NEW WEBSITE & A Drawing a Day in the month of May.

To celebrate the launch of my website and because I love to draw, I am doing 'A Drawing a Day for the month of May'.

Here is a fantastic opportunity for you to purchase a low cost piece of art and help a charity at the same time.
So heres how it's going to work:
* Every day in May I will be doing a drawing, which will be posted on Facebook.
* If you want the drawing, send me a private message with your bid.
Note: Please add the drawing number with your bid. All bids start at $15 to help cover (worldwide) postage and materials costs.
* Winner will be contacted re: payment and postage details.

And of course best of all you also get to help a charity while treating yourself. At the end of May I will be donating 25% of all profits to the Salvation Army.

Copyright Agency's 'Artlike competition'

I have an entry in the Copyright Agency's 'Artlike competition', which is run through the Australian Artists Resale Royalty Scheme.

My entry is 'Identity Crisis'. This work is very personal to me and delves into the many roles we play in our lives and how we show a different faccet of ourselves with each one.

and give my painting a 'like'. If you are able to share the link on your facebook page so your friends and family can give me a like to it would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance lovely people xxx

Woohoo Easter is on the way. I have already been indulging with some seriously good chocolate hot cross buns.Yummy

This illustration is featured in the Illustration Rally 'Easter Rally'  (Illustration #4). There are other fantastic Easter Illustrations in the Rally too if you want to check it out. My favourate is #6 with the bad bunny stealing the eggs and chicken.

Skateboarders are not my usual subject, though who says you have to do the same thing all the time! Plus they are amazingly talented and I am always in awe when I watch then do tricks. Skeletons on the other hand...well I am fascinated with Dia de la Muertos and have them all around my house so its about time some ended up in an illustration.
