Introducing the Twin Personalised Animal Alphabet Poster

Introducing the Twin Personalised Animal Alphabet Poster

A dear client contacted me recently with the news that a very close friend of hers is expecting twins. As a big fan of my South African Animal Alphabet, she was hoping to gift them a personalised poster. But what letter to use? "T is for twins"? We decided to mull it over for a while...As with many of my creative ideas, I woke up one morning with the answer (thank you subconscious!): My alphabet posters need to be more inclusive. And so, the Twin Personalised Animal Alphabet Poster was born. Not only a perfect gift for double-trouble-siblings, but also...

Introducing: Wooden Animal Masks

I am thrilled to share a new project with you that I am suuuuuper excited about: Wooden Animal Masks. A celebration of South Africa's unique wildlife, these modern wall art masks will look stunning in any indoor space! They are truly a labour of love - a collaboration between myself and my amazing husband, Alex, from The Modest Toolbox. It started many months ago as a few quick sketches and a vague idea...

These pieces are then used as stencils to create the pallet wood pieces that the masks are...

What is a "fine art print"?

What is a "fine art print"?

These are not just prints. My originals are scanned at the very highest quality (1.5 billlllllllion pixels, to be exact!) to capture the exact detail and depth. The scans are then professionally edited to match the colour of the original painting/drawing. Then, the high-res images are printed on 330 gsm, acid free,100% cotton rag, hot press paper. The result is museum-quality fine art prints, crafted to last a lifetime.What's more, my prints are all limited edition -- an exclusive run of only 20 or 50 per artwork will ever be available world-wide. Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity and is hand-signed...

Colour me happy: Hare Salon

Colour me happy: Hare Salon

After completing my first two colouring pages during lockdown, I've been considering a variety of ideas for the third. At the same time, I've been plagued with a heavy-hearted empathy for my fellow entrepreneurs and small businesses in SA that have been hard hit by Covid. Having a very close, long-standing relationship with my hometown hairdresser, I was especially confused by the decision to keep the beauty industry closed at this late stage in our lockdown.
