Thank you for stopping by, watch this space for new posts coming soon!
Well, I had planned to write a new post for the start/end of each month, clearly that was a little over-ambitious…how can we be nearly two weeks into February already??
Not to worry, I’m sure I’ll get better at this blogging thing as the year goes on.
Anyway, yes I just wanted to let you know I’m still here and that if you would like a portrait, please do get in touch 🙂
Instagram – pictures coming soon, I promise!
Hopefully I’m not the only one who is in that strange ‘in-between’ mood, of feeling not quite ready to admit Christmas is over but ready to move forward and face a new year?
This may only be the first day, but already I feel rather well prepared, organised and excited about 2016. Got my new, empty diary all ready to fill with memories and a to-do list as long as my arm to power through – bring on January 2nd!
Happy New Year ^_^
Foxes are probably one of the most recognisable animals, with their black and white markings on a striking orange coat.
They are known for being cunning and sly, hence this guy’s cheeky expression.
I left most of the rough pencil sketch on show, adding colour on the level below and details on the very top.
Lately I have been experimenting with shading, I like it to be minimal yet still give a design depth.
I think I’m getting the hang of it now but I am always learning as I go!
So kind of you to visit!
I have always sketched in my spare time, anything from character designs to imaginary creatures & this seems like a nice place to share them
I also love to sculpt and create things, though this is less frequent as it depends on the materials available nearby
My other love is animation and I would love to learn how to create my own short films
Ok enough rambling, hope that gave you a little insight into how this blog may evolve – pics coming soon!
My favourite month of the year has finally arrived, feeling so happy right now & can’t wait to start decorating my house.
To celebrate, I have decided to treat my blog to a revamp.
I hope you like this change, here’s to many more posts, portraits & updates in the future.
After taking a little break, I did my first craft show of this year and it was also my first time out as ‘Espy Art’ rather than ‘Hannah Taylor Pet Portraits’ 🙂
|I adore these fairy lights, they really helped make my work stand out|

Vicki (VHS Photography) did come along to visit me as a surprise and took lots of photos while I was working on my latest digital portrait.

All my stall neighbours were super friendly and helped me settle in right away. In fact, everybody was lovely, I don’t think I stopped smiling all day!
|Happy to draw all day long|
I was lucky from the very start as I got the car parked right by the door which meant less walking in the wind with all my stuff. Then I was given an 8 foot table, so much space, especially as I only booked a 6 foot one – big thanks to my Dad for helping me set up!

Its a shame I wasn’t able to wander around the show and appreciate everyone’s beautiful displays during the day, but here are just a few of the artists and crafters I met, with links to their work:
Etch A Sketch
My next craft show is over a month away, I just wish it was sooner!
I’d like to thank all the people who visited my stall and chatted to me, and a big thanks to you for reading this blog, you’re great 🙂
