New Items for Sale on RED BUBBLE


Recently I was asked to send some mugs and other items to Australia and New Zealand and realised that the postage was actaully more than the cost of the items. So I looked at other options and decided to start an account with Red Bubble, a 'print and post' company with depots around the world - making postage more affordable. I have added my WHIPPITZ range and they are now available from there on lots of items. I will soon be adding more designs to the range.

Gail Armstrong - Artist and Illustrator


Wife, mother of two boys and kennel maid to three dogs, living on the beautiful coast of Northumberland.


I spent most of my childhood preparing to go to art college. I would draw and paint anywhere...walls, telephone directories, even on the back of my Mum's jacket! However while waiting for my exam results I was enticed along another path by an advert to join the Royal Navy, which I did - as an aircraft engineer. Those nine wonderful years helped me grow up, learn a few lessons and gave me confidence to take on new challenges. There followed a career mostly in retail and adult education, ending in 2015 when I took a leap of faith and became self employed. Initially as a creative coach, but when public interest in my artwork grew and I received my first commission - a series of  designs to promote Blyth during the Tall Ships Regatta in 2016, I had to change tack (pun intended!)


Art and writing have always been my passion, and I am extremely fortunate to be able to do both as a career.  I have also started to write a novel based on my days in the WRNS.It's early days but I'm enjoying the nostalgia of research immensely.


I create most of my work digitally using an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. I love how versitile it is and means I can work anywhere without the mess, but I still enjoy painting and sketching when I can. 


Welcome to my website and my creative world, I'm thrilled you took time to visit me.
