Grace’s Secret

Design, Illustration

Here are some examples from the set of 21 images I recently completed for a children’s book, which will be published at the end of 2014. The client for this project is Roshni, a charity dedicated to working with children, young people and vulnerable adults within minority ethnic communities across Scotland.

The book is one of a series of nine, with each focusing on a different issue that would normally be difficult to discuss with young children. The subject of this particular book is neglect. The project was a collaborative effort with the charity, as I was provided the text for the story and given backgrounds for each of the characters.

This was a challenge for me because of the serious subject matter, but I’m really excited to see the finished article, and also the other eight books!

Hello, Glasgow!

Illustration, Small business

I’m really pleased to confirm that I’ll be selling and showing my work at the Art Fusion/ Gibson Street Gala event in Glasgow again this year. The last event was my first attempt at selling my work, and the great reception I received both from the other sellers and customers gave me the confidence to carry on and pursue my own little business.

I’ve got my fingers crossed for another successful day of selling, and also for some sunshine!

If you’re in the neighbourhood on 2 June, please drop by and say hello.
