My new Tropical House print is becoming popular! This piece took a lot of turns as I worked on it, so I am sharing ‘behind the scenes’ how I created Tropical House from start to end.

She first approached me to say that she loved my plant paintings and wanted to collaborate with me to create a plant-y design to sell as an embroidery kit. Of course, being a crazy plant lady and always on the lookout for exciting opportunities, I said yes! We talked about her vision of what the design would look like and I started sketching ideas. Happily, she absolutely loved my first draft so I painted it with watercolour and sent over a scan for her to base the embroidery on. I think this is the most exciting bit – seeing my painting come alive as embroidery art, a form I’ve always admired.
Like Amanda said, we couldn’t be happier with the results and we hope you are too!
A few weeks ago we visited Mayfield Alpacas – an alpaca farm near Sheffield and made friends with a bunch of friendly alpacas!
I joined The 100 Day Project again! I did handlettering last year and this year I am drawing wild flowers. I decided to use my Lamy fountain pen and Seawhite sketchbook for this project.
Originally I wanted to paint them all but I realised it’d take a lot of time away from my other work, so I hope to find time to turn some of my favourites into paintings eventually!
I post my 100 day project on my Instagram every day, please follow along if you like them!
I love seeing what other artists are up to with their 100 day projects and I really enjoy these above – what’s not to like about little animal paintings about friendships and smiley kawaii produce!
