 Hello,
back in May this year I was approached by 'Little Thing' Magazine to send lots and lots of images for a feature in their Summer issue and I am very happy to say that I have been published in this gorgeous Chinese Magazine, which is chock full of fabulous contemporary illustration, fashion features and European craft.   Web site here and Facebook page here ... if you fancy a look.

 Hello ...
me again.
Very happy to say that I have a brand new website.  Really very happy, as I think my new web site encapsulates everything I want to say in design and colour.   My brand as such.
Created for me by the amazing Artwork by Angie ... she is a diamond.

Here is the link, if you fancy a peek hensteethart

Thank you for visiting and all the very kind comments.

I will leave you this evening with pics of my latest work...little watercolours on air dried clay.
Mounted on book jackets.  
Thanks for stopping by. X

Hello,



I hope all is well with you and yours.

A few snaps of our jollies in Norfolk a few weeks ago.

Billy and I visit 'Wind in the Willows' a Shepherd's Hut on the grounds of the 
self catering cottage, where we stayed.

We walked to this sad old drainage mill from Horsey on The Broads.

Bill having the time of his life at Cart Gap beach.

 And the sun put his hat on for us too.
 An ice cream at Wells Next the Sea.
 Horsey Windpump :)
 Beautiful Norwich.
 Bill pooped.
 He makes my heart beat faster every time I look at him.
 Billy and I enjoying the view from the Shepherd's Hut,

Hello,



it seems strange not to get the needle and embroidery thread out, but I have really enjoyed painting flowers and Bees on these bags, made with antique French linen, 
a beautifully rustic, textured surface for the paint.

Hello,


thank you for your comments on my previous post....
Marcie, I will be adding Dennis the Donk to the screen print packs soon.   Infact, lots of new designs to be added to these packs in the near future.  But, in the meantime, here is a new screen print, the image being roughly A3 sized, hand screen printed onto lovely new cotton poplin.   Can be used as is in all sorts of projects, or cut up for smaller projects i.e. patchwork ... available over in my Etsy Shop.

Thank you for stopping by X

 Hello,
I have had a super reaction to the Vintage fabric Screen Printed Packs. I have had such lovely feedback with buyers telling me what they intend to do with the designs and who for...which is always really good to know.  

I will leave you know with two Envelope Artworks ... Blackbird sings.
