Degree Show

Here are some images of my degree show. It was a lot of fun, and the antlers, pheasant and owl now all live in my bedroom. Marvellous.

Get Stuffed

I haven't posted anything for ages as I've been working towards my final show. Recently I did some styling shots for my scarves so until I get more images of the scarves themselves, you can have a look at these. Photos are by Jack Watkins, the model is Lucy Blue.

On a Rainy Saturday.

When it is foul outside, there are no distractions from drawing. I wanted to refresh the imagery I've been using in my prints, so today I did these. I hope you like them.

Thanks Mr. Stag...

...for donating these beauts to my life. I bought them today from a man in a shop who has a pet owl that was perched atop a stuffed wildebeest head, dancing. I am not kidding. It is the best shop ever.

Oh Laverly.

I have been a busy bee, working on my final project. Which in itself is terrifying. But I have chosen to do a collection of prints for fashion, more specifically for scarves. I know that Grannies love them. But they are actually totally rad and FRESH. I hope. Well they will be. Anyway I'm enjoying myself.

Horace, most majestic of owls

This is Horace, my new boyfriend. I liberated him from my Uncle's barn, where he was very sad because he couldn't see out of his glass, because it was covered in about 30years worth of barn dust. All the glass was falling off and he looked very unloved. Also, my Uncle's wife is a vegetarian so I said I'd look after Horace because she will not have him in the house. I called him Horace because I think it suits his handsome (if slightly bug-eyed) face.

New Print Work

Here are a few bits I've been working on recently. They are all printed with procion on washed silk or silk crepe. The imagery is animal traps, which I have recently got very excited about, and these are a few ideas for background prints for fashion fabrics. I hope you like them, I think everything is starting to go a bit more how it is supposed to now. Also I have landed SUCH an exciting placement for when I graduate, so here's hoping all goes well and soon I will become a real person with a SALARY.

Bird Flu

These are for my new project. I sense an unhealthy obsession growing.

Here are some drawings I did this week. I want to gather a menagerie of drawn animals.

This is a drawing I did today of taxidermy eyes for birds. Taxidermy eyes are so fun, they come in so many colours and sizes with different shaped pupils. My least favourite are sheep's eyes because they have got that creepy horziontal pupil. Bleurgh.

OH goodness

This person is called Reid Peppard, her work is A M A Z I N G. She makes jewellery out of dead things. Check out the rats little crystal-encrusted tails. If someone buys me a ratty rosette, I will love you forever.

I am very excited about wallpaper these days. But I need to refine my methods, these are digital prints but I'm not too keen. However, as a first attempt, they're ok. I would totally have them in my house. But I say that about a lot of crap.

More Menagerie

Don't forget these ones too.


Most of these are digital prints, which I've decided I don't really like. They make everything all flat and rubbish. BUT we must try these things. Some have been hand screen-printed onto, embellished and embroidered. They are printed on cotton sateen.
