Beautiful Trees


My latest new paintings have definitely been inspired by the lovely spring trees that are around at the moment.

I've been having fun playing with inks on paper making beautiful textures.

I love the colours but I wasn't happy with the composition. It somehow didn't seem right....

....so I turned the painting upside down!
 and drew a lady wearing a beautiful dress of branches.

I call her 'Blossom in the Wind'. 
She's searching for a new home so if you think you might be able to help her, please click here.😊


I love how the little twinkles of light picks up the leaves of the trees and flowers.

This new painting that I've recently finished twinkles in the light too! I've used gold paint on the bird and the fern leaves. It's a mixed media painting on cradled wood panel. The leaves are dimensional, giving the surface extra interest.
I've called it 'Pink Flower in my Hair'. You can see more of this piece in my Etsy shop if you click here.😊



This is one that I'm currently working on using beautiful green inks and it's soon to be listed in my shop. Please message me if you'd like a chance to buy it before it goes live.

Thankyou so much for visiting today, I hope you have a fantastic week ahead.xx
