” Some of the most creative ideas emerge from a swirl of chaos” (Anon.).


Or in this case a saddle. Yep a saddle. 

This is the original which was taken at a clearing sale on my iPhone 5s. I loved the contrast of textures between the stirrup leathers and saddle flap and the pattern in the design. 

I edited it using iColorama App with a sketch style and tunnel form presets.

It’s an orange kind of day

Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do. 

~ Rumi

From flowers to sunsets to birds and creative pursuits today is an orange kind of day. At least, I’d like to share some of my favourite orange images and digital artworks from my Project Orange Gallery to brighten and inspire your day.

King Parrot #1




The Original image was of autumn leaves against the sky taken on my iPhone. I love playing with the artistic filters in the Enlight App to create Abstract effects.

Rachael or Rachel – there’s one for each.


A bright orange sunset the end to a perfect day.
Red sky at night; Shepherds delight

Red sky at morn; Shepherds take warn.

My love is like a rose…

My love is like a rose divided into two,

The leaves I give to others,

But the rose I give to you.

Love, Roses and rainbows

I love the beauty and romance of roses.

This pretty design is part of my ‘Hues of a rose’ collection.  The rose is avalaible in 9 colours with the red rose being the original.

I have begun creating a range of striped roses to compliment the originals and they are available on a variety of products including duvet covers, wearable art, throw pillows, totes, device covers, art prints, totes, gift cards and more.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers…


This is such a pretty quote by Emily Dickinson.  I firmly believe that we should always have hope for as the old saying goes – “without hope, there is nothing”.





There are flowers for those who want to see them.

This beautiful quote by Henri Matisse was the inspiration for a recent Name Art commission for a friends daughter and it worked perfectly with my image of this pretty dahlia flower.


I wanted to create something soft and dreamy for a young girl who is full of wonder, discovering the world and the beauty around her.


My friend wanted a pretty studio pouch for her daughter to put her hand sanitisers and lip balms in, in her school bag.  Something that didn’t look like a cosmetic purse.  My studio pouches are perfect for this.  They come in two great sizes (small 23cm x 15cm and large 30.5cm x 20.5cm) and great for keeping pencils in, art supplies, cosmetics, camera accessories and anything you please. Made from 100% Polyester
