Hello I'm Ginette, I do graphic design, art, illustration and surface pattern design.
Here on my blog you can see the pictures i've been making, stuff I've been up to and the inspiration I found in my current home Whistler, Canada.
You can also view my portfolio for more of my design work, find out about bespoke wedding stationary and take a look at the cards for sale in my shop.

Sending out a big thankyou to everyone who bought charity Christmas cards! All the money raised went to Homeless Oxford, so lots of people could enjoy Christmas and keep toasty and warm.

I have been working on a whole calendar for 2018, featuring lovely places to visit around the British Isles. January is the mysterious white horse at Westbury on a frosty winter day.
You can get the calendar in my shop to enjoy in real life!
I also got inspired and drew a whole series of mysterious old white horses, chalk hill figures and prehistoric standing stones. The very naked Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset, the Uffington white horse in Oxfordshire, the Long Man of Wilmington the mysterious guardian of the South Downs, Callanish standing stones on the Isle of Lewis and of course Stonehenge near grannys house in Wiltshire.

My new calendar for 2018, featuring lovely views from around the British countryside. From Glastonbury Tor to Glenfinnan Viaduct via Portmeirion and Bamburgh Castle and my parents' garden! It is inspired by vintage travel posters and British Isle adventures and was lots of fun to draw.
The calendar is A3 size and for sale in my shop!

We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance. A wise Japanese proverb! This is my November calendar page which you can download for free on my homepage to stick up in your house to remind you to dance often like these two crazy cats! I don't often draw people so thought I would challenge myself with this one.
