Happy Christmas !

Christmas barge I had such fun designing our Christmas card this year. We live not far from the Rhein river in Germany - and it's a great place for day trips and to take visitors - the Rheingau region produces some really fantastic wine and the river is dotted with castles and picturesque villages and steep vineyards and forests on the banks. Anyway - every time we go we see huge barges travelling down the river weighed down with containers - I always wonder what they contain ! So this year I designed a Christmas barge which is carrying some of my favourite Christmas essentials.

Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and Best wishes for 2015 !


This week I am on holiday in Corsica, it's just beautiful. Steeply forested hills and mountains and gorgeous beaches and crystal clear water. I have had a lot of fun sketching with pens, watercolour pencils and pastels, and being away from the computer has been refreshing. Here are a few of the sketches - you may already have seen some of them on instagram if you follow me there...Photo 05-10-14 10 52 55Photo 06-10-14 23 23 51 Photo 07-10-14 18 02 43Photo 06-10-14 09 56 26Photo 08-10-14 15 54 29Photo 05-10-14 17 58 29
