New Handkerchief Edition


I've finally added my latest edition of Love Token hankies to my shop. Available for just £30 each they would make a lovely gift - what with Valentines, Mother's Day etc coming up or just for yourself... Each hanky is a different colourway so rest assured yours would be unique.

Studio Christmas Shop



Sadly there is no Field Work this Christmas due to Rosie and I having other commitments. The good news is that somehow I am going to jazz up/tidy my studio and make it look like some kinda shop. So come down on 7th December between 12-7pm and see what I've been making this year and get yourself some Christmas presents. There may even be some mince pies!

Field Work is set to return in the spring...

A new collection of hand worked silk velvet cushions. The individually dyed fabrics have been hand painted to depict six different botanicals. Drawing inspiration from early botanical paintings, Anna Atkins cyanotypes, Karl Blossfeldt photographs, Victorian velvet paintings and American tinsel paintings. Each cushion has a complimentary plain dyed velvet back. These currently exist as an edition of 12. I'm very excited to have these cushions finished and photographed by the lovely Victoria Siddle

Test Shots





I spent the day yesterday with photographer Victoria Siddle shooting some of my new textiles. There's something I really like about these test shots with my hands in them!

New Cotton Purses


More new prints from my botanical series. These hand screen printed cottons feature drawings of different seed heads and have been made up into varying sizes of purses. As usual, they are available from my shop. I'm really happy with the colours of these, the way they become much more muted on cotton.

Hand Painted Botanicals

 'Anenome'
 'Dianthus'
 'Dicentra'
 'Nemophila'
 'Passiflora'
 'Lathyrus odoratus'
'Viola tricolor'

I've just got these back! I made an edition of 9 botanical paintings on hand dyed silk and each is one of a kind. They have hand rolled edges as a handkerchief but perhaps more suitable for the wall and framing than sneezing on. They're approximately 28x28cm. Available from my shop.

Velvet Botanicals - Work in Progress...

 'Rosa'
'Ranunculus' detail

Today I sent off the final fabrics to get made up into a new collection of cushions I have been working on. I have printed an edition of 12, well, all the detail is actually hand painted. Velvet is difficult to photograph so these aren't the best representations but I am looking forward to getting the final goods back and showcasing them!

Fishes


I've just added some new purses to my shop including these summery little fishy numbers. I printed the fabric what feels like an age ago so it's nice to see em existing.

A Wedding Invite




I was very touched to be commissioned to design the invites for my friends wedding. The original is hand painted in gouache. I was especially pleased with the checked lettering.
