A space to create. A studio, a virtual space, a favourite armchair in the corner of a room or just in our heads – it doesn’t matter where – simply a space to imagine, invent, dream or express our ideas…
Welcome to my creative space, a holding place for some of my most favourite things to do. I design, make, draw, paint, sew, weave, photograph and collect. I’m inspired by the natural world around me and I’m constantly guided by and drawn back to its beauty and intelligence.
Here you will find collections of Surface Patterns which all started life as either hand drawings, paintings, collage or photographs. They have then been digitally manipulated to make seamless pattern repeats. I am very experimental with media and I like to create unique textures using paint, pen, pencil, watercolour and printmaking. However, nothing quite beats just drawing with a black pen, a natural default for me spending many years technical drawing as a commercial Interior Designer. I am available for freelance pattern design and licencing. Please do get in touch.
Paprly is a place to browse and buy some of my unique patterns on wrapping paper, gift tags, greeting cards, giclee art prints, tea-towels and handmade heat bags.
A selection of my designs can also be purchased on fabric by the metre at @Nextstateprint as well as collections available for printing onto fabric, wallpaper, carpet or laminate for commercial Interiors at Emily Ziz -see Bushland Blooms and Artisinal
At Mandalou on Etsy you will find a selection of hand painted designs for sale all originals, no prints.
Lastly, NeekieNoo is my making playground – textile accessories and pieces for the home, made from vintage fabrics and some of my surface designs printed onto fabric. The weavings are all handmade using a vintage flower loom.
Please take a look, enjoy and thanks for visiting my creative space.
