Painting my Narrowboat: 1) the basecoat


I’ve been working on a new project of late- painting my home; a narrow boat called the Arctic Rose.

My partner and I have been painting the inside for a while now, but the biggest project has been the outside. We’ve waited for a warm but overcast day to get started, and we’d like to get her all done by the time the autumn really settles in.







Final colour! :





What a beautiful blank canvas she makes… 😉

Visit a floating shop this summer
Like Howls Moving Castle, this summer I'm turning my narrowboat into a nomadic shop! I'll be roaming the UK canal system selling my unabashedly femme illustrated giftware and prints.

Get on my mailing list for access to the shop's physical & online opening event including a special discount code for you to use both in person and online.

As well as my monthly behind the scenes content and updates from my illustration desk (that I only share by email), you'll also get shop location updates, bonus content and character updates, first product peeks and sample sales, and exclusive discount codes :)
