Hand-made Christmas decorations

Posted on

New super cute, illustrated, laser-cut and delicately hand-painted Christmas decorations created by myself and my dear friend and fellow designer Ani Passarelli, available in our Etsy shop.

This set is the only one like it we’ve made this year, so it’s completely unique…

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.

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….
