Beautiful and richly coloured 'Chaffinches in Cherry Blossom' artwork by Lotti Brown...
I don't see chaffinches often in my tiny countryside garden, but when I do I'm always happy to see the beautiful colours as chaffinches were one of my absolute favourites as a child and were often visitors to our family garden...
I create my art from pen and marker drawings...
I draw each bird and branch of cherry blossom separately as I then scan each drawing into the computer and create digitally with my drawings in Adobe Illustrator... do you want to see?
Is art important? Do we need art when there's so many struggling for just the basics in life..? What do we need art for?
It's an important question - and one which goes to the very heart of our identity as humans and our hopes for how we want to live in this world...
I actually think in times like these it’s more important than ever to take care of, nourish and nurture our humanity… because art is humanity!
Humans create art. It’s one of the things we do that distinguishes us from animals. Cave paintings and carvings on stones, bones and more show us that art is important to humans. It’s a huge part of what makes us who we are.

My colourful 'Garden Wrens' artwork was inspired by seeing a tiny wren flitting about in the colourful Acer leaves in my back garden (while I was doing the washing-up!)... it was a wonderful moment as we so rarely see the little wrens that we suspect have a nest in thick ivy behind our plum tree...
Such a sweet little bird and a real treat to see in my own back garden!
I create my artworks digitally in Adobe Illustrator - but I start them the good old-fashioned way - with pen and paper...

Contemporary gannets art by Lotti Brown - ‘A Gaggle of Gannets’ - digital art created from pen and ink drawings and paintings…
Just like my recent puffin art, I was inspired to create this gannets artwork after a holiday along the north-east coast of Britain where I was lucky enough to watch gannets alighting on Bass Rock (through a telescope).
It was a cool thing to see and it reminded me, too, that I’ve also watched gannets (also known as solan, solan goose, or solant bird) very close to home and at a much closer distance at RSPB Bempton Cliffs.
I think gannets are perhaps a little overlooked (nevermind the difficulties of the ‘greedy gannet’ reputation!) because from a distance they can just look like white seabirds or seagulls… but they’re actually an amazingly beautiful bird with a beautiful golden head, a brilliant blue eye, blue-grey beak, and very unusual green stripes on their legs and feet!
They dive-bomb headlong into the sea to catch fish and can also fly at over 35mph and have a wing-span that can reach more than 6ft across! Huge seabirds!
My art is the ideal gift for nature and wildlife lovers with a large range of different animals and birds with the emphasis on British wildlife... from stocking-fillers to larger gifts...

Colourful and contemporary 'Puffin Perfection' artwork...
After a holiday on the north-east coast of Britain where I was absolutely fascinated by these amazing puffins, I wanted to create a puffin artwork to celebrate these colourful and unusual birds who find their homes on our north-eastern cliffs and rock-faces.
They really do have the most amazing colourful beaks - they don’t even look real, do they?
I created my puffin art from pen and marker puffin drawings, plus drawings of sea-thrift flowers and rocks, that I combined digitally in Adobe Illustrator…
