............
Well, I can't believe it is 2 1/2 years since I last posted on this blog! It has been an extremely eventful and hectic two years, during which I have been able to do very little art or craft work. However hopefully things are now settling down a bit so that I am going to be able to get more done. I wanted to post a few of my pet portraits on here, which I have done over the years, and some other bits and pieces, so I will start with the pet/animal portraits...................
