A Bumblebee Hairbrush | Denman x Amy Holliday

I've teamed up with UK hairbrush brand Denman to create a fluffy bumblebee-patterned brush! 

A donation of 5% of each sale goes directly to bee conservation charity: The World Bee Project. 

The hairbrush is covered in a pattern featuring my fluffy bumblebee illustrations!

The brush is available to buy via the UK and US Denman websites - and I also have some available from my own Etsy shop: here :)


"THIS NEW D90L TANGLE TAMER ULTRA BEE BRUSH IS DEDICATED TO THE AMAZING WILD BEES THAT ARE SO IMPORTANT TO OUR PLANET. 

75% OF THE PLANTS THAT PRODUCE THE FOOD WE EAT DEPEND ON POLLINATION - CRUCIAL FOR OUR VERY SURVIVAL. YES, UN-BEE-LIEVABLY MANY WILD BEES ARE FACING EXTINCTION! 

FOR THIS REASON, DENMAN WANTED TO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL HAIRBRUSH THAT COULD MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE. WITH EVERY SALE OF THIS LIMITED-EDITION BEE PRINT TANGLE TAMER ULTRA, DENMAN WILL DONATE 5% OF THE SALE TO THE WORLD BEE PROJECT"

BumbleBlooms Wildflower Seedballs - and their New Bumblebee Watercolour Logo

 I’m excited to share BumbleBlooms’ new packaging now features one of my bumblebee illustrations. BumbleBlooms are a small business based in Edinburgh, who make mindfully-produced wildflower seed balls which grow flowers that bees absolutely love. This simple product makes it easy to help bees and other pollinators.

“As the world faces a climate crisis and mass extinction of the critical insects that most plants rely on for survival, there has never been a greater need for products that make a real difference. BumbleBlooms does just that!”

They are also proudly vegan and their packaging is fantastically plastic free. I am overjoyed to support and help promote such a wonderful business.

Editorial Illustration | Wild Marsh Rabbit Family Mother & Baby Bunnies

 A spring themed wildlife illustration created for 31-81 magazine last year. Marsh rabbits are lovely, cute little critters with shorter ears than the average wild rabbit. This was a treat to work on and I hope I can work on more wildlife themed illustrations soon.
