Celebrating the Peony Rose


Peony by Paula Mills for Sweet William


Painted Peony by Paula Mills for Sweet William


My all time favourite flower is the Peony. When I see one, I have to stop and take it in. The volouptuouse form, the softness, the fullness, the delicate colours, the wonderfulness of these flowers! I am so taken by these flowers that I have tried to capture them on paper on quiet a few occasions and I think it is some thing I will keep on drawing. Here are some shots of a bunch of soft pink Peonies I had at home and two illustrations I have done, both available in our etsy shop as prints.

Simple black and white doodles






I love pattern and colour but I also love the simplicity of a black line on a white page. Here are some little sketches from my black and white folder. The home sweet home sketch is available as a print here

Happy Kites

Kites always make me smile - here are four pretty kites soaring above our heads. This print is available in our etsy shop.

New Prints now available in our etsy shop

'The Gift' by Paula Mills for Sweet William




This drawing entitled 'the gift' has been sitting with me for a while now. There is so much we do with our hands - touch, give, make, feel, comfort, reassure, communicate, work, applaud, our hands can be gifts. At last I managed to get the image down on to paper and now it is available to buy as a print from our Etsy shop. It is a fairly new colour palette for me but I am quite pleased with the way the fresh green has turned out. I also revisited 'earth laughs in flowers' with some pretty colours. Now available in our etsy shop here.
