I am very happy to be doing some drawings for Bridget from ARCA who specialises in producing stands and shelters in which to display and protect precious documents and books. These drawings are to go on her website to demonstrate what she does.

This is what is called a book cradle, a precious book can lay gently and safely open on this for people to see.

The more I do, the better I’m getting at the precise drawing that’s needed.

This is the finished drawing on her web page.

Recycled Note Book Covers

I am so pleased with my new product, recycled notebook or sketch book covers.These have been re-cycled from the very fashionable and popular PVC advertising signs. Obviously these awful things are not biodegradable and so will sit in landfill for ever so I have come up with a practical use for them instead of throwing them away.

I hand paint the the lengths of PVC and then sew them into shape. Then this turns into what I think are very desirable book covers with pencil loops on the front 🙂 Keep a look out as these will be soon available on my Etsy shop


Just completed the ladybird as a finished work. She’s in my latest colouring book so that you can colour her in yourself and she will soon be available completed as a print and a greetings card! 🙂
