From Windmill Hill...


Hi there!

My name is still Laura Mossop, I am still a painter and illustrator and I still have a terrible sense of humour which sees me laughing through all the crazy. My blog however HAS had a wee bit of a makeover. It's now called 'From Windmill Hill' after a place I used to live, where I created many of the ideas I want to create now that I finally have some time to explore them. I feel this is a more appropriate it sounds whimsical and rolls right off the tongue delightfully!

As a creative practitioner, I am also exploring traditional and digital arts and how they can be combined into participation events! As a creative however I still want to create whimsically, funny illustrations that people like to buy to put on their walls and chuckle at every now and then. This is where this blog, my etsy shop, Instagram and tumblr site come into being! It allows me to have fun, continue to express myself through these things and keep exploring the ridiculousness of my life without confusing people. These people may just want to learn about projection mapping and plein air painting and instead see a fabulous girl sitting on a giant cake...Not the worst thing on the internet but also not what they're looking for.

So if you're an old follower who for some reason still has me on your list, stay tuned for alot of major new developments, and for all new readers...welcome! Have a look through the archives and checkout my old artworks.

Speak to you again soon!

I Love Christmas Shopping...or do I?

So...Remember that time about a month ago, when you forgot what Christmas was like and you were all ' I love shopping and browsing for the perfect present for everyone'. This is my illustration of that feeling. I like this feeling...I wish it would last ( or at least longer then a week....) because it swiftly transforms in to this next feeling....

Happy Christmas shopping everyone!

Celebrating the poppy

I thought i'd take a break from posting Christmas cards and show you a old design that's going into a new range of art cards i'll be selling in the new year.

This is one of my favourites and i'm happy to be able to start selling it once more. She will be part of a set that links together illustrations of vintage styles and flowers, a theme that has been done before but certainly a good one.

Festive dancers, the old slow dance

Dancing with love at christmas

Festive dancing at Christmas

Here's the second card to be printed and added to the christmas card range i'll be selling this year. I've taken inspiration from family gatherings and christmas parties where you'll always find this couple, slow dancing together, the envy of young couples everywhere. 

What do you think, does this remind you of what Christmas is all about?

Christmas card time!

by laura mossop

Hello everyone! I'mgoing to be updating with my range of christmas card designs that will soon be available to buy!!
Its my first time trying to create card designs so let me know what you think of my festive dancers that will soon be on their way. :)

As you can see this image is not a festive dancer...she is just a lady dragging a fir tree which is only socially acceptable during this one, very specific time of year. Lady misunderstood.
