I know it’s been a long time since my last blog, apologies, but Happy Halloween to you all!
Thank you to all who entered my design a bear a jumper competition. I had some great entries
and loved the details that had gone into them. Some of my favourites were..
and the runners up were..
Drum roll for the winner…
I loved this one for all its bright colours and the lovely heart. Top drawing Holly Stewart, age 5. Your bear will be on its way soon..
Hurry up! This bear is ready for your postcard entry. I have extended the deadline to the end of the week, 5th June 2015.
So download your bear here and give the bear a jumper!
I have set up a competition running in conjunction with my open house. All you have to do is either visit our open house, collect a card and draw your design; or download this PDF and print out your own bear. Scan or photograph your beautiful bear and then send it to me via email.
Either way, this little chap needs a jumper..
It is one entry per person, I need your name, age if under 12, and contact details. I won’t use any contact details you give me for anything other than this competition, and will delete all details after the competition.
The best entries will be displayed on my blog.
The WINNER will win a bear painted by me, wearing your very own jumper design. You have until June 1st 2015…

Crikey where does time go?? Clearly a New Years resolution ought to be to blog more…
So here’s some new work. It’s portfolio pieces imagined for a young chapter book, they’re loosely based on the idea of a girl whose jumper has shrunk- Oh no! Who would she ring for help?? Badger of course!
Badger, of course, comes straight over
Badger gets knitting.
Hmmm, somethings not quite right.
Third time lucky!
