Studio Life : New Monkies

Hi Friends 🙂

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted here – probably a combination of a few things really.

Summer in our house is valued a great deal, especially since we moved to Hamburg – where Summer can range from a few weeks – to a few days! This year, Summer was an interesting mix of humidity, sunshine and lots of rain – but it was on those sunny days I felt the need to be out and about! Gee it’s nice to leave the house in nothing more than a cardie and sandals!

I travelled this Summer more than I have any other Summer I think – 6 countries this year so far and counting. If you know me at all, that means lots and lots of clicks on my camera – which means lots and lots of downloading, sorting, editing, deleting and more sorting – which I am still getting through – so please stay tuned for some Look Back posts about moments in NYC & Rovinj, Croatia – two amazing cities!!

We also adopted a gorgeous little kitten – who of course has also taken up a lot of my time of late – of which, I am not complaining. She makes me laugh and smile everyday and I treasure her morning cuddles. We have managed to get into a pretty good routine together, which will me help this Autumn to get back into the studio a little more often.

Some how in between all these lovely happenings, some new Monkies and Monsters were made & photographed –  which I’d love to share with you.

As you can see – it’s been a VERY colourful time! These are some of my best yet and I’m so happy with how they turned out. There are also some of my biggest – so if you’re looking for some big monkey cuddles – Betty, Wilson and Wesley are for you! If you’d like more info on any of these, simply click on the image and it will take you directly the listing in my Etsy Shop 🙂

Some very cute Egg Head Monsters and Tooth Monsters were finished this month too – some of which were for very special custom orders. I find it so lovely to receive a message with specific requirements and then managing to make their wishes a reality. Such a rewarding process, which I feel keeps creative makers like me ticking.

To be able to create something that didn’t exist before, featuring specific parameters that have been dreamt up by clients, is a gift to any kind of artist. So big thanks goes out to my lovely customers – it’s been such a pleasure to work with you all.
