Space NK

Hello lovelies!

Here's the pig designs I created for the Chinese stores of Space NK to celebrate Chinese New Year (Year of the Pig). I really enjoyed using my new Japanese brush pen for this job and I definitely want to use it more.

SO many exciting things happening but I can't tell you about any of it yet Eeeeeek- will spill the beans soon.

Have a brilliant weekend and I'll be back soon x


Tiles installed at St James Mews

This Spring is going to be SO exciting, two of my HUGE public art projects are gradually being installed and It's SUCH a delight to see all the hard work come to life. Here's the tiles I created for St James Mews in Charfield.

After EXTENSIVE research, and a lovely community outreach project at the local school (more info here) I decided to create all the work for the development about the local diverse birdlife. There are four of these tiles creating a repeat pattern and featuring the same cherry tree branch. Each tile reflects the changing seasons and depicts the birds you're likely to find on the development at that time of year.

There's MUCH more to be installed including weather vanes, paving and sculptures so stay tuned!...

HUGE thanks to the brilliant London Mouldmakers for all their hard work and (as always) the lovely Emma from Studio Response for such a great commission x


Waitrose FOOD


Here's a new illustration created for Waitrose FOOD Magazine (Feb 19 edition available now). I really had fun writing the names of lots of friends and family on the corks!

I'm still busy JUGGLING lots of different projects and having a LOVELY time:
- Cladding for an electric substation
- Way markers and paving in Salisbury
- Sculptures, weathervanes and paving for Gloucester
- Sculpture and heritage trail in Kent
- Luxury chocolate packaging
- Packaging for a hotel
- Illustrated blinds
- Jewellery packaging

PHEW - I'd better get back to it!

Much love and I'll be back soon x


Visit to Scribble Stone

Hello you!

I had THE BEST visit to my favourite fabricators Scribble Stone on Wednesday with my mentee on the project (the BRILLIANT Ross Bennett). They are making my 6 way marker pillars and 2 LARGE paving slabs ready for the Barrett Development and new country park in Laverstock near Salisbury.

They are all inspired by Medieval Tiles found in the area and reflect the contemporary flora and fauna that will be found in the area. I'm SO SO happy with how they're looking and excited to see them installed later this Spring.

I hand draw all the designs (both the cut outs of the two stones AND the hand drawn details) then have them converted to vectors by the WONDERFUL Josh. These files then go to Scribble Stone, who use a powerful water jet machine linked to a computer to cut along my drawn lines in the two coloured stones. These are then slotted together and glued. The final part of the process is sandblasting the hand drawn detail. (My drawing is fed into a plotter which cuts out a adhesive mask ready to protect the areas that won't have the sand blast detail.)

I have tried to simply explain how this process works but in reality the team at Scribble Stone are INCREDIBLE as it's FAR more complicated. We have worked together on multiple projects and I am ALWAYS asking them to achieve things that shouldn't really be possible (just look at how narrow the bud stem on the poppy design is!!) They are a dream to work with and help me to achieve EXACTLY what I have in my head.

That's all for now A MOUNTAIN of work to do today!!!

Have a LOVELY week and I'll be back soon x


Coworth Park Mug

Hello all


I had SUCH a wonderful Christmas and New Year with Al, COMPLETELY full of family and love and laughter. I'm feeling really inspired and excited by the year ahead. Already LOTS of projects from 2018 to be completed and lovely new exciting ones on the way. 

Here's the mugs I created for Coworth Park in Ascot (one of the hotels in the Dorchester Group). I've worked on lots of lovely projects for them, I'm just finishing off a tea tin and there's new packaging in the works too - they're a lovely client!

Be back soon - have a LOVELY weekend xxx

Walworth hoardings

Hello all!

Cor what a week, I've had a LOVELY new rush job in for Waitrose, finished off the final designs for Charbonnel et Walker's new packaging, worked on the projects for Coworth Park AND... my 95 meters of illustrated hoardings surrounding Walworth Town Hall have now been installed and I'm DELIGHTED!

There is LOTS of juggling in the studio at this time of year! Trying to finish off projects before the Christmas break, balanced with seeing all my BRILLIANT friends and family AND keeping up with rehearsals for my Charleston Dance Troupe which I LOVE (xmas social/ secret Santa next week WHOOP WHOOP!). We're off to my parents for the weekend as it's my sister's birthday and I'm SO excited as they've decorated the house (they do SUCH a beautiful job of this EVERY year!)

I am Christmas OBSESSED! (my decorations have been up since the start of November!) and I've already promised myself that I can keep up the new fairy lights all year as they are SO PRETTY! My tree isn't real BUT... I have a Jo Loves candle in 'Christmas Tree' which is DIVINE! We keep feeding our Christmas cake (and smelling it LONGINGLY!). If it tastes ANYTHING like it smells then I will eat the ENTIRE thing at great speed! Really looking forward to decorating it next week x

Have a lovely weekend whatever you're up to and I'll be back soon x
