The best view comes after the hardest climb. Artwork Illustrations by Erica Palfreyman. Beautiful things don't ask for attention.


The main character in my illustrations is a girl called ‘Cotton Sock.’ I created and developed her during the early stages of the Covid 19 pandemic. I had been looking for, and hoping to find, a new project that I could escape into and find a bit of enlightenment during those uncertain times.
I came across a quote from an unknown writer which read,

'I walk around like everything is fine but deep down, inside my shoe, my sock is falling off.’  

Just like that Cotton Sock was born 🤍
Over time I have introduced other characters to join her on her journey - the calm and humble Snail, the wise and bashful Fox and the gentle loyal Cocker-poo.
Her journey will hopefully encourage you to always remember, ‘You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and more loved than you can ever know.’ Her journey is a beautifully illustrated fable of resilience, courage, hope and love, for all ages.
