Baby Bird Cushion

Boyfriend’s Mummy loves her illustrated “Baby Bird” cushion which I gave as her Christmas gift.



Pet Cushions

Posted on Updated on

A little pet cushion commission I completed for a dear friend to give her husband on Christmas Day….featuring beloved doggie pet “Godfrey” to go with the cushion of her gorgeous Persian cat ‘Sooty’.

The ‘Godfrey Dog’ cushion was made using colour and pattern to compliment the vintage floral background of ‘Sooty Cat’….I think they look delightful together….






A ceramic ‘Toybox’ for adults

Posted on

I’d like to consolidate all of my design ideas (from my present sketchbook) into one large piece to create an eclectic, kitsch ceramic box (like a toy box but to serve as a trinket holder for adults).
The illustrations on the outside will serve as a visual diary which capture everything which inspires me from vintage dolls and florals to kitsch, childlike puppy illustrations.
This keepsake box will be used to hold treasured items of sentimental value, reminiscent of childhood memories and nostalgia….
