It’s not only rabbits, it’s all happening in the garden..

Mr Rabbit.

I don’t have fairies at the bottom of my garden. I have a rabbit.

I was playing with building up different washes of colour to add texture and depth. I’m hoping there will be more to come..

Black, white and a little bit of colour..

I’ve been trying some new things. I was imagining a world with these two characters, one a spy and one a detective and them constantly hunting/ hiding from each other..

I’ve left a lot of white space as I was imagining this as if it was for a children’s chapter book, so the white space would be where text would go.

Open House

Hello! It’s been a while since I last posted, I’ve been busily getting ready for our open house, www.thebirdhousehove.co.uk. Open houses are part of the Brighton Festival, open for four weekends in May, with over 200 houses and studios being open to the public. Look at some art, have a nose at a house, what’s not to like..AND lots of them have cake!!

We have 5 artists showing in our house. We have the amazing Chrissie Davies, ‘Little bird creations’ whose machine embroideries are stunning.
