Super Princess

Today is a very special day, today I get to share with you a new series of work called 'Super Princess'. These illustrations were done to celebrate the life of the original Super Princess, Ava Florence-Beth Rosemeyer.

Her mother, the wonderful Sheye asked me way back in March if she could commission me to do a drawing of her daughter, Ava. Through Sheye's incredible art direction this developed into a series of illustrations that pushed me both creatively (Ava was a girly girl and therefor obviously loved pink, a colour I normally avoid!) and emotionally, I would spend hours reading Sheye's beautiful blog & looking at her stunning photographs of children. This is one of MANY, many favourites, I chose it because it reminds me of what I try so hard to capture when I draw.

Sheye has asked me to share these images with everyone, so I will be selling them as prints in my Etsy shop and a percentage of the sales will go to the hospital which cared for Ava. I'm not brilliant with words, so I'll just show you the pictures.

New Work

Today I finished 2 new illustrations, which will be for sale later on today as prints in my Etsy shop (LOVE Etsy!)

They were intended to be summery prints, but the autumnal vibe that has settled on London over the past few days seeped in and I'm so glad it did.

Summers Arrived!

My goodness it's been a long time since I last blogged, it's been a busy couple of weeks full filling orders, keeping out of the way of decorators & catching up with good friends. Also the sun has finally appeared & touch wood seems to be hanging around for a few days yaayyy! My flower fairies looked particularly lovely enjoying the sunshine this afternoon.

Another little tooth fairy, appeared briefly before flying off to her new home.

and I'm so, so happy to be able to add another couple of beautiful boutiques/galleries to my 'Belle & Boo Stockists'. The red Door Gallery in Edinburgh, just in time for the Edinburgh festival and Carly's gorgeous shop Nest in Adelaide, Australia.

Right more soon I promise, have a lovely weekend everyone.
