Earlier this year I was thrilled to be asked to create some new artwork for the Woodland Trust.

This illustration of jays and oak trees is for a tea towel print and is based on some woods on the footpath between my house and Maenporth. As well as jays, I often see gangs of long-tailed tits and various beetles there, so they’re included in the design too.

The tea towels are available now on the woodland trust site and all purchases fund their work planting and protecting trees and woods.

There’s also two more designs for bags coming soon – will post them on here as soon as they are live.

Thanks so much to the lovely team at the Woodland Trust for thinking of me for this commission! 😊🙏
