Gilded Snow White prints

In my Etsy shop now: hand-embellished fine art prints of Snow White and the Poisoned Apple, gilded with gold leaf.
See listing for more details.
And remember kids: an apple a day keeps the prince away. So maybe try pears instead.

Fairy Tale ‘Spellcasters’

I was asked to draw original versions of characters using magic. Most of us have our first encounter with magic in the stories we hear as children, so I looked to fairy tales for my inspiration.

Here are the 10 insert cards I did for this set (Spellcasters by PernaStudios).
There’ll also be 3 return cards coming – one of which will feature Snow White’s stepmother again…!
