Happy Memory-A-Day: Winter | Over Christmas, when we went up to see Mr R's parents, they took us to a National Trust site, Wallington. Walking through the grounds and seeing all the bare branches of trees clustered together, passing rivers and streams, a true breath of fresh air and tranquility. And the inspiration for my Woodlands painting. ___ #southislandart #botanicalillustration #botanicalart #botanicaldreamers #inspiredbynature #artandnature #allthingsbotanical #botanicalpickmeup @girlabout.travel #SharingAmazingMemories #girlabouttravel #photochallenge2020 #breathefreshair #northumberland #loveneengland #thisprettyengland #scenicbritain #northeastengland #inspiredbytravel #artlover #artdecor #gallerywalldecor #interiordesignart #colourmyhome #decorinspo #artforyourwalls #smallbizsquad #smallindiebusiness #smallandmightybusiness #indiebiz #prettycreativelife

Happy Memory A Day - Another Continent | Another favourite moment from our photobooks that inspired this print. A beautifully sunny day spent at Melbourne's Royal Botanic Garden. So incredibly peaceful, we would walk and sit, walk and sit, such a huge area to explore. We sat ourselves on a bench by the lake, hardly another person around, and then this little boat drifted into view. It was so idyllic!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Royal Botanic Garden are sharing lots on their Instagram channel @royalbotanicgardensvic if you fancy having a virtual look for a dose of gorgeous nature.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ___ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #southislandart @girlabout.travel #SharingAmazingMemories #girlabouttravel #photochallenge2020 #breathefreshair #botanicalillustration #botanicalart #botanicaldreamers #inspiredbynature #artandnature #allthingsbotanical #botanicalpickmeup #inspiredbytravel #artforyourwalls #colorcolourlovers #colourmakesmehappy #colourfulplaces #artprint #travelprints #landscapeart #travelstories #wallartprints #postcardplaces #momentsofmine #myfavouritespot #prettylittletrips #momentstoremember #travelmemories #preservingmemories #memoriesmade

Happy Memory A Day - Road trip | Last night we just sat and went through all our photo books with a glass or two of wine. One of my favourites we came across was this from our visit to Tenerife last year. We joined an excursion that went from the South of the island to El Teide and the North, and then back again. There were a lot of winding roads through the mountains, and I snapped this through the window - an amazing feeling of perspective to see the clouds below us with the dreamiest blue sky. ____ @girlabout.travel #SharingAmazingMemories #girlabouttravel #photochallenge2020 #breathefreshair #onepurlrowglow #travelfemme #postcardplaces #momentsofmine #myfavouritespot #prettylittletrips #thedreamytravels #momentstoremember #travelmemories #mytravelstory #mytraveldiary #preservingmemories #memoriesmade #colorcommunity #instacolour #lovecolour #designwithcolour #ihavethisthingwithcolour #howihue #colourconversation #colourlover #welovecolour #colourmakesmehappy #justbehue #hues #colourmylife

Small business support | So appreciative of so many who are doing everything that they can to help small businesses right now. Slowly been implementing some changes to my homepage with advice from the lovely Cat @craftyfoxmarket and Karolina of @studioestila. The Shopping With Soul and @estilamag networks provide so much - if you're a designer make, I highly recommend looking into both. And if you're interested in independent brands across interiors, art and fashion, Estila Magazine is just a joy to read.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #smallbizsquad #creativebusiness⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #creativelifehappylife⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #smallindiebusiness #smallandmightybusiness #modernmaker #designermaker #makerslife #indiebiz #prettycreativelife #homeinthestudio #londonillustrator #londonartist

New tools | Loving supplies from @cassart1984 that are keeping me going, using time at weekends to experiment a bit more. Trying out metallic paints, pearlescent effects, textures - will see where it all ends up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ___ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #southislandart #madetomatchyourhome #seasideliving⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coastlife #travelart #seascapes #landscapeart #abstractart #abstractpainting #contemporarypainting #modernabstract #inspiredbytravel #artlover #artdecor #gallerywalldecor #interiordesignart #eclecticallycool #colourmyhome #creativeliving #loveyourhome #decorinspo #artforyourwalls #smallbizsquad #creativelifehappylife #smallindiebusiness #smallandmightybusiness #shoppingwithsoul #designermaker #indiebiz #prettycreativelife

Dunes | I loved the name for this painting that @wheelchichome came up with - thank you Vicki! The scene is inspired by Alnmouth Bay up on the North East coast of England, a great expanse of beach against a backdrop of sand dunes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ___ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #southislandart #madetomatchyourhome #inspiredbytravel #moreismoredecor #brightboldhome #artlover #artdecor #gallerywalldecor #interiordesignart #colourmyhome #decorateyourwalls #northeastcoast #creativeliving⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lovethesea #decorinspo #artforyourwalls #seasideliving #coastlife #originalpainting #beachart⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #seascapes #travelart #landscapeart #smallbizsquad #justacard #creativelifehappylife #smallindiebusiness #smallandmightybusiness #smallbiz #prettycreativelife

