Wallpaper Samples

I received exciting news recently about the designs that i am licensing to Art2Start....the samples are ready!
Its such a lovely feeling to know that something that i have created could be chosen by someone as their choice of wallpaper for a room they're decorating.
If you would like to order samples, either wallpaper or fabric from the website then click on the link below.

Along with my designs there are designs from other fabulous designers, Spellbound by Design, Victora Snape, Lorraine Purchase, Stephanie Stuart and Carol Aldridge.

I was contacted by recently by the owner of the Colour Coordinates website which interior designers use to source new wallpapers and fabrics. He asked if my designs were available as products already that he could feature on his website, and also mentioned that if they weren't would i be interested in licensing them to him for his new website art2start.

Art2start's aim is to help new designers produce their ranges and get them out there in the real world, by licensing designs to them it means that all this is possible, and i feel so priveledged that i was approached to be part of this.

Of course i was interested and so a few weeks on after making sure my designs were ready for production and here we new range of wallpapers and fabrics which are available from the art2start website, and listed on the colour coordinates website too. Wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed for me.

The Young Creatives

Recently I contacted The Young Creatives as I discovered them on Twitter.
They were asking for young creative people to get in touch with them and tell them a bit about themselves.
The idea behind The Young Creatives is to establish an online creative catalogue, if you're interested in being a part of it then why not get in touch with them??

Have a look at the write up that they did about me and my designs @

Have a look around the site for more information about The Young Creatives and their contact details should you want to introduce yourself to them!

oh dear...where does the time go?

Sincerest apologies, i cant believe that my last post was in August!

Since then a number of exciting things have happened. I have had two work placements, one at Hallmark Cards in September and another at Skew Studios in March. Just recently i was approached by somebody in the industry to license some of my designs for wallpaper and fabric, which sounds like such an exciting opportunity and I cant wait to get going with it, more about that when it finally comes off though!

I have been working on a number of different designs and have recently started work on a new collection so watch this space!

If you would like to see what work i have been creating since my last post then have a peek at my website

The finished studio

Here is the finished studio! So lucky to have a designing place for myself. Have an inspiration clip bar above my desk which was a brilliant find in ikea, shelving packed with designing essentials and two bookcases full of books and other materials. My very own design haven.

Final Collection....The Products!

I am currently in talks with a few people about the possibility of producing a selection of pieces from my final collection that i exhibited at New Designers. Here are a selection of my favourites.
Coffee can and saucer decorated with soverign ring motif.

Tea cup and saucer decorated both on the outside and the inside!
No tea party is complete without a cake stand. I love my cake stand which demonstrates my elderly teabags beautifully. Unfortunately this cake stand was damaged when i brought it back from London

I love the colours in this funky cushion!

My favourite tea towel showing a collection of the elderly teabag characters!

Complimentary tea towel using retro inspired shapes and gorgeous colours.

Another retro inspired complimentary tea towel.

These are my favourites and i hope that you like them too! Any comments and questions are welcomed!
