I’ve just submitted my entry into Zizi’s graduate Competion, The brief is purely to be inspired by the words ‘Deliciously Stylish’
I have really enjoyed designing this piece, the brief was very free allowing me to be open with my illustrative style, I have created two edgy fashion dolls, which to me conjure up images of Milan and Italian Fashion (as Zizi’s is an Italian restaurant surrounded by organic produce…….Fingers Crossed!
Exuberantissimo quirky designs bursting forth with life and colour, illustrations as fresh and young as the ingredient’s used in Zizzi’s menus!
I was very excited to see my work on Amelia’s Magazine Website today; Illustration of Brooke Roberts’ ‘Medical Inspired Knitwear.’
I’ve been routing through some old sketchbook images and printing them onto garments, then hand embellishing into each, so each top is unique, they make fantastic Xmas gifts!

I’ve designed some new prints, which are framed and I will be putting up for sale, here are my first two Xmas designs (£15 each contact me if interested or want more details).
As a child I spent weekends and holidays at my grandparents’ house and whilst there I would sit in the living room by the fire and draw my surroundings as the house is full of unusual ornaments and vintage treasures.
Looking back now I feel that the time spent at this house has had a huge influence on the style of my work and the illustrative direction which it has taken.
I’m Currently having a rest from the hustle and bustle of London by escaping to my home town of Bristol for a few days! Looking for fresh inspiration I took a trip to Bohemian Gloucester Rd, which has a wealth of small independent shops and Cafe’s.
I discovered Vintage Clothing Boutique : Cox and Balloney which had a delightful little tea room built in and the shop is like an Aladdin’s Cave of vintage objects and clothes! What attracted me the most to this boutique was its layout and decor and the merchandising really has maximum Visual impact!
Today I’ve been finalising my greeting card designs as I aim to have a huge batch printed tomorrow! There are going to be over 20 different designs from blank greetings to Christmas cards, here’s a sneak preview of a few designs :
