FIRST WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT- oh the places we've been!

This is an A3 commission I was asked to do by my lovely Step Dad for my Mum to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
They had a rather fabulous year, managing to clock up a pretty long list of lovely places visited. I was asked to include all of them in one large piece. I am very happy to say I fit them all in, and managed to sneakily put them in order. 
This is one of my favourite commissions, it was challenging, but so fun to do, and I get to see it framed on the wall whenever I visit, I'm sure for many years to come! (Thank goodness it wasn't a house plant, or that poor sod would be long gone :) Love you Mum!)

 This is an A4 commission given as a wedding gift to a lucky couple getting married at Byron Bay. I was given a list of things to include which were important to them, my favourite being the bikes by the lemon tree.

This is an A5 paper cut commission, the customer wanted a simple yet thoughtful gift for her friend's 50th birthday. She asked me to include the cherished friend's family, their dog, and a few of her passions. I got one of my favourite responses to the initial design sketch when I was told to "make her hair even bigger and even bushier" I knew at this point, these were my kind of people.

Snowy Golden Wedding Anniversary Gift...

 On this cold and cosy day, I thought it would be nice to share a snowy commission I made a while ago. This is an A4 paper cut commissioned to give as a gift for a parents golden wedding anniversary, in gold of course. It includes the church they married in, a representation of the happy couple and their cake on the day, a few special places and some gorgeous little pigs! Not forgetting the snow to make the day complete.
Please forgive the photos, it is very hard to photograph shiny gold!

If you are interested in a commission please email me at to have a chatty about it.

BE IN LOVE WITH YOUR LIFE paper cut commission...

This was an incredibly difficult, but very special commission.

A lovely lady contacted me, as a group of friends wanted to cheer up another friend who was ill. They gave me a fantastically long list of the many things she loved, and the wonderful quote which instantly struck a chord with me.

However, I soon came to realise that the cut wasn't just for the friend, but for her young family to cherish in the future. When drawing the initial design, I received the devastating news that their friend had passed away. Whilst I was so shaken by how unfair this was for her family and friends, everything in the piece was so full of life, I had to see it as a celebration of such a happy life.

I have never worked on anything so important before. I wanted to bring some sort of joy to the family, even if it couldn't now, then maybe when it was looked at in the future.

This was such a humbling reminder for me, that life can be so fleeting, we shouldn't take anything for granted, especially those wonderful people we have around us. So please, be in love with your life, every minute of it.
