Regular visitors will be familiar with my penchant for seeing my art on cushions. I’ve been at it again with some of the recent additions to my portfolio. Enjoy!


‘I do needlepoint from kits. I give them as gifts to people in the form of cushion covers and they are often speechless with horror.’
Lynne Truss, author of Eats, Shoots and Leaves.

Pears like needlepoint.

Introducing Angry Pear needlepoint canvases and kits!

This winter, I collaborated with Barbara Russell of Barbara Russell Needlepoint Designs to convert some of my pear drawings into needlepoint painted canvases. She picked six of my favorite illustrations. So exciting! Here are the ones she picked:

Cleopeartra:

Pears like Wine:

Pampeared:

The canvases have turned out beautifully! You can purchase the canvases (and kits with threads) from Barbara Russell’s website under the pear people collection. I used to do a lot of needlepoint when I was younger, and I can’t wait to try these!

I’ll post pictures after I’ve finished one of these. I just can’t figure out which one I want. Probably Pampeared.
