Full time artist and illustrator, specialising in realistic images in a range of mediums, but particularly favouring coloured pencils.
Oh My- I love them- beautiful beautiful beautiful. I know they’re doing the do (discreetly) and its all educational but this would look soooooo good framed up. Congrats on the book- will you be allowed to make prints & cards ?
You make me laugh Anita – so sweet!!! The contract from Macmillan states that they have full copyright so I have a feeling that pretty much means I can’t do anything with these images, but I was so happy to get the commission, I don’t mind :))
