A long overdue update!

Hello m’dears and m’deers!

I hope you are all safe and well. Life has had a low vibe for me recently as I work though some health issues, but that hasn’t stopped my creativity.

First of all I completed a portrait of “Earth Deer Spirit”, my main guide at this time in my life. He revealed himself to me on a rainy afternoon, while drumming under a young Oak tree. He smells of rain and earth, is as dependable as a Yew, and speaks with the voice of the land.  

A high resolution download is available to my patrons over on Patreon.

Prints, cards, and other goods are available on Red Bubble.

I will have a selection of prints and cards to buy in person soon.

I was asked by a friend Martyn to create a custom piece of art for his new business, “Green Fuse Garden”. Following on the popularity of grow your own veg, Martyn is wanting to encourage people to grow their own cut flowers. This will be of benefit to our local ecosystems, and bring beauty to our doorsteps.

You can learn more about the project here:  https://gardenfuse.wordpress.com/growing-a-vision/ 

Finally, I am happy to announce that my “Milk Comes From Mothers” design is available to buy on apparel from Bohemian Hippy. 100% of the profits go to establishing Lotus Heart Sanctuary, a safe place for cattle. At present the design is only advertised on a small number of items, however you can email Bohemian Hippy to choose any style of t-shirt or hoodie.

Latest Art: Earth Deer Spirit

A green stag bellowing in the night

At the beginning of my formal shamanic training, I sat beneath a young oak tree and drummed my heart out. I asked for someone to help guide me on my studies, and keep me on the right path.

From the earth came forth this amazing land spirit who took the form of a deer. He cloaked me in moss, and gifted me a crown of antlers.

Acrylics on 12 x 16 inch canvas.

Not for sale.

Prints will be available soon.

New skill: Resizing t-shirts!

I was given a Voltron t-shirt by my partner. It was far too big for me, so I had been wearing it as pyjamas. Of course, since people had found out I learning to use a sewing machine they had suggested I just resize it.

*just* resize it

I found a great tutorial online by GlamourZen, and today was the day I bit the bullet.

I wish I had taken before pictures of my Voltron t-shirt so you can appreciate the massive change made. It’s not perfect. I actually made it too small, especially across my chest, but I am planning to lose weight. I know for next time to cut my t-shirt a bit larger allow for my clumsy seams!

Latest art: Wildcat

Portrait of a wildcat on a decorative background.

I’ve finished my latest painting! This was a revisit of an older drawing of mine, which gave me the opportunity to experiment with materials. She was much fun to paint!

She represents the divine feminine; untamable and mysterious. Sadly, wildcats are all but extinct in Scotland.

Mixed media on 12 x 16 inch canvas.

For sale: £65.
The original painting, along with prints and greetings cards, can be purchased from Made Zero, Dumbarton.

If you can’t make it to Dumbarton, prints and products available in my RedBubble store.