Peaceful Skies | HUGE thank you to everyone who entered names for my two new paintings. The word 'peace' came up quite a bit with this one, and I loved 'Peaceful Skies' by @iamfranzipan. Thank you Francesca! Will share the winning name for the other painting tomorrow. Wishing you all a lovely Sunday, over here we're on a mega cleaning mission!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ___ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #southislandart #madetomatchyourhome #seasideliving⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coastlife #travelart #seascapes #landscapeart #abstractart #abstractpainting #contemporarypainting #modernabstract #inspiredbytravel #artlover #artdecor #gallerywalldecor #interiordesignart #eclecticallycool #colourmyhome #creativeliving #loveyourhome #decorinspo #artforyourwalls #smallbizsquad #creativelifehappylife #smallindiebusiness #smallandmightybusiness #shoppingwithsoul #designermaker #indiebiz #prettycreativelife

Soft Pinks | I have a fixation with using pink at the moment in my art. Sunrise pinks, warm pinks, ice cream pinks. Something soft and comforting. My favourite pink of the moment is @craigandrosepaints Alhambra Stone. It's the pot you see here and the colour of the second stripe on the front painting. Just enough warmth, not too peachy, I'm finding it such a restful colour.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ___⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #southislandart #lovecolour #designwithcolour #ihavethisthingwithcolour #howihue #colorcolourlovers #colourconversation #colourlover #welovecolour #colourmakesmehappy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #justbehue #paintinspiration⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #flatlaystyle #flatlayforever⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #paintcolours #colourfullife #becolourful #livecolourfully #colourmylife⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #madeinlondon⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #studioscenes #homeinthestudio #londonartist #londonillustrator #smallbizsquad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #creativelifehappylife⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #smallindiebusiness #smallandmightybusiness #indiebiz #prettycreativelife

* Competition now closed * A little bit of fun | Over the weekend, I read an email by Redbubble @redbubble CEO Martin Hosking that really resonated with me, about how art provides meaning, especially during times like this. It can soothe or express how we're feeling. It can be as simple as bringing a bit of joy or something pretty to brighten up a corner. - So I'm giving away two £25 vouchers to spend on my site. All you have to do is just help me come up with a name for these two paintings. Just comment below, or send me a DM and I'll pick my favourite name for each painting. The authors of the two winning names will each get a £25 voucher. - The voucher will be valid for 12 months, so no hurry to do anything with it, this is just for us to have some fun! This will be open until 11.59pm this Friday 27th (GMT) and then I will send the lucky winners a code to use. Open to all, send me as many names as you feel like. *Vouchers can't be exchanged for cash or credit, and change can't be given. They can be used on my Ready-made shop, customised art and bespoke commissions. International entries are welcome, just please note there may be delays with deliveries! *This is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by or associated with Instagram. Have fun! ___ #southislandart #madetomatchyourhome #inspiredbytravel #moreismoredecor #brightboldhome #artlover #artdecor #gallerywalldecor #interiordesignart #colourmyhome #decorateyourwalls #makehomeyours #creativeliving #loveyourhome #decorinspo #artforyourwalls #seasideliving #coastlife #originalpainting #beachart #seascapes #travelart #landscapeart #smallbizsquad #justacard #creativelifehappylife #smallindiebusiness #smallandmightybusiness #smallbiz #prettycreativelife

I love this because... | #mymonthincolour. Like a lot of people and small businesses on here, I'm not sure what to post or whether to continue posting. But then I think about the reasons I go on here - the community I get to be a part of and quite honestly, I'm looking for both distraction and normality. I saw this prompt on my month in colour, and well seeing as we're spending a lot of time indoors right now, there's a lot about our flat that I love. One of my favourite corners is this part of our living room. This side gets the light during the first half of the day and I love how the sun just warms it all up, bouncing off all those teal textures! Hoping there will be a bit more sunshine over the next few weeks.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #southislandart #madetomatchyourhome #inspiredbytravel #brightboldhome #artlover #artdecor #interiordesignart #eclecticallycool #colourmyhome #brightbolddecor #eclectichomemix #welltraveledhome #makehomeyours #creativeliving #shelfie #loveyourhome #decorinspo #artforyourwalls #colorcommunity #howihue #colorcolourlovers #colourmakesmehappy #colourfulplaces #colorventures #livecolourfully #colourmylife #travelprints #chryslerbuilding #wallartprints

Morning all, hope you're all ok and keeping safe and well. Painting at the moment during my lunch breaks which I find soothing and calming. This is how my paintings start out - usually with a very messy sketch! This is for one I'm working on now. Sometimes I test out colours on top of my sketch, sometimes I test directly on the canvas and paint, paint and paint until it feels right!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ___ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #southislandart #madetomatchyourhome #seasideliving⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coastlife #beachart #seascapes #landscapeart #smallbizsquad #heytheremaker #creativebusiness ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #creativelifehappylife #smallindiebusiness #smallandmightybusiness #smallbiz #indiebiz #prettycreativelife #madeinBritain #madeinlondon #studioscenes #homeinthestudio #flatlaystyle #flatlayforever #creativeprocess #onmydesk #londonillustrator #colorcommunity #ihavethisthingwithcolour #howihue #colorcolourlovers #myboldhues
