Summer Showcase at Heart Gallery


I popped some of my work in the post on Monday to Alison at the Heart Gallery for their new summer showcase exhibition from 10th June to 03rd September. They are celebrating the Best of British Craft new makers who are inspired by the natural world... that's me! The showcase will compliment the exhibition work by Suet Yi (ceramics) who is inspired by the beauty of wild flowers, falling leaves, autumn trees and resting birds.

Pastel and beyond

 Autumn/Winter 2013
Colour Board

Work starts next week on my 2013 collections and I'm loving the current pastel accent trend, maybe a few pearlescent/shimmer accents to bring luxury to my prints is just the twist I need. I found the fossil above at the Natural History Museum Oxford, it's full of texture and sophisticated colours against the cool grey background!
