Little Gems Book

Little Gems: Marvels and Musings on Motherhood from Around the World is a book project I’ve been working on with two very talented authors - Jane Langley and Bridget Fogarty. The book celebrates pregnancy, labour, birth, and motherhood, with fascinating folklore from across the world and through the generations. The brief was to create something unexpected for each ‘gem’ so the reader would be taken on a visual journey. I drew inspiration from many different places, trying not to produce a single style. All illustrations are hand-drawn. A fascinating read with a good dose of humour and fun, Little Gems makes an ideal gift for new mums, and a refreshingly different baby shower gift idea.
