Fortnightly Update – Friday 13th May

Thank you for your support!

I have to say a huge THANK YOU – the launch of “It’s Okay” at the end of April was an amazing success and it’s all down to you. I’m still pinching myself that I get to do what I love and that you have joined me for the journey.

You can find the collection here. I’m starting to dream up my next series already.

Sunflowers for Ukraine – a charity project

I’m super pleased to announce that prints of Sunflowers for Ukraine, feat. Vincent the Dunnock, are finally up in the shop. It took some time to get them absolutely perfect but it was worth it – they’re printed on gorgeous Hahnemühle German etch textured paper, and I can’t wait for you to get your hands on them. 

This is an open edition print, fulfilled on demand and shipped to you straight from the printer. 50% of profits go to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, and they’ll be available for as long as the appeal is open. They’re available in three sizes, and I can easily add more if there’s a size you’d like but can’t see.

If you buy one, I’d love to see how you display it! I’ve deliberately picked sizes that can be easily framed – I always recommend a frame with a mount (that’s a card border) so that the surface of the print isn’t touching the glass. 

You can read more about this painting here.

Finally, an update on…

…the peregrine falcons at Salisbury Cathedral. I’ve mentioned these before – there are now four fluffy chicks, and I love watching them on the webcam!!

You can watch them here.

Fortnightly Update – Friday 8th April

In this edition I’ve got LOADS to tell you, so hold onto your hats…

If you’re here, then you’re presumably aware – I’ve got a WEBSITE. Apparently I need one in order to be taken seriously. It’s got a SHOP and everything. Right now, it has Mona, Nigel & Ali on it, and there will be lots more on it by the end of the month. So here’s a quick round up…

Arriving Friday 15th April
New prints: Richard the goldfinch and Jenny the bluetit. These two appeared in my group earlier this year as “Bird of the Week” and they’re too good not to share. These beautiful gicleé prints are A5 sized and will retail for £35, including postage – but over Easter weekend (Friday 15th-Monday 18th April) they’ll be 25% off. Get in quick for a bargain!

Mini originals: my obsession with robins continues – I’m releasing FOUR of them. These adorable little characters come mounted, ready for a 6 x 8 inch frame. At £40 each, this is the cheapest you’ll ever get your hands on an original piece.

Arriving Friday 22nd April
Sunflowers for Ukraine (feat. Vincent the Dunnock): I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for this one to come back from the scanner!

I’ll cover more in the next newsletter, but 50% of profits from this artwork will go to the DEC Humanitarian Appeal. 

Arriving Friday 29th April
“It’s Okay” Collection: a series of paintings exploring how we can learn to love ourselves from birds. These loud, confident little lovelies don’t worry what others think of them – they just are. There are five of them, and there will be two sizes of prints for each available too.
