Dribble Drabble

Quite frankly I am not in the right state of mind to be writing this, as I have been talking in an online chat to a certain company for about two hours with no end result to the situation they put me in. I am so angry that my hands still feel the need to be typing, like when you are holding back verbally in an argument, and then when you are alone you start screaming and lashing out.

Anyway, back to the reason I am here, and you are reading: what have I been up to this month? Or rather, last TWO months, as I missed both January and February posts. I am so forgetful that this blog may become bi-monthly instead. I tend to keep my other social media sites more updated anyway, so if you want that, then feel free to follow them too!

I cannot remember if I told you of my recent university project, but it involves making lampshades out of felt. It is still in progress, but you can at least see the experiments here on the YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBx93-IVr38YuFGBcDoKOEg

Also I plan to open the online shop a few months early, and have been planning the products. So far is this adorable little ring of a ladybug!


Obviously not just this singular one, more will be made. And finally I have been practicing landscape and portraiture. I want to use coloured pencils, watercolour and crosshatching more in my art, still doing needle and wet felt art too. I could even draw something and then felt it afterwards. Same picture, two different styles of medium.

Keep an eye out for the next post! (I’ll do one at the end of March to make up for the lack of Jan-Feb posts.) Thank you all who do read my updates, as drab as they are. Until next time, bye!

YouTube Channel

Starting my YouTube channel with a video of the squirrels in Singleton Park today. Don’t worry, it won’t all be videos of squirrels, I plan to start recording my work progress of needle felting with my snazzy new camera! Woo! Keep an eye out for it, in the meanwhile, here is that squirrel video!

Self Portrait for Exhibition Catalogue


Needle felted self portrait to be used for the catalogue for the exhibition coming up in a few months. This took approximately four hours to do, and I may start taking commisions for portraits. Keep watching!

Fairy Doll


Watercolour, watercolour pencils and coloured pencils. Oh, and a downlight filter.
Painting of the china fairy doll upon my windowsill.

Getting Old

Hello, World!

This week has been on-and-off productive, and full of coughs. Hopefully I shall get back into picking up the pencil or knitting needles.

Being 21 this Friday makes me realise I have been alive for 21 years, and I haven’t done anything successful.

So if what little motivation I had before was not enough, turning 21 will be. It has been 15 days since new years resolutions were made (and a day later broke) but I can still make one now.




…..Let us hope these words stick!

Stay arty!

Hooded Figure

Thought it would be a change to do some photo editing… it took a long time but it looks effective : )

Original hooded figure with teeth and eyes around the edge = teeth and eye removed from hood = effects added and a background.

Self-Portrait 1

Self-portrait, and the media used I shall not reveal : P hehehe. It’s not what you paint with usually.

It’s not completely finished as I missed the eyelashes and the nose is too long.
