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

coffee….

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Its that in between Christmas and new year bit of time where no one is really sure of what day it is – I planned a wise move, sent my children to football camp for the day to run off days worth of food. So i get a day to myself to catch up with some work and drink coffee and enjoy the peace 🙂
