Friday Afternoon




As much as I love and am continually surprised by British birds, I occasionally get a bit envious when I look further afield and find that America in particular seems to have brighter, more colourful versions of our native species. For example the American Robin, Stellar Jay and this dazzling Goldfinch!

The Hepworth Wakefield


In the run up to the anticapted opening of The Hepworth Wakefield I approached the gallery about designing them a series of exclusive "Wakefield' cards... we went ahead and they've been selling really well in the gallery shop since the very first day!

So I was really pleased to receive a lovely email from a customer yesterday who'd purchased all five designs and had them framed to go in the kitchen! She very kindly sent me this picture...

A different kind of map!

As some of you may have noticed, I like maps. So, of course I like this map created by Angus McArthur & Alison Hardcastle, I found it whilst taking a peek at the blog of http://www.wemadethis.co.uk/ a London based graphic design company specialising in Print!

Can't beat a bit of Battersea!


It's getting to that time of year when I have to start thinking about lovely things for Christmas! In my adventures around the interweb I came across some lovely designs by Snowden Flood. I particularly like this Battersea Apron!

New... 'Skipton Sheep' A Limited Edition for Nora's in Ilkley


I have been asked to produce this lovely Sheep design for Nora's in Ilkley. With their close proximity to Skipton and the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, 'Skipton Sheep' combines silhouettes of sheep and lambs with an antique map of the area and background colour inspired by the National Park.

This Saturday.. Not to be missed!


Well I'm really sad to hear that this Saturday 16th July will be the last ever Craft Candy event at Millennium Galleries in Sheffield.

However we will be there with smiles on our faces and of course lots of lovely goodies to cheer ourselves and the visitors up.
