Quernus on YouTube

From January 2021, I've been putting all my live video chats and short stop-motion films on YouTube, as well as Facebook. There are just over 20 videos uploaded now, so I thought it was about time that I let you all know about it!

New FAQ section!

Everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask...

I have just updated my FAQ page! I've been keeping this page for several years, based on questions I often get asked. There's lots of information in there, if you haven't come across it before.

And if you have a question that isn't answered there, do drop me a line and I'll add it to the list.

Happy Wee Creatures

Happy Wee Creatures

I started the Happy Wee Creatures initiative during these "interesting times" to remind people that they are loved, appreciated and not alone. I will continue to send out Happy Wee Creatures to your special people for the foreseeable future - it's my way of giving something back and helping to make the world a happier place.

You can find out more about this initiative here, or drop me a line

It's The Wee Things in Life collaboration

New collaboration launched
I'm delighted to announce the launch of a wonderful collaboration with Tara Slater of The Lesser Spotted Kiwi! Tara has created this beautiful illustration which captures everything that Quernus means to me :) We have created a special edition collectors' set (pictured) which includes a signed edition of the print, a Chick Magnet made by me, and a beautiful little wooden bunting stand made by Tara. A3 and A4 prints and greetings cards are also available.

Pop-up Peekaboo Unicorn book

Pop-up Peekaboo! Unicorn book

In 2018, I was commissioned by DK Publishing to make five unicorns to be photographed for a children's pop-up book. The book was published in 2019, and I love how they have captured each of the wee unicorns! What really tickles me is when peope post pictures of the book which they've seen when out and about ;) You can buy the book on Amazon UK and Amazon.com. For more photos, click here.
