The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,900 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.

I feel compelled to express some thanks to the internet community for raising Eye heart Spleen to dizzying heights. By the wonderful whim of the internet I found the images going viral and popping up in every other design blog around the world. I had interest expressed from press agencies in China, Italy and the UK, culminating in two articles being published on major online platforms- the Huffington Post and ABC news.com. I made a few exciting sales on Etsy and had an outpouring of fans from around the world. So to you, I say thanks- for deeming these images valuable enough to share, and for giving a little artist like me, the hope and confidence to continue sharing my work.
Lets stay in touch :)

I’ve been busy!
After attending the Back2Health conference, I had countless women ask after an image of ‘breasts’. I realised it was a much needed addition still missing from the collection. The demand was both heartening and overwhelming.
So under the beautiful April skies I began the foraging. From Glastonbury to the Clifton Downs, the foraging expedition to find the prefect breasts was no small task. However, after several frustrated attempts at arranging soil and small blossoms to into breast shapes, in the place of delicate feminine contours what I had staring back resembled miniature volcanoes made of dirt. Not quite what I was aiming for! So in attempt to try harder, off I went in search of wider meadows, scouring the Clifton Downs for the ideal textures to make up the breast tissue, and finally arrived to Glastonbury town centre, where there lay round little pink flowers perfectly shaped like nipples.
So now, I proudly present the newest addition to the Eye Heart Spleen collection:

More news coming soon….
Its been a while since I’ve posted anything. Camera assisting has been keeping me busy these last few months. So here’s what’s new with my art:
Eye Heart Spleen had a very successful appearance at the ‘Back2Health‘ Conference, an integrative Cancer health-care event, organized by the wonderful Fiona Shakeela Burns.
It hosted a dynamic range of speakers with powerful testimonials about their recovery from cancer using alternative therapies, as well as some fascinating talks about health, life and spirit!
There was a great reaction to the prints, as people responded well to the use of nature plants and herbs to portray our organs.
I would love to do more events like that so if you’re in the know please drop me a line.
In the meanwhile, I hope you’re feeling blessed and happy!
This is what it feels like to be featured on Made in Bristol’s ‘Meet the Maker’ interview….. very good!
