I'm 23 and a self-taught artist, and while I love working with most mediums and I do tend to mix a few to get the right look to my art, but watercolours really are my favorite and so very versatile! I love drawing animals (especially horses! Foxes come in second) in both a realistic and my own style. Oh, and a another thing which you you will find quite prominently in my art lately is stars! I have become quite obsessed with the night sky! :D

I do take commissions (mostly pet portraits) so if you are interested please send me a note :) <3

Keeper of Lost Dreams
Anyone remember this guy from 2015? :wow: :faint: 
fav.me/d8fx0ar the 2nd deviation that I ever submitted here and I was ever so proud of it, even the very clever (if not totally blatant looking a it now) trick of using his mane to conceal the fact that I could not get the neck right and I lacked much understanding of Anatomy.  I have had it displayed in my bookcase ever since... Until last week when I was searching for some comfort reading the the pages of Diana Wynne Jones and for the first time in quite a while I actually noticed it... I was instantly seized by my Muse's insistence that it was The Keeper's time to be drawn again. He is such a interesting character that I am bemused that I haven't done it earlier.

I wasn't sure what I was expecting to happen when I sat down staring at blank paper... Then this happened! Honestly I am blown away by the result, this feels like such a grown up piece for me and an tribute to the original.
It feels good to actually see and feel the growth in my work and see how far I have come and it is very humbling and inspiring for me to recognise that. 
I am so in love with his mane (yeah... I'm showing off somewhat, but hey I finally worked out how to do effortless looking mane swirls! ;)) :love:

I strongly suspect that this is more of the image that my younger self would have liked to create when she first dreamed up the Keeper of Lost Dreams.

So here's to inspiration, mercurial Muses, new growth and learning and to all my amazing followers and 
your own creative endeavours! And the amazing artists who continue to inspire and help me improve! Thank you all!(Cheers!) Emoticon

Kit
A gift for my Mom of her gorgeous and haughty cat Kit.
This was such good fur practice and I am so proud of how it turned out! Lots of fine brush work though ;P 

Let me know what you think!

Want a really cute FREEBIE??

Hello dear Friends!
Sorry I have been absent a bit on here, finding time lately has been a struggle.. I never thought that I would't never have time for dA! :O :faint: What is happening to me??? Why is it the more you grow up the less time you seem to have? They sell growing up as being so awesome, but honestly it sucks a little sometimes... Flash - Icon 

Anyway, I digress! 
Today I wanted to let you know (if you are interested!) about a project I have been working on which is maintaining my blog/website and cultivating a inner circle (AKA I have a mailing list now and I am actually consistent with it and I would LOVE you to come and join it!) 
If you'd like to hear and see my art more regularly, need more heartwarming stories in your life and are an animal lover this is definitely the place to be! I even periodically run giveaways!  

AND I have turned this adorable little moonfox, Titania, into a Freebie pdf printable bookmark for EVERYONE who signs up!

If you'd like her to guard the page of your favorite book (love to hear in the comments below what that book is! Or your current favourite book!) Come join meFox emoji - hearts

Tears of Golden Flight
A concept sketch for this has been in my ideas book for AGES but I just could not get it right! ...Until the other night when I was struck by a very violent and insistent Muse that it had to be done! Scared Nick Icon :squee: I actually worked on three different paintings in between waiting for paint to dry, this kind of productiveness has been relatively unseen in my studio for the past couple of months so I am quite thrilled and hoping that she (my Muse) sticks around a bit longer... I can hope? 
I believe this was somewhat inspired by Wan Shi Tong- he who knows ten thousand things, from Avatar: The Last Airbender Owly

Daily Doodle: Black Dog
I have started doing one animal doodle a day (currently got extra hours at my job and this is making me feel slightly more productive, and the best thing is I get to choose if I feel like doing it in my style or realistic style! ;) (Wink)

What do you think? Like to see more? Feel free to suggest an animal for tomorrows doodle :D (Big Grin)

And What makes these so special is that the brown paper is off cuts from work that would normally go in the bin, so I'm really happy that I can recycle it into something beautiful! ❤️

Enjoy! 
Have a great day!
