Newly published designs

I'm very fortunate to still have designs licensed and published by Flamingo Paperie on a regular basis.  Here are a few that have been released in the last few months.  I particularly like the new 'Lemons' wrapping paper.

This card is called 'Four Little Boats' and is from a collograph I made several years ago.  I love how they have embossed the boats and the little fish.

These are two of my favourite new cards - Kingfisher in the Reeds (also embossed) and Long Tailed Tits.  The Long Tailed Tits design is from a new drypoint print which will be available at my Open Studios in July.

And finally, co-ordinating with the wrapping paper, is this citrusy notecard set; 'Oranges and Lemons'. They are all available from my website.

Bus Stop Competition Winner!

As usual, my blog posting has become very sporadic of late as I've been so busy.  So here's a quick update.  Back in February I was one of three winners of a competition, run by Milton Parish Council to design the artwork for three bus shelters that were being refurbished.  Everyone in the village was eligible to vote and my design called 'Wildlife in Milton Country Park' received the most votes.

Money to fund the project and pay our prize money came from a local housing developer. They were installed in April and we were featured in the Cambridge Independent Newspaper.  It was really exciting to see my artwork on such a large scale and I'm pleased to say it's received very positive feedback on the local social media platforms.

The other two winners were Chris Thomas and David May.
