With the run up to Mothers Day I wanted to share someone I discovered on social media a little while back, who's work really struck a chord with me. Sketchy Muma (aka Anna Lewis) is a seriously talented children's illustrator who manages to tap into the more sentimental side of motherhood with her sketches. She perfectly depicts the trials and tribulations that come with becoming a mum. These are just a few of her prints that she sells on her Etsy shop and would make a perfect gift for your mum or to hint at being given. Ideal for Mothers day. Often funny and always moving she somehow manages to capture the emotions of how we all feel and I'm a soppy old fashioned romantic at heart :)
My favourite prints include Voicemail, Slow Down Time and Wonder... but they are all heartfelt and capture the moments of mamahood so well. There is a truth and connection we can all feel through her depictions of family and what it is to be a mother in this day and age.
We also have very exciting news! Anna is releasing a book 'Sketchy Muma: Are you ready for motherhood?' out later this year in October - it's available to preorder here. This will make the perfect gift for new and experienced parents.
