Getting there...

 Who knew that redesigning a website could take more than a year?!  Of course this is a very different year from the past my dear webmistress, Sonya at and I would mostly sit next to eachother in front of a computer and say "let's change that, can we move this here, let's add the other thing, do you want this, I'd like to delete that..."  

And instead, in this COVID year, we've exchanged a seemingly endless parade of emails and the occasional phone call!

This is both good news and bad news...I can take my time, mull over things at odd hours, and make sure that's really what I meant, and wanted to, say.  On the other hand...the bad news is that I can take my time, mull over things at odd hours, and make sure....well, you get the idea.  

Tweak, tweak, tweak, tweak...but we're getting there, with the help of dear friends and my beloved knight, who have acted as beta readers.  I can't thank YOU enough!

Just had to include my little poppets...

and of course the creatures we live with...

So far, this hasn't made the cut...

...but this has, talking about building our dreams...

There's a new gallery of my work in a number of genres, including journal sketches, paintings, fantasy, pottery, and professional illustrating jobs from years past.  There will be a few videos, mostly of the how-to persuasion; the art tips are all there, so are the mini classes, and a new Bookshop...

Can't wait to show it to you!

Meanwhile my classes, tips, and books are still available on my somewhat chaotic old site, here: and I am very grateful to all of you who have visited, reached out, become students and friends over the years.  You make it all worthwhile!

Please do comment and let me know what you think...


  1. Looking forward to this new building made out of all the things we know and love and all the things you we don't know yet :)

    1. Thank you Nina! It's going to be much cleaner and easier to navigate!

  2. Love whatever you do Kate!

  3. I always get a lift when I see your latest blog post in my inbox. Great to hear what you've been up to, and to see photos of you creating!

    I like being able to click on the Labels in the right-hand column to explore your earlier posts.

  4. Your work is so inspiring. I have three of your books that I love to look at over and over again. Today you inspired me to draw a Robin's nest that had fallen from a tree!
