A work in is a tiny snapshot of what I have been up to recently (just a section of an artwork on the go). It's another joint venture, see below. The detail in this page took me a while to paint, and gave me some serious cake cravings! 

My blog has been a little quiet lately....but I have been very busy working as an assistant Illustrator on a larger-than-usual picture book, see credits and details above. The book is over 230 pages long and is a private commission direct from the Author/ Publisher. As you can imagine it has been a massive job, and I had been helping Carol- the lead Illustrator, with this for nearly two years. Now the book is published I can share with you a few snapshots of my favourite pieces. All of the compositions (apart from the did-you-know illustrations) are Carols, and these are some of my favourite little bits within the artworks that I did a lot of the work on. I especially enjoyed painting the details such as birds and patterns on the cushions and lamps, and of course all the table/party scenes.
