'Mam', a photo by jina11 on Flickr.

For my Mam's birthday this year. She adores Orangutans and one day if I can afford it I'd like to take her to Borneo. Until then she can look at this...

My DL size card design this year. I think in relation to the season perhaps they've had a fall out because she didn't like her christmas present...

1 for £1.50
4 for £5
10 for £12

Contact me for any orders.

"Blake" - 7

This is my favourite poem so I thought the name 'Blake' was a good one.

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art.
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

William Blake

Hello again. I've been away for the weekend and I went to see Phantom of the Opera (which was amazing) and now I am busy busy beeing to try and get stuff ready for the galleries and fairs. This is my latest piece. Considering they're small birds it took me ages to paint this. Think it was all the paler shades and tiny feathers. Thoughts?

"Wor Waddle" - 5

5th in the second coming of a painting a week...admittedly most weeks I paint more than one but this week this will probably be one of the few as I'm off to edinburgh. Might have to pop into the zoo. What do we think?? Also considering a line of geordie inspired names.

Hello!!! So I probably run the most boring art blog any of you lovely people follow...and that kind of shows in the fact that I don't have many followers. This is probably because a lot of the time I just press the little button on my flickr and post the same images. This time however I thought I would share some photos that aren't on my flickr. 

I put up my first solo exhibition on monday morning! bright and early (which for me translates into sleepy and minging) but I thought I would show you the photos I took...

 Mummy Gelder helping me out...

 Boris keeping time...
 Upping the marketing and promotion....

So yes I fully intend to keep this blog better...and if anyone has any questions please wing them my way and I shall answer them on here as a form of Q&A / Better Blogging. Ciao x
