Latest print design finished. Yet to be titled, this A3 will be a high quality digital print. I’m aiming to get as many more done as possible before May. These will be available at the Claremont Hotel in Hove and on my online shop from May. More to follow……
During my daily visit to the wonderful print&pattern blog, I saw these delicious pattern designs by Luckyday studios who will soon be exhibiting at Surtex in NY. What beautiful colours mmmmm!
You will be able to see/buy a selection of my prints at 2 shows in this years festival. The first invite came from the lovely folk at artymagazine . They are curating a group show at a ‘pop up gallery’ at Gallery40 right slap bang in the middle of Brighton’s North Laines.
Other artists involved include John Dilnot, Rentaro Nishimura, Mark Powell and Seiko – all look amazing but I could not find direct links to many others websites. Anyway, come along throughout May and you can see them all in the flesh. A great variety that’s for sure!
The other exhibition will be at the Claremont Hotel on Second Avenue, Hove. Here I shall be launching a new collection of affordable giclee prints which will also be available on my shop.
Oops. I’ve overlooked the fact that my web shop blurb is rather out of date!
The shop is open for business and I am now able to process your orders again. Thanks to the lovely folks who have recently placed orders – I hope your are pleased with your purchases.
I will need to shut up shop for a couple of weeks whilst I move house. All the prints need to be safely packed up for transit so will be unavailable to purchase for a short while. You are still welcome to place an order but there will be a delay in posting.
I will let you know when things are up and running again – hopefully by the end of January.
Feel free to get in touch anyway. I’ll reply just as soon as i can.
Bye for now
One week into the new year, a little late I know! but best wishes to you all and thanks for checking in.
I’m now living half way between two houses and both are in disarray so neither feels like home right now. I can’t wait to get the fun part done – decorating! Whilst the house moving malarky is going on I won’t have much of my own creations to share with you but hopefully I’ll find enough time to briefly give a ‘shout out’ for the amazing work of talented folk I find.
I was doing a quick search for cool calendars and soon discovered this retro lovliness from One Little Bird. You should also check out their blog and Etsy shop……. which has got me thinking about relaunching mine..hmmmm…..(?)
As a special seasonal offer – these small prints are now just £10 each throughout December. There’s 4 designs to choose from: Dove, Blackbird, Buddliea and Dandelion and they come in a vibrant mustard yellow or a more subdued blue.
A perfect stocking filler or a posh “Secret Santa’ pressie!
In the process of packing boxes I came across some old stamp collections that used to belong to my mother-in-law. These festive ones caught my eye. Some of the dates are just about legible – late 60s to mid 70s. I love the vibrant colours and intricate designs.

I’m sure a lot of you are already aware of Design*Sponge, a brilliantly inspiring blog by Brooklyn-based writer, Grace Bonney.
I check in here regularly to refresh my ideas but as I’m about to own my own home for the first time, I’m particularly interested in the Sneak Peeks section. Here we get a glimpse into the homes of creatives from all over the globe – photographers, designers and stylists.
I’ve been a frustrated renter for years and I’ve never felt inclined (or been allowed) to put much effort into personalising my homes. Now that I have a blank canvas, I have so many different ideas that I can’t settle on anything!
By clicking through the hundreds of pics in Sneak Peeks I can start to get a better idea of what looks good. Everyone on here has great taste too and not at all biased towards owners exclusively, there are alot of rental examples where people have got stuck in and really made it their own. It ain’t Cribs either – not show-off-y at all, just lots of great tasteful styling and colour schemes!
Just look at that luscious vintage sofa!! From the beautiful home of Danielle Deboe – a particularly cool Sneak Peek in my opinion.
