    Bespoke artwork, made with love...

    I take inspiration from my lifelong love of children’s literature and my own experiences as a busy Mam and a dedicated Primary School Teacher.  Every one of my unique designs is crafted in my home studio - with love and affection painted into each and every design.

    Bespoke Illustration Services

    When working alongside authors and publishers, I can adapt to the clients needs and produce physical or digital artwork. I develop strong relationships with my clients in order to fully realise their ideas and capture their words and imaginings through initial sketches. Each stage of the illustrating process is communicated. I offer confidence in the result and realistic timescales.

    Creative Space Workshops

    Spending time on my own artwork has helped me to find a space for calm in a busy world. This realisation led me to develop Little Flowers Creative Space, an opportunity for families to attend regular workshops together in order to learn a new creative skill and build confidence. This year’s unusual circumstances have meant that physical workshops were no longer possible so it was important for me to find different ways to nurture and encourage creativity in a simple and achievable way.

    Over on Facebook, my Creative Space group has become a daily feed of ideas, photos, videos and shared art and craft inspiration for families to try at home. The emphasis is always on trying something different or attempting a familiar skill in a new way. I try to provide ideas that use readily available resources so that families don’t need to spend lots of money, just invest quality time!

    I wanted to offer affordable art resources and craft kits so that the many families shopping online could find eco-friendly equipment to complement their creativity at home. I am delighted to now be working with Treewise (who create recycled newspaper pencils) and Stib, who are an award winning UK company that have developed affirmation pencils for children.

    Having worked in schools for the last 20 years, I firmly believe that creativity provides children and young people with an essential outlet and provides a way to communicate and be present. Now more than ever, our children and young people need opportunities to share their feelings and talk about their experiences – being creative can be an important part of that journey.
