Lots of people have asked about Big Blue! He is sold, however he has prints available up on my website! 
He’s even available in the same size print as the original, which is massive. Give or take an inch. 🖤

It’s been a while since I painted a #lorrainelogan bear! 🐻
I think this stick-bear phase is my fav phase.

These are a few of my favourite things. 🐋
It’s been a bit of a rough week over here, poor Toby came out with a bad rash and we still have no idea what caused it. But I can tell you that when you walk in to an emergency room with a rashy baby during a measles outbreak, they take it VERY seriously. So after spending the day in the isolation room we are home, doing well, but still none the wiser! (It’s not a sickness, but reaction to something, maybe something I ate?!). Also decided an isolation room would be a great environment for a reality tv show.
It’s also only two weeks since I had surgery, but I have not been acting like it! So I am getting every sign from the universe to slow things down, and focus on time with my babies before summer market season begins! 🖤

Anyone else get floods of inspiration and end up staring at an empty easel until you can choose which piece to start first?! That’s about where I’m at. 🖤

Welcome to the world little Toby 🖤
Soaking up every minute with my new little man. I’m still sort-of on my self-given maternity leave, but I’m itching to get back in to the studio, especially since it’s actually a studio now and not the corner of my parents living room! xx
Thank you @islandmomentsphotography for capturing this snuggly moment! •

I’m laying on the couch binge watching Queer Eye for the next week, so I really don’t have any new work to show you. 
So here’s a photo of the back of a giraffes head and my legs. 🖤

I am officially on maternity leave! 🤰🏼
Next week I’ll be having my baby boy, and I’m giving myself exactly 25 days off before I’m back to work! 
Just a friendly reminder than I’m a one woman show, so as much as I always want to reply to messages promptly, I am going to be a little swamped for the next couple weeks so please bear with me 🖤
I’ll be back in action April 26th for the “Meet the Artist” night at my solo show @thecrowsnestgallery , and I’d love to see you all there! 
In the mean time, I hope you all have a lovely April and a Hoppy Easter!! Thank you all for all the love lately! 🐰
