These little fellows have a little story of their own. After rescuing from being lost forever in a skip. I brought them back to life and created my little mexio cactus using eco friendly earthenware clay and fired into biscuit before hand painting them and being glazed. They come as a pair and ideally stick together which you can share with your best friend. Each one is hand painted with its own characteristic face. If you would like my pair of cacti and add to your collection of wierd and wonderful things then you can purchase from my etsy shop or email me.

Its the season for weddings and we all know someone that is getting married this summer. I have hand decorated these heart trinket boxes with 'Mrs & Mr'. An ironic twist on the saying mr and mrs meaning the woman wears the trousers. I can also offer personalied messages and intials of the happy couple and even the date. A lovely keep sake for the day that the couple to keep their rings in or sentimental items from the day. Also personalised idea for the bridesmaids with their individual names on to thank them for being part of the special day. They are available to purchase and order from my etsy shop.

Being a big softie for animals big and small, I always support the animal charities and the work they do to look after the abandoned furries. I have even been commissioned to paint portraits of pets as a keepsake. I was given an opportunity to take part in a charity event held by the RSPCA in Derby called Bark in the Park at Marketon park. It was a great event and I got to see all the lovely dogs attending with their owners. Having got together my display for the day, I thought I would take the opportunity to showcase other wares that included illustrated ceramic pet bowls.
It was lovely meeting everyone that stopped by my stall and hope you enjoyed the day. If you stopped by the stall and was interested in having a pet portrait or even an illustrated or personalised pet bowl drop me a message for all commissions.
