One of my customers sent me this picture of their new cabinet with my doorknobs - I’m doing the same with my own, but with matching colours to go with my peacock feather lamp! Who says you can’t use your own products 😉
Just casually cooking up a batch of doorknobs in a cake tin 🍰 #ovenfresh #bakeoff #nokilnnoproblem

Curious about this strange #lichen ... also seems to have little hairy leaves?  I imagine it’s reflective of the clear air up here, but it looks alien! #dayofthetriffids
Where my drawings end up... Here’s my miniature #regency illustrations transformed into ceramic doorknobs ✨Right now there are some being used in a piece of bespoke furniture from one of my customers!  I can’t wait to see it 💛 #upcycledfurniture #regencyera
This little #dragonfly was one of my followers’ favourites when I was drawing him - and yes this really is how small I draw most things!  The challenge is finding frames to fit them ☺️ I kind of prefer my art tiny, a throwback to when I first picked up a book of Thomas Bewick prints from my university library 📚 This piece is currently on sale at The Little Shop framed for £28 - but if you are interested in buying any of my original artwork do let me know as I’m currently deciding which originals I might sell next (and you direct followers will always get the special prices!) #thomasbewick #miniart #dragonflies
Dramatic Walk through #cheddargorge today - extremely muddy but we were fuelled along the way with a spot of loose-leaf tea and some beautiful scones with jam #sugarrush ☕️
Okay shopping small is really hard!  I fail to do so regularly... But looking through the lovely artwork at my latest stockist #thelittleshop just makes me think what a more rewarding experience it is to shop from a small shop rather than dragging yourself around a massive mall... It’s not just about supporting your local economy (which you are), or making a creative person smile (which you will do) but you also get a really great product which is more unique and personal ✨ Speaking of which here’s a shout out to my sister @theilexwood who is making some gorgeous handmade salves and herbal lovelies - all natural and like nothing you could find in Boots! #shopsmall
