Just thought I would post where I've been for the past month or so. As you might have seen if you follow my instagram, I sadly suffered a bereavement in December (my mum passed away not long before Christmas) & been away from home a lot of the time since with family.
My mum was always a huge supporter of my artwork & I am slowly getting back into doing things ❤️
I've been doing some handmade craft work lately - including making these little wreath brooches using some wooden charms made from my artwork, & also some cute ones I had around : )
These guys are for sale in my etsy shop now - just £5 each. They brighten up winter coats & make great stocking fillers!
25% off all artwork prints in my shop from now until Dec 20th!
I've also added a lot of new handmade items to my shop including many one of a kind works!

I’ve just overhauled my Patreon & Ko-fi accounts to gear them towards taking sketch requests in exchange for a small donation!
On Ko-Fi:i (Sketch request will be drawn asap!)
? I will draw a little pencil/biro or ink sketch request for every £3 contribution made!
✏️ For £3 = A pencil/biro sketch with a splash of colour by marker or digitally.
✒️ For £6 (2x coffee) = Inked simple drawing.
You will get an edited scan.
On Patreon: (in $USD which I have tried to match to the £GBP amout of Ko-Fi) Patreon is a monthly pledge but you can cancel at any time. Sketch requests will only be sent after payment clears at the start of the month however (from 1st December onwards.)
? I will draw a little pencil/biro or ink sketch request *monthly* for every $4 pledge!
✏️ For $4 = A pencil/biro sketch with a splash of colour by marker or digitally.
✒️ For $8 (2x coffee) = Inked simple drawing *monthly* for every $8 pledge!
You will get an edited scan.
These aren’t commissions so simple/single character/not too specific requests.
Original characters, fan characters, official characters & anything else welcome!
If you want a sketch request like the ones above but aren’t on either Ko-Fi or Patreon & do not wish to get an account, I can also take them via Paypal Just pop me £3 or £6 GBP along with your request & I’ll get it to you asap!

I recently went over my ACEO original art card collection & have re-listed the available ones in my shop. These were made between 2010-2014 mostly using markers & other traditional media, sometimes embellished with glitter & other bits!
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals and are an excellent way of building your own, affordable, little art collection. They look great frames or propped up in mirrors, picture frames and book shelves. They also make wonderful gifts as they are easy to slip into a greetings card.
Each one is a one of a kind original miniature artwork. These are the one's I have for sale & they can all be found in my shop - there is also a two for £10 offer on cards priced between £5-£7.
This is a re-make (yet to colour it) of my a picture I drew for World Mental Health Day several years ago, representing the One in Four mental health statistic: 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year. *

Just some inking of a punky princess accompanied with gold acrylic marker ~ 👑
