I’m auctioning my one-off artwork of the beautiful Hill Road in Clevedon at Christmas on eBay!
The auction for this unique piece of Somerset art ends at 6pm on Wednesday, December 15, 2021. Click for the link here.
I only released my illustration as a Christmas card a couple of weeks ago and after receiving so many lovely comments (thank you everyone!) I was inspired to create this unique, one-off piece in a similar style to how I did my Curzon tile back in 2019.
Details: 30cm x 40cm - portrait — mixed media print of digital illustration — on plywood backing — framed -- hand-painted textured details - signed on the back
I used a similar technique to decorate my tile for the Curzon Roof Appeal which sold at auction for an incredible £390.
After the end of the auction, I’ll either hand deliver to the winning bidder anywhere in the BS21 area or send it special, signed delivery elsewhere. And if you miss out, don’t worry, you can still buy my Clevedon-illustrated designs from my Etsy shop here.
Thanks again for all the support over this year!
One of my favourite projects to work on this year was a commissioned illustration of Clevedon's Queen's Square for the Clevedon Twilight Market.
The Clevedon Christmas Twilight Market is being held this Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 12noon to 7pm and will feature screenings from Clevedon's Curzon Cinema, which will be showing silent films and archive footage from the town.
See a reworked version of the illustration (which the market, Discover Clevedon, the Curzon and more have all shared on their social media pages!) encouraging people to shop local this Christmas below, and check out my illustrations of Clevedon which are for sale on my Etsy shop here. Also do get in touch if you'd like to commission a similar project!
I've just added a new design to my collection of Somerset-themed Christmas cards with this festive scene of the beautiful town of Somerton and its Market Square.
The same location also features on my 2022 Somerset calendar, of which I now only have a limited number left. I didn't want to order too many just in case I didn't sell them before the clock strikes 12 on December 31! Luckily, the response has been lovely!
The Somerton Christmas card (as shown in the picture below) is available to buy as single cards or packs of multiples from my Etsy shop here.
In the same shop, I've also got cards for sale featuring Bristol, Clevedon, Wells, Glastonbury and more. Do let me know if you'd like me to create a customised Christmas card for yourself or your business this year, following a project I'll be sharing more on soon.
The official switch-on of the Christmas lights in Clevedon town centre may have been postponed by Storm Arwen at the weekend, but they still switched the lights on and they are looking fantastic! Here are some photos I took around Clevedon Triangle on Saturday of the Clevedon Clock Tower, the "Merry Christmas Clevedon" sign which is in Clevedon's Queen's Square and the lovely lights on Clevedon Baptist Church. I've also posted a few pictures from the Clevedon Alexandra Gardens lights display on my blog and if you'd like to buy any of my illustrations of Clevedon for gifts, stocking fillers, etc.. then you can visit my Etsy shop here!
I'm excited to release a brand new Christmas card for 2021 of the beautiful shopping street of Hill Road in Clevedon, North Somerset!
Taking inspiration from my existing card featuring a festive Clevedon town centre and the iconic Curzon Cinema, I decided to change things up a little bit by designing a night-time scene, complete with some of the wonderful Christmas lights that are currently in the area. (see some of my pictures of the Light Up The Parks display on my blog here).
The card is available to buy on my Etsy shop here. For bulk orders or to stock in a shop, please email me via the contact form or on social media (Facebook and Instagram).
Clevedon’s Hill Road and Alexandra Road — and the Alexandra Gardens park and the Copse Park just by Clevedon Pier — have been lit up by beautiful lights this Christmas.
The crowdfunded Light Up The Parks display is switched on at dusk.
The Clevedon Christmas Market — in collaboration with The Sunday Market, Clevedon BID, Clevedon Town Council & Hill Road/Alexandra Road Traders — will take place from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday, December 9, 2021. All the details from the Discover Clevedon website here.
Here are some of my pictures of lights. And you can see some of my illustrations of Clevedon (including a brand new image of Hill Road) here.

There is a beautiful Christmas lights display in Alexandra Gardens in Clevedon at the moment!
Funded by Clevedon businesses, the Clevedon BID has put up some beautiful lights in the park between the two independent shopping streets of Alexandra Road and Hill Road to make it look like an enchanted forest at night.
They are switched on at 3pm every night and there are also other lights on Hill Road and Alexandra Road. The park itself is a beautiful place to visit in the day too as dozens of squirrels charge around, up and down the trees.
It's also just a short walk from the seafront and Clevedon Pier.
Here are some of my pictures of the Clevedon Christmas lights (you can click on each picture to see my designs of Clevedon too):
And the Discover Clevedon post on Instagram about the lights too:
Eco-Friendly, Handmade Christmas Gifts, Stocking Fillers: Cushions, Napkins, Tea Towels, Lavender Bags
Did you know? I've also created a limited range of eco-friendly, hand-made cushion covers, napkins, tea towels and lavender bags with my designs on.
They are made from recycled polyester and organic cotton, highlight animals that are at risk of extinction and make great environmentally-conscious Christmas gifts and stocking fillers!
SCROLL DOWN TO SEE A SAMPLE OF THE ECO-FRIENDLY CHRISTMAS GIFTS.
There's my Paradise collection -- featuring orang-utans, Sumatran tigers, green peacocks and clouded leopards. And my British insects collection -- featuring bumblebees, the Chalkhill blue butterfly, the silver skipper spotted moth and the swallowtail butterfly.
I sourced the recycled fabrics from a UK company and the covers, napkins and tea towels were put together by a local Clevedon-based seamstress. The lavender bags were created from offcuts from the other products, meaning none of the fabric I bought went to waste.
This is a limited edition range that I'm really proud of -- once they are gone, they are gone! -- and think they make the perfect eco-friendly Christmas stocking stuffers!
Visit my Etsy store to see the products. I've also sold the patterns as rolls of fabric, and they can be adapted to any other product too (such as adult and child matching aprons, wallpaper, mugs, etc..). My vector illustrations can be scaled up to any size (I've recently created some bespoke wall art for a client). So if that's something you'd be interested in, then please get in touch through the contact page.
