Messengers of Spring flit from branch to branch, bud to bud, gathering nectar or building nests

Spring is such a positive time of year, filled with hope and the promise of warmer, brighter days to come. There’s still a nip in the air but the skies are less broody and the Spring rains nourish and refresh, rather than subdue. As the sun creeps above the horizon and the watery light thaws the soil, bees, butterflies, birds and Bluebells all stir from their winter slumber, as if yawning and stretching – unfurling – ready to meet the new day. Our thoughts turn to greens and blues and pretty bright tones as we wear colours that mimic our natural surrounds. When we are inspired by the flora and fauna around us, we can celebrate each new season with a renewed enthusiasm and optimism, knowing we are all part of the patterns, the cycles and the ebb and flow of life.

Every illustration – every creation is a work of art in its own right. I live in Australia at the moment – but these pieces keep me connected to my Scottish home – the changing seasons, the fauna and the amazing birdlife on our shores. I can’t choose a favourite. They are all so unique and so special.
