On the Move...

...In more ways than one, Rich and I are about to move house. Its all terribly exciting, the new house will enable us to set up a proper studio, so in the spirit of new beginnings I have decided to move my little art blog to my website www.katwhelan.com
So if you would like to keep reading my nonsense then please wander over there for a little look, hope you like it!! A big thank you to all who have followed me so far!

My First Book

Oh my god, how long have I been waiting for this!! Well about 27 years actually, but in real terms only about 8 months.

Yep that degree in 'Illustration for Children's Publishing', 3 years of my life and the small mountains of debt was totally worth it!

Fingers crossed someone actually buys it now!

Popular Crafts Magazine

I'm in another magazine this month...

Oooh exciting, must remember to buy a copy!


In the next couple of weeks my little paper creations will be appearing in a new gallery in Barnstable Devon, so the last month or so has see an awful lot if this...

Good luck little circuses, I hope you look good in Tracey's new gallery!

New Creations

Yes I finally have a few new bits for the shops...

A new circus and two new flat packs, also I'm hoping to have a brand new item up for for sale in the next week, still working the kinks out of the design though!

A few weeks ago I was approached on Etsy by another buyer offering to do a trade for one of my Theatres, naturally I'm always up for swaps, I just love getting nice stuff in the post (rather than large scary bills!) So I was over the moon when these showed up...

And when I opened mine (the biggest one naturally!)...

How cute, my very own Wol!

Come Wol, you shall sit on my Mac and watch me work (or waste time...depends what sort of day it is!) If you would like your own Owl or anything else then check out the very talented Abby's shop or her very cool blog!

Cheers Abby, I really love him!

Cake Cards

Apologise for the lack of posts, life is yet again running away from me, various project and ideas all crowding for head space!

Anyway a few of my recent cards designs....
