A Life on the Ocean Waves

"A Life on the Ocean Waves"

I couldn't resist making another stop motion film to celebrate all of June's Squeak Show Wee Sailing Mice!

You can watch it on YouTube, where you can also find the other stop motion films I've made with the wee creatures. I do enjoy making these!

Quernus Squeak Show Calendar & Collectors' Club

The Squeak Show Calendar & Collectors' Club

My biggest project to date! This year, I'll be working on a calendar for 2022 with 12 detailed scenes showing the wee creatures in various settings which will be professionally photographed. Throughout the year I will also be running a Collectors' Club where people can collect 12 individual wee creatures inspired by each scene. For more information, and to find out how you can take part in this, click here for more information.

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.

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.
