Myself and my lovely, extremely talented friend Ani Passarelli have been working together for the past few months to create a lifestyle brand from our illustrations and crafts: ‘A-to-V Collective’.
We would love it ever so much if you would be kind enough to ‘Like’ our Facebook page
Thank you so very much

I have been collaborating with talented fashion and graphic designer Ani Passarelli to create a new lifestyle brand (I’ll be telling you more tomorrow) but have a sneak peek at our vintage inspired colour-in dolls and how we’ve been adorning ours.
They make a wonderful stocking filler for children or an artwork for adults.
Finally beating the creative block…first page of the book of anthologies for my final MA piece coming along nicely.
“My daughter has Flat Pig. A toy I was not fond of as it is visually lacking. She was given it when she was born. It is still loved very much and she is now 10 years old. Among all the cute teddies and other cuddlies for me it was an odd bond. However, now I love it too. Flat Pig still lacks for me any visual impact but as she loves it so much and when i look at it i see beyond the toy and can visualise her playing, cuddling, chatting to it. I will also confess Flat Pig has stood the test of time among all the toys we own. I have put him away to give cute teddy a chance and hope she bonds with my favourite bear among her bears. Only days later to be asked by a very worried face ‘ I can’t find Flat Pig’ and had I seen it. I can post his picture later too. He is currently being cuddled by her fast asleep arms.
When asked why he is so special I was simply told ‘ …because he is Flat Pig’. In a way that also said ‘…can’t believe you asked me that, can’t you see it!?’.”
‘My Flat Pig’
The start of collaborative projects for 2017.
Thinking about laser-cut wooden letter necklaces and prints.
Putting together Illustration series for my MA research project, focusing on androgyny, 20’s and the Flappers.
Flapper’s up the Empire State Building….
A walk in the park……(note the matching coats which have been inspired from 1920’s lift from Selfridges.
So many apologies for the delay with the animal alphabet – which if had gone according to plan would have been finished several weeks back (only just got a new scanner up and working) and busy with MA, teaching etc….
Let’s kick off with a few a day to blitz this alphabet…
O for Owl
P for Panda
Q for Quail
Embroidery project finals….silk neck scarf which has been digitally printed, areas of colour painted by hand and hand embroidered, the neck scarf shows a timeline illustrating the history of craft and textiles.
The trousers have been feature embroidered illustrations of woodland nature onto a William Morris print….
