New Cushion Collection

Posted on Updated on

Hello everyone, I’m sorry for being a stranger of late…It’s been a busy few months initially finalising my MA and more recently working on a large textile collection with my agent Xander Kastroma, for our client (I can’t say too much at the moment-but all will be revealed before long).

Prints have been based around my 2015 ‘Tree of Life & Growth’ illustration which has been inspired from the fantastically quirky and somewhat naive illustrations from medieval beasturies and adapted characters (developed from my drawings at the Grant Museum of Zoo-ology UCL).

A classic, yet quirky and contemporary series to add colour, character and life to the space they are placed in…
They’ll be available to purchase from my Etsy Shop and commercial clients in a few weeks.

Anyway here’s a sneak peak of the mood boards, inspiration and concept for the cushion collection…

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….

Vintage Doll paintings

Posted on

So my latest series ‘Vintage Dolls’ are coming along beautifully…..i’m having a great time re-interpreting the Vintage Wallpaper patterns from the Geoffrye Museum using a new colour palette and masking tape as a resist (takes me back to my university days as a textile student) it’s hugely exciting to be able to combine my Surface Pattern knowledge with my fine Art paintings….

I’ve been using collage onto certain pieces and they’re becoming rather surreal……documented the development below:
