Oh the excitement! I’ve gotten my little pamphlet info things printed, greeting cards in stock and all the artwork up and ready for viewing at The Waterloo Teahouse from July 28- Sept 1, 2014.
The art gallery opening is in two days on Fri, Aug 1 from 6:30-8:30pm so if you’re in Cardiff, make sure to drop by to see my creations and of course meet me in person!
The subject of my illustration collection is called 'Snippet of Cardiff', and it will reflect my last year and a half in Cardiff, Wales. I aim to capture; the funny colloquialisms, British slangs, sceneries, the oh-so delicious foods, and life lessons learnt in this beautiful county I now call, home.
I’m super nervous yet excited, as this my first ‘art gallery show’. There’s something kind of gnarly about people coming to see you work, all the attention on you alone! It’s a little different online, but maybe I’m just being a drama queen. Waterloo Teahouse has fantastic teas also, so you can also grab a cuppa when you drop by!
Opening details: This Friday, Aug 1, 2014 at 6:30- 8:30pm, Waterloo Teahouse, 5 Waterloo Gardens, Penylan, Cardiff, CF23 5AA
Trying to contain the excitement till Friday!
Go pick up an Image Interiors and Living Magazine, If you’re in Ireland because you’ll find my illustrations in it alongside the lovely article, D.I.Y. if you dare written by Tanya Sweeney. (The featured illustrations are in the below post!)
If you’re into quality interiors and are ready to be envious of all the furniture and homes Image Interiors and Living Magazine is definitely the type of magazine for you. It’s pages are graced with the most beautiful ideas and ways to make your home that much more exquisite.
Thanks to the lovely editor Nathalie Marquez Courtney for having me on this month’s magazine, which also happens to be her very first issues as an editor!
I can not get enough of this brush stroke, messy stripes trend. I just love the simplicity and beauty of it’s organic form. In the above photos, though each substance is different, the brush stroke just embodies every one of them so gracefully.

At the beginning of this year I set out a goal to stretch myself with my illustrations, and coming up next month, I’ll be having my very first illustration exhibition at Waterloo Teahouse. I’m super nervous, kind of excited all at once. I would say that illustrating doesn’t come to naturally me- in the way that if I don’t have a client/deadline on my ass, I kind of just never produce anything. Where as when designing, it flows a lot easier for me. Did that make any sense?
I am currently prepping for my show that will be up at Waterloo Teahouse , 5 Waterloo Gardens, Cardiff, from July 28- Sept 1, 2014.

Do drop in if you’re in Cardiff on Fri, Aug 1 for the gallery opening! I would love to see/meet you in person, and your support would mean endless amounts to me! My work is up for the whole month of August so make sure to drop by if you can’t make it for the opening. I’ll be sure update you all closer to date.
Here’s to getting out of our own comfort zones, and hopefully to a successful gallery! Shitting my pants.

Summer vibes, pool sides, and pastels are the way to enjoy summer at it’s best! I’m really feeling the orange, pink, and grlue hues in this week’s currently coveting. Sunglasses on, and off to the beach side!
