Deep In their Roots



I saw this quote on a notebook the other day and couldn't wait to see what sprang from my fingertips to illustrate it. I was very happy with what I came up with. A cute little fairy. I think I love her boots most of all. So elfin and pointy. Her wings look as if they are just about to flutter . . . or could that be just me.



A close-up of her sweet little face and flower.

As usual available as a print or a card. Just message me to find out how.

I don't know if I told you or not but I also do special Baptism Commissions to help mark that special day in your loved one's life.



Here is a recent one that I did. It has a "portrait" of the little girl who was Baptised and also the nearest Temple to where they live. I include the name of the child, birthdate and Baptism Date. Also if they have a special outfit which has been purchased for the day I try to replicate as best as I can. These are one of a kind, original paintings. If anyone is interested you know how to get in touch!

Once again, Thanks for looking!

A Couple More for 2012



I really like the way the shading turned out on the hair of this one. I've been really practicing shading lately . People say that it was ok all along, but I do like to play and to improve, so I hope that I have somewhat.

This sweet little girl is an important reminder to each of us that as long as we do our best each day, nobody can ask anymore from us. Love the purples and the placid, peaceful look on her face.






I just adore this one. I only rarely do little boys. I love the puppy next to him, with it's little tail wagging . . . just a bit! Little boys and puppies go together like peas and carrots and you can tell that these two are very comfortable with each other. Bestest of friends I would say!

As usual both are available as greeting cards or as prints.

My prints are 8 by 10 inches in size and perfect for matting and framing. Printed on supreme Quality Inova digital Fine art 100% cotton papers, Archival - Acid & lignen free, using HP Vivera Archival Inks.

They are signed and dated on the back. (if you'd like a different size just convo me.)

Copyright will not appear on the sold print.

I will ship it out - safe and sound - to you 1-3 days after your payment clears. I ship worldwide, firstclass, in a hard backed envelope suitable for mailing documents and fine art.

Cards are 4 by 6 inches, glittered or not as you desire. Blank on the inside for your own muse. Artwork is printed onto high quality art paper, once again as above and then mounted onto scrapbook papers and then mounted onto high quality linen textured card. All work is done by hand. The finished card is then placed into it's own clear poly envelope, along with a paper envelope for giving.

Thanks for looking!

First designs of 2012



I guess I have love on my mind because Valentines Day is just around the corner. Love this little ones shoes and fancy leg warmers. Love the sentiment as well.




I tell myself this every day. It is easy sometimes to get mired down in our fears. We must always remember that we are special, each of us, in our own unique and wonderful ways. It is not being conceited to love ourselves. It is necessary . . . for if you cannot find it in your heart to think well of yourself, how can you ever think well of anyone else??? The problems come when you think TOO much of yourself.

As always available as greeting cards, notecards and or prints!
Thanks for looking!
