work in progress on a woodland painting

The bears are coming to Folksy. A range of prints and Greeting cards of my merry band of bears getting up to all sorts of antics will shortly be appearing on Folksy. These bears became a firm favourite of mine when I created a private book commission in September 2013. I missed drawing them. After I was asked to create some cards with these playful characters I could not resist bringing them out to play again and sharing then with you all. Watch this space as I other bears join Hazel who loves to put her feet up on her Cath Kidston chair with a cuppa and her knitting by her side.

Yes Yes I know the summer holidays are not even over yet……………..But I started my Christmas handpaintined Decorations today.

A little something about me in a montage of images. 

I started painting again at the beginning of 2011 when I needed something to take my mind off morning sickness. 

My daughter was born in June 2011 and so I named by budding art career after her Zuleikha.

I am turning these beautiful winged creatures into greeting cards.
