PUBLISHING DAY for Get Outdoors: My Nature Activity Book

Hooray! Today is the day that Get Outdoors: My Nature Activity Book gets published!


I'm delighted that following the success of the first two books on the theme of feelings and mindfulness, this wellbeing series has continued with a third title. Published by Welbeck Children's Books and aimed at children aged 5-8 years, the book is packed with puzzles, games and creative activities to encourage children to get outside and engage with the great outdoors.




Learning to appreciate and enjoy nature as a child can be so beneficial for mental well-being later in life. It’s been a delight to capture some of the wonder and fun to be found in nature, that brightened the days of so many who spent more time outdoors over the last year or so.


I will be selling signed copies on my Etsy shop soon, please keep an eye on my Instagram and sign up to my mailing list for updates!

STOCKIST NEWS - Curated Makers opens it's own shop in Meadowhall

I’m SO HAPPY and excited to announce today’s opening of Curated Makers pop up shop (an entire shop!) at Sheffield's Meadowhall shopping centre. It’s quite surreal to see my stock in Meadowhall - I know the place like the back of my hand after spending many a shopping trip there in my youth and beyond! 

As ever, I am amazed by the hard work of Megan and her supportive team to transform this space (previously a menswear store) into a bright and beautiful shop dedicated to showcasing local, independent makers. I’m very proud indeed to have my stock there and urge you all to go have a look!

Being in this beautiful new store along with my other amazing stockists in Sheffield has spurred me on to create new products this Autumn, so please follow along on Instagram to keep an eye out for new delights on their way to the shop shelves soon!











COVER REVEAL for Get Outdoors: My Nature Activity Book

I’m SO EXCITED to share my next book that’s coming out SOON! 

Get Outdoors - My Nature Activity Book will be published on September 2nd. Published by Welbeck Kids and jam packed full of activities to encourage children to step outside and engage with the great outdoors.

I’ll be selling signed copies when they arrive at JDHQ so keep your eyes peeled for updates, can’t wait to share more! 🤩

NEW BOOK: Nice Things to Send to a Friend

New to my Etsy shop! Nice Things to Send to a Friend is a book of sweet things to colour, write, make and send - or send to a friend to do! 

Available to buy on my Etsy shop.



Activities include letter paper, colouring sheets, things to write, draw and make.

The snail mail goodies can be completed by yourself and sent to a friend, or you can send to a friend to do. Fill in a list to get to know each other better, pop a bookmark in with a birthday card, send a friend a colouring sheet for some mindful relaxation... or send the whole book as a gift, so someone else can spread the joy! Simple ways to brighten a day!

NEW SCREEN PRINT - Sheffield View from Meersbrook Park

Today, my new Sheffield View screenprint will be going live on Etsy at 7pm tonight! A four colour screen print, signed and numbered from a limited edition of 60, showing the view towards Sheffield city centre from Meersbrook Park. 

I‘ve only ever had two colour screen prints on my shop, so it feels very special to have a four colour print. I hope you love it as much as I enjoyed drawing it.
