wall map…

Monday, January 9th, 2017

Reflecting back on last year and the work I completed. I was commissioned by my brother to design a wall map for a large wall in his Manchester office – Loved doing this and I’d love to do more work like this. Great to design on screen and even better to draw directly on the wall and see the scale of it in context – more maps I think this year 🙂






back to normality soon please…..

I like routine……

These holidays are going on for what seems like forever……..

Roll on next monday please,where normality and routine resumes……

Not sure why coffee cups link to this post but hey its random at this time of the year, particularly when you have to remind yourself what day of the week it is….


Happy New Year!

Looking forward to a great new year filled with lots more illustrations and designs xx


work published…

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

I have followed the Print Pattern blog for years – such a great showcase for the genre of surface design, illustration and pattern. Marie Perkins the founder of the blog has had several books published over the last few years all of which are gorgeous books filled to the brim of design, illustration and beautiful patterns. I noticed last year there was a call for entries for a new book which was focusing on Nature, so I applied and to my shock got accepted! So a year or so later the book has now been released and I have a dbl page feature – beyond happy and very flattered to appear against some of the biggest names in the industry. My copy arrived today – a great great way to finish 2016. I have so many ambitions as a designer of things i’d love to do and achieve and I feel now is my time to make these things happen and start believing in myself a bit more xx
