Welcome to my website – I update it at least once a week, so you will always find something new to see. On the right hand side of this page you will see thumbnail pictures of the items that I currently have in auction on Ebay – just click on an image for a larger view.
In my online shop you will find original paintings, Limited Edition prints, hand-painted jewellery and other specially selected items. I am in the process of adding my very popular signs, greetings and Christmas cards and stationery to my online shop, so please keep watching! Also, take a look at my Ebay and Etsy shops for a wide variety of prints, comical and informative signs, greetings, Christmas and other special occasion cards. If there is anything you would like to buy, but prefer not to use Ebay or Etsy, please contact me – I can make alternative arrangements. I also have exciting new items for sale in my weekly eBay auctions.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
I was born in North West London, and after spending most of my childhood drawing and painting animals, moved to Folkestone. I studied at Maidstone College of Art. Home is now a village in between Folkestone and Canterbury, on top of the North Downs in Kent.
Sadly, soon after my precious Devon Rex Wispa passed away, my Siamese Oliver followed in her footsteps. I now share my studio with two adorable kittens – Peaches, my little tortie and white Devon Rex, and my new addition to the family, Leo – a cream tabbypoint Siamese.
This lovely painting is based on a photo I took of my own cream tabbypoint Siamese, Leo. I have painted it on an ethnic paper which is so absorbent that kitchen paper has to be placed underneath it for the paint to soak through to. I then have to place the painting in my drying cabinet between each layer. All this contributes to the lovely soft, smudgy and wrinkled effect. I then scattered gold leaf to give a magical effect. It is currently in auction on eBay.
This cute pebble features a bluepoint Siamese police officer with his redpoint sidekick, in their little police car. It is in auction on eBay.
This lovely pebble features a curled up greyhound or whippet. I have made him a little bed from padded cotton fabric – which also is an ideal way to display the pebble. In auction on eBay.
TEALIGHT HOLDERS – now available in my online shop.
I have a collection of tealight holders/shades, complete with glass inner and tealights, available to buy. I have just added a few to my online shop. Please note that all prices in my shop are inclusive of postage and shipping, so there are no hidden extras. To see more designs please go to my Facebook page and scroll down you will see most of the range. I am also now doing Memorial ones, using a photo of your departed pet with a little inscription below. These ones are £14.00 each, plus postage. I can enhance your photo to make it suitable, and you have a choice of background colour. A lovely way to remember your beloved pet.
These pretty glitter domes are double sided, with two of my prints, so you can choose
which one to have on display. I have designs in Siamese – such as this two sided (different image on the other side) Siamese Angel dome, which would be ideal as a memorial to a lost Siamese – Oriental, Devon Rex, Guinea Pig, Capybara, Hare, with some glitter and glitter/snow domes, some Halloween-themed ones, with purple glitter, and an Oriental Black ‘Hubble Bubble’ dome. See my SNOW/GLITTER DOME GALLERY for the designs. I am adding more all the time.
EMPEROR PENGUIN CHICK PEBBLE
This cute little pebble was a special commission. I made him a little snowy patch for him to stand in, and the mound of snow behind him serves as a stand so that he stands upright. To see more of my pebbles please go to my Handpainted Pebble Gallery.
See my Handpainted Pebble Gallery for some of my favourite pebbles.
This lovely pebble featured a mother owl and her baby, Little Boo, who is cradled, fast asleep, under her wing. Judging by the sleepy look in Mum’s eyes, it has take quite a while for Little Boo to fall asleep! I made a little star-patterned cushion for them to sit on. This pebble recently sold on Ebay.
UNUSUAL HANDPAINTED ITEMS
I have done some quirky artworks in the past, and one of these was this very large, Egyptian-style mirror. She had the piece of MDF cut to size specifically for her bathroom, to be placed above her washbasin. I would have loved to have seen the whole of her Egyptian bathroom!
3 – DIMENSIONAL PAINTINGS
I particularly enjoy doing 3 – dimensional paintings, and this Guinea Pig one sold on Ebay recently. In this one, I have made and painted a separate, vintage-looking price tag, and have attached it with real ‘string’ around the pig’s neck. I have taken a photo at an angle which illustrates this far better than my usual scanned image.
