"Purple Lotus"

This morning I finished up a new "Purple Lotus" painting I've been working on over the weekend.

I've popped the original painting up in my store HERE.

There are also 8x10" art prints of her available HERE.

I've just had the urge to paint flower after flower after flower lately, and I had saved some really beautiful pics of purple lotus flowers on my computer, so I decided to put them in a painting. They have a really nice meaning also. They are born in muddy water, yet they bloom to be so pure looking and beautiful - giving them a sense of hope and rebirth.

The purples and pinks in this painting really pop!

My mini paintings are proving popular in the eBay store, so I might work on a couple more of them today. If you're after another original painting or a print though, I suggest you buy it through because you will get FREE SHIPPING Worldwide.

I hope your Mondayitis isn't too severe today! ;)

FREE 'TO DO' LIST! (Printable)

There can be so much in front of me some days that I feel completely overwhelmed. One of the ways I overcome this is to have a 'to-do' list in front of me, so that I can get everything down on paper and tick things off as I do them. Ticking that box is SO satisfying. I even write every day things down like "pick kids up from school' and 'make dinner' - just so I can have the pleasure of ticking them off the list.
Most days I will scribble out a rough list on scrap paper, but if you are a stationery freak like me, you will appreciate a 'pretty' list.

So today I designed a FREE 'TO DO' LIST for you to print out and get organized!

I would love to know if you find it helpful!

This week I've been working on some mini 6x6" paintings. I've decided to put them all up on eBay starting at $1, so everyone is in with a chance. Click on each one to go to it's auction. 

If you're after something bigger, I also have a few original paintings available HERE. They are free to ship Worldwide, as is everything in my web shop right now.
If there's a painting that you love, but it's a little bit out of your price range, I would be happy to consider an offer from you. Don't worry about offending me with a price, I would love to have my paintings out of my studio and on your walls. That's why I paint them. Just email me with an offer and which painting you are after. :)

I hope you're having a great weekend!

Much love and paint,

Mini paintings!

I've been busy painting mini (6x6") paintings this week. I love them because as soon as I get an idea, I can paint while the kids are asleep at night, and they don't take days/weeks to do - probably about 4-5 hours each? As I stack them around my desk I feel like lots of little fairies are popping up in my studio.

They each have a personality of their own, and they look like they're sneakily popping their head into the frame.
"Daisies In Her Hair"
"Little Bluebell Fairy"
"Fairy Stars"
"Fairy Lucky"

 As I've been painting them, I've been popping them up for auction on eBay, starting at $1 each - so you can decide how much you want to pay for them!

Speaking of which - ALL of my available original paintings are up for negotiation. If there's one that you love, but it's a little out of your price range, don't hesitate to email me at and make me an offer, I promise I won't be offended by a price. I want my paintings on your wall, not sitting around my studio collecting dust*. (*fairy dust)

I hope you're having a nice week. If you're not, just remember what my Grandma always told me:

"Wednesday breaks the week's back" (click to tweet this!)

Happy Friday the 13th!

Is Black Friday lucky or unlucky for you?
For generations it's been lucky for my family. Thank goodness - because today is the first of two in a row! It's Friday the 13th next month as well! :)

On Tuesday I managed to finish my "Moon Phase Angel" painting. If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen me working on this one for the past couple of weeks.

 I've put the original painting up on eBay starting at $100

There are also glossy paper prints of her available HERE.

After doing a couple of bigger paintings in a row, I wanted to do a few little ones - so I've started on some 6x6" canvasses, and I really like how they're turning out. The first one this week is "Little Bluebell Fairy", who I put up on eBay starting at just $1.

Today was mainly spent packaging art print orders and ordering stock, so I'm looking forward to putting brush to canvas tonight. I also want to wish my late Grandad a happy birthday. He would have been 87 today.

Wishing you a magical weekend!

"Flutters of Pink" and "Deep Sea Mermaid"

I finished my "Flutters of Pink" painting!

The original has already sold, however there are 8x10" prints of her available (with FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING). 

This week I've been busy working on a new painting called "Deep Sea Mermaid". I had an idea for a gothic style mermaid with a creepy cute feel. I love deep sea creatures, so I wanted to add some scary angler fish in, and of course an octopus.

If you look closely, you can see the background is made up of hundreds of tiny dots and rain drops...

I've popped the original painting up for auction starting at $1! It's quite a big painting at 12"x24". You can go to the AUCTION HERE.

It's very HOT here today in Brisbane, Australia. Hubby's taking the kids to the pool, and hopefully I'll be spending the afternoon with a cool drink and paintbrush in hand!
