Store Up-date

If you follow me on instagram you’ll have seen a sneak peek at some of these babes from my Girl Gang print. Well I’m thrilled to show you the final finished art work. I can’t quite express how happy I am with how this turned out.

Dave said to me that it’s his favourite thing I’ve ever drawn and I’d have to agree with him. It was a labour of love but bloody hell it was worth it. Just look at it! I’ve added it to my Etsy store and the first 5 prints sold will receive a free 5″ bubble gum babe sticker for free as a little thank you.

The sticker on is also available to buy on its own and fear not, i have big plans to turn more of the babes from this collection into stickers. Just need to sell some stock first in-order to be able to produce more stock.

Now the main question is, which babe is your favourite? Each time I look at it I have a new fav babe. Let me know in the comments as I’d love to hear what you think & maybe your fav babe could be turned into a sticker!

Home Collection

Like I mentioned in my post about my self-care collection I’ve been working on building my illustration portfolio and I’m pleased to share my latest set of work the home edit. If you’ve been following me for a while you might recognise two of these have had a little make over and the rest are brand new. I like creating a colour palette for the collection and think it makes for a strong and cohesive body of work.

I pushed out of my comfort zone and branched out to draw a kitchen and a stair case. It was my first time giving both ago and I’m pleased with how they turned out. I do love drawing a big room scene and thinking up art and decor items to fill the room with. Out of curiosity, which room is your favourite?


While drawing these Dave asked me if i was trying to hint I wanted to. change up our living room. Now he knows its no secret to him that I’ve always wanted a velvet sofa & that green is my favourite colour so maybe in our next place I could take inspiration from these rooms.

I know I keep mentioning it but I set up an Etsy store and would love if you could check it out. I’m offering free 2nd class shipping for US customers and I’m more than happy to ship internationally and work out the price of shipping etc. I sell macrame coasters and Ive adding stickers and soon to be stocking Christmas cards too!

Little Polka-Dot Dress

Just casually posing outside fo this beaut mid-century home that isn’t mine, don’t worry it’s empty and up for sale. We discovered this beautiful street with the dreamiest mid-century bungalows lined with huge trees on one of our daily walks. Then on Sunday I’d put make up on as we were doing to our friends for dinner and I asked Dave if we could take some pictures to mark the occasion of actually wearing make up on and making a bit of an effort – something that is a rarity in these Covid days.

I’ve been growing out my fringe (bangs if your American) its just to warm in LA and windy here in Venice for a fringe. This is the first time in my entire life I’ve not had hair on my face and it feels good but looks odd, I’m not used to seeing my forehead in pictures. I’m also thinking about getting my hair chopped into a collar-bone length bob now the hair dressers are back open – well open to 25% capacity. I might get them to sort my fringe out too, I’m thinking Bridget Bardot style long bangs. What do we think?

Also you might be thinking, Amy not another new polka-dot dress. Well no actually, this is this dress but I changed the neckline. I loved the print (polka-dots & gingham are my favourite prints) but it was a size too big. On Saturday I grabbed my scissors cut a square neckline and opened up all the side seams taking some excess fabric away and re-sewed it all back together again. I kept it a little loose fitting as it’s still in the mid 30’s here, far too hot for a tight fitting dress! There is no sign of Autumn here in LA!

Also just to add, I did wear my face-mask while out and about I just took it off for my pictures. I need to invest in some pretty ones like these to match with my outfits!

Self-care Collection

Over the last few months I’ve been focusing on my illustrations and building my portfolio. This has in-tailed creating lots of new work and reworking older drawings that I loved but my skills have improved since I drew them. I had a look at my portfolio and worked out what I was missing and started from there. I’m looking to approach magazines and look for an agency to represent me with the hopes to turn this hobby into my full time career. Holla at your girl if you have any connections or would like to commission me for a custom piece.

I’m making mini collections and today I wanted to share my self-care theme. Which features the dreamiest, Pinterest worthy bathrooms. Just look at that pink and green colour palette. You might recognise some of these have had a refresh and I’m really pleased with how they’ve turned out. Mixed in some new designs and I am very happy with how this self-care collection looks. No doubt I will add to it as I seem to love drawing bathroom scenes.

Also just a shameless plug, I have an Etsy store and will be adding more prints and even Christmas cards that i can not wait to share with you! If there is any art you’d like me to turn into a print just drop me a massage and we can make it happen!
