I'm on Twitter

I have finally got around to creating my twitter account, there's no stopping me now! I found out last night that I have also just sold one of my textiles from the Cafe Kino exhibition. Yipeeeee


Colour for the kitchen. Any Ideas?

I really like the Dulux feature wall combination of the 'Overtly Olive' and 'Soft Apple' but the soft apple looks almost like a mint green when placed next to our red tiles. We have also tried an 'Earth Green' but that placed next to the 'Overtly Olive' looks to similar . . . Ohhh what to do? . . .

Kitchen Ideas . .

Floor Plan

We are almost ready to put out cooker and fridge back in place after tiling the walls and floor in our little kitchen. We knew ages ago that we wanted to go for black and white floor tiles.

I found some gorgeous tiles originally from Tile Flair, unglazed matt black and white from the Johnson range but found the exact same tiles at a very discounted price from Bristol Tile. They had so many samples in store but not the type we wanted. We then spoke to an assistant in the shop who brought out more samples and also helped us to source the exact tiles that I had spotted in Tile Flair. The were so helpfull. At the same time we also looked at wall tiles, also for the kitchen. For this area we knew that we wanted small square tiles, really small, about 2cm square. We had toyed with the idea of using green tiles as we have double doors leading to the back garden, and felt green would 'bring the garden inside', but we decided in the end that with green walls that might be a bit too much green so in the end we went for red glazed ceramic tiles.

I'm so excited, it really feels like the kitchen is pulling together really nicely. We are now pondering what colours to us on the walls in the kitchen and dining room. Definetely green, but there are so many options to go for!

New Cards

Purple Feathers 2 (Top image)

Purple feathers 2 is a printed card design from a series that I created last summer when I was taking part in an event in Scotland 'Spring Fling' 08. I was showing my work in this wonderful location, in a big old house that had peacocks wondering around the grounds.The card has hand drawn glittery imagery on top to add extra glitz to the card.

There are two others in the series available to buy from my online Etsy shop.


Bristol Inspiration

Its been a while . . .

I have recently been spending my time clearing my thoughts and finding new inspiration. My next aim is to work on new collections based on imagery from recent explorations of Bristol. I visited the Bristol Museum and found some wonderful ceramics that have provided some lovely colour studies . . .

I really like the combination of the stripes and flowers. . . . that gives me an idea! . . . .
