'First Class Cats' & 'Feline Frippery'
limited edition framed print series

When Washington Green Fine Arts was formed in the UK in 1985 I was one of two artists whose work they chose to launch the company. Since then over 100 of my paintings have been published as limited edition prints and are sold all over the world, often selling out within weeks of publication.
My style is instantly recognisable and many of my prints have become highly sought after as collectors' items.


'A Tale of Two Kitties' book

I've illustrated four books; "The Cats Wedding"; "Three Little Kittens"; "Gourmet Cats", published by Michael O'Mara, and most recently "A Tale of Two Kitties", published by Pavilion Books, which tells of a humorous journey around the world by two cats looking for their Aunt Rose. Pressed flowers, old faded letters and photographs feature in their journal.

Three Little Kittens ISBN 1-85479-051-X 
Gourmet Cats  ISBN 1-854791427
A Tale of Two Kitties ISBN 1-86205-422-3

Bespoke design and illustration

As a designer, creator and illustrator, I am continually making. I have no choice! I offer a bespoke range of personal accessories created for the individual including hand stitched and painted handbags, cushions, scarves and exquisite jewellery made from old brooches, beads and fabric and weird and wonderful insects in cases that look as if they were found and displayed by a Victorian collector!

I can create a complete room set including wall panels, hand painted fabrics, illustration and paintings, or perhaps a detailed concept for a handmade wedding, vintage tea party or themed dinner. I also work with designers to create sets for photoshoots. Anything is possible.
