My lovely friends Nichola and Jay (you might remember their farm/festival wedding from 2011) are expecting their first baby in the next few weeks which is super exciting! As this will be another Paper Fudge baby, I was honoured to be asked to paint a mural for the new baby’s nursery. Not knowing what the sex of the baby was, it had to be quite neutral so Nichola and Jay asked for a tree with birds and an owl of course.

I have a lot of experience of painting on canvases but not on walls of this scale! So I was slightly nervous but I got my bag of acrylics and fuelled with plenty of tea and biscuits provided by a heavily pregnant Nichola I happily painted away. We were all really pleased with the results and hopefully the baby will like his/her artwork too! I really enjoyed doing this and would definitely like to try it again.
