Meet the Queen of Pyrography

Well on Twitter at least 🙂 I finally got myself together and got back on Twitter recently. My poor neglected account had been receiving my Facebook posts but not an awful lot more. In my ‘other’ job as The Web Sprite (and my own web and social media help) I decided to implement a system to help me get back into Tweeting. Anyway, These #Queenof and #Kingof awards by www.theroyalconnection.co.uk  have taken Twitter by storm.  Inspired by the Queen’s Jubilee, Dylan Moore, CEO of the Aqua Design Group decided to start a #QueenOf day on Twitter which was run every Thursday from 9am to 9pm. These awards, and are awarded to women and men in business who manage inspirational and customer focused small businesses in the UK.   I have been creating Pyrography Art for over 20 years but I trained as an illustrator and Graphic Designer so it’s not the only thing I do but it is one of the things I love the best, so you can imagine that I was delighted to be award the #QueenOf Pyrography accolade by #TheRoyalConnection. I’m very excited to be a part of this group and look forward to connecting with all the other Kings and Queens of the Twitterverse 🙂...

Barn Owl Artwork

for Owl Transporter Box I was asked by Mr P of  I4Wood to provide some art work for the front door of an Owl Transporter Box that he was making to commission. I had no photo reference of the actual bird in question so treated it like any other project. Reference first and then pencil sketches to work out the layout of the piece.  I’d been given the panel which was marked out according to where the hinges and bolt would be going and left to ‘get on’ with it. The gallery below shows the work as it progressed and also the finished artwork on the completed Owl Transport Box. [Show slideshow] For information on the box and other fabulous wooden things, pop over to I 4 Wood If you want to keep up with my work then pop over to Facebook and give my page a like so that you’ll see the new blogs/artwork as it’s posted....
