It's been a while....

Sorry its been so long since my last post. Life has been hectic!Lots of new designs and projects. But to say sorry here are some images of new art I'm working on. Had a bird request come in from a client and have moved it onto Christmas birdie art now..still a popular icon then!I love doing Christmas art at Christmas and not summer. Should be working on summer art now though!

This post is to celebrate Goodwood Revival which I'm going to next weekend. Can't wait, lots of vintage cars and fashion. It's so British, the ladies get dolled up in lovely vintage clothes from the 40's, 50's or 60's. I'm doing 50's. My husband loves the cars and I love the clothes, so everyones happy!

I love doing cat and dog designs and for some reason cats seem to be outselling dogs at the moment. So roll on little kitty designs.

A little more Christmas...

Well I've enjoyed doing a new collection of holly and berries, even in all this sunshine! My studio is in the attic and it is boiling up here!

Thanks Print Pattern

It's raining cats and dogs..

Well, it's rained all day here. Thunderstorms yesterday and more rain today. I've just got back from my run and I'm soaked. Think these little kitties will want to stay indoors, just like my dachshund who hates wet weather!

Aaah Christmas....

This is part of a new collection I have just finished for Print Source, where Roy and Jane Evans will represent me.

harvest.... just around the corner! Well, hopefully we can enjoy lots more of the lovely sunshine before this but I'm still busy working on new Harvest and Christmas collections in all this sunshine. Strange thing about design we do Christmas in summer and Summer in Winter!

Garden Party

It's summer and I'm on a run of gardening designs now! Enjoy the sunshine and get out in the garden - I'm going to knock off now and get busy with some plants!

Mr & Mrs.....

Ok, so it's wedding season. We were at a lovely wedding last weekend and I'm always looking at the dress. Must have inspired me onto this design.

Monday, 23 May 2011


I've been busy working on a card selection, valentines, mothers day, easter etc.. all which have come and gone but I'm still looking for inspiration! At least we haven't had gathers day yet!

Can anyone help me.... I'm having problems lining up the gadets on my Blog layout. They keep moving downwards and I'm really frustrated with it now!! I'd be really grateful for any advice.

Wednesday, 18 May 2011


I've created a little range of designs based on script. I love the idea of playing with letters and shapes. The list could go on and on with ideas. Must stop soon and move onto another area.

with love

These little princess fairies will be making their way to Surtex very soon with our great agent Roy & Jane Evans Designs. It's a bit of a mad rush, printing, trimming and getting new work done- but worth it!

Royal Wedding Fever

Having spent the day watching the Royal Wedding, it has made me feel very British so I thought I'd post a very British design!!

Christmas again

This is part of a collection I'm working on for Sutex next month. Thinking of a new Christmas character now to finish the collection. It was going to be a penguin but I was told buyers aren't into them so much at the moment so maybe a dove!

It's raining cats and dogs!

Well not really, it's a beautiful sunny day here and I'll be enjoying the sunshine when I take my own little pooch Poppy out for a walk later on today. First things first, another design to go with these little pooches...a little kitty design to make a pair.

Christmas doves

It's lovely sunny weather and here I am doing Christmas again! I am always looking for new ideas for this subject and colours and never tire of doing it! This will go to Surtex next month with a few more to join it!

more cakes please...

I can't stop doing cake designs. I love going for afternoon tea. We have a famous tea room called Betty's in York, close to where I live and last Saturday I spent the afternoon indulging...What heaven ...I call it research!

Spring is in the air, the lovely weather is bringing on lots of lovely floral designs. I keep swapping between Christmas and Spring at the moment. Think it will be another Spring design tomorrow though! I'm feeling sunny!!
