Over the last year my mum and myself have been working on the Circus Girl Colouring Booking.
My mum has always been a great painter and illustrator, I've always admired her work and for some time wanted to take advantage of the skills we have between us. When I was a child she would draw pictures of mermaids and fairies, I loved them, and would stare at them for hours. With this book, we can share a little bit of the joy. Years later I did a degree in graphic design, fast forward another 8 years after my career in graphics for fashion ended, and here we are.

Work in progress.
The Faeries book was also a big influence, I remember looking over the pages multiples times as a child, and using it as part of an art project as school.
My mum does beautiful drawings, and I edit them and put them together into downloadable PDF files.
So far this has been over a year in the making, it's a slow process, we are just letting the creative process take it's course, while trying not to pressure ourselves too much as we both run costumes shops that we need to upkeep daily. My mums makes fascinators & veils, and I make festival and burlesque based costumes.
