Plenty of beautiful things from lately. Grace and the Heart adventures with my besties, sneak peek at a fashion photoshoot I just shot for my friends final collection (more on that real soon!), and lots of things to spend days in the sun thinking about. How great is the ‘a beautiful mess’ app for photos?! And how beautiful is my little god daughter to be?! Despite a lot of changes lately, I like finding myself again in amongst everything that happened this year. And I like finding that I’ve learnt a thing or two. Now that can’t hurt.
Introducing my new room. It’s finally all done and dusted! I’m so in love with it and the way I feel more like myself there now. It’s a step in the right direction of changes I want to make to my life. There has come this time where I feel that everything good and artistic and romantic that I hold dear has to start to have a place. I spend so much of my time on these beautiful ideals and notions of love that it becomes difficult to find perspective. So my new room is the place for these things, and on here of course. Now that I have my workspace back expect lots of new drawings coming soon!
Introducing today Lozwold! Otherwise known as Lauren.
Not only is she one of my best friends, but also my business partner and a constant inspiration to me. Shes the most fun and stylish person I know and there are simply no words to say how much I love her.
Lately shes not only been modelling for me on some top secret photoshoots (and been illustrated too!) but shes started up her own fashion blog! I thought I’d share some of her beauty on here and ask you all to fall in love with her too and follow her adventures at: http://lozwold.wordpress.com/
Time and time again I come back to the Great Gatsby for inspiration. It all started a few years ago when I read the book after hearing that Carey Mulligan was going to be playing Daisy. Then I painted this…
This has proved to be one of my most successful pieces to date in the shop. The original sits on my desk right by my side as I work, and serves to remind me what a turning point it made for my art. There’s something about her and her expression that I just connect with.
So for now here’s a quick painting from the trailer! And although I now have to wait until 2013 to see this film, these beautiful images will keep me inspired!
PS… Hope you all like my blog’s little makeover! <3

Earlier last year I was introduced to the beautiful sounds of Birdy. I constantly listen to her album whilst creating my art work, and her own lyrics as well as those from her album of covers always inspire me.
