New Print Launch!

I’ve finally taken the plunge and have had a high quality Giclée print produced of my original watercolour painting depicting a hare in rich tonal colours set against a soft blue background.

The Giclée print is printed on Bockingford 190gsm matt textured paper. It is high quality acid free paper made to archival standards at St. Cuthberts Mill in Somerset.

The print is mounted in an acid free, bevel cut window mount in soft white and comes with a high quality backing board.

The image size is 6” x 6”

Overall size with mount is 10” x 10”

Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity, is mounted and ready for framing and is protected in a clear cello bag. The mount is a common size and so can easily be framed at home to suit your home décor.

*Frame is not included. The frame is shown for display purposes only

The Hare print and my collection of greeting cards are available from my Etsy shop

New Christmas card launch!

I am happy to introduce this little chap as my new Christmas card design for 2020

This poor old teddy began as a quick drawing in my sketchbook a few years ago. I came across him again fairly recently and thought that there was just something about his expression which was asking to take on a new lease of life… and so after deciding on a ‘collage’ approach and adding a jolly festive red hat, here he is – finally ready to join my modest collection of Christmas greeting cards which are available from my Etsy shop

Thank you for taking a look and wishing you all the best for the Festive Season!
