Quirky cushions

Posted on

Hi Everyone,
I’ve had requests for purchasing new cushion designs and yes you can order directly :)…
Next Friday will be the cut off date for orders and cushions will be with you within one month (as I need to get labels made up etc).

Cushions cost £30 each, are printed and made in the UK, they measure 40 x 41cm and are made on vegan friendly fabric (lovely and soft, similar to faux suede).
I’ll need to take payments this week to pay for orders (P&P can be paid for later on).
These are the five most popular designs but if you’d like another design just let me know and I can pop it in the order 🙂

Tomorrow is the opening night for exhibition ‘BREW’, (Goswell Rd, London) http://www.streetcoffee.co.uk/pages/goswell.php

I’m packing up and preparing my now complete ‘Alternative Tea Party’ painting, here’s a sneaky peek; note the dapper Mad Hatter!


An Alternative Tea Party’

This painting was created using acrylic, ink and pastel and was inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’, a surreal fantasia.

My fashion illustrations are always inspired by vintage dolls, to which I add a contemporary twist. My Alternative Tea Party, which was inspired by Tim Walker’s fashion photography, resulted in this concoction of curious and whimsical characters.




I always have my original paintings scanned so I can make Ltd Ed prints; I had this one scanned at Clifton Print Services (Bristol), they are very friendly and always provide a top service: http://www.cliftonprintservices.com/

I am very excited about exhibiting my work at “The Curious

It will showcase a broad spectrum of craft disciplines including jewellery, textiles, millinery, ceramics and glassware and is on from 3rd November  (Private View 6-9pm) – 17th
