My copy of Boxed and Labelled arrived in the post today- nice to see my work in print!
Here are some awful photos - but you can buy a copy for yourself HERE. There is some seriously great packaging in there...I feel honoured to be placed next to such great practitioners.

An aid to the Amateur Sailor

is back!
I have been screenprinting and manufacturing ready for Christmas time! Email me if you're interested in buying one/stocking them.


Had a morning of screen printing hard labour but it was a productive one. Have printed my pearly king and queen (along with other things to come) so it is ready for sale! It is a black and white screen print, A2 and it is an edition of 35. Email me if you are interested at

Lion Street Store

This is a bit of an overdue post. I am now selling my work in Lion Street Store in Rye, East Sussex. It is a design led fmaily store stocking 'the finest in unusual homewares, toys, textiles, jewellery, stationery and confectionary alongside original artwork and prints.' If you are in the area you should pop in...Rye has lots to offer! I also designed the gift vouchers for the store which was really fun. They can be bought in denominations of £1, £5, £10 and £20 - a great Xmas present idea!

Postcards from Europe

The book launch for the wonderful Postcards from Europe exhibition went down in Wem yesterday and was a resounding success. The exhibition was beautifully presented, inspiring and intriguing and the book reflects this alongside interviews from both established and emerging artists. Here are a few photos of the event but you can still keep up to date and see pictures of all the postcards on their website HERE. Well done Portmanteau! I am very proud to be part of such a great project.

The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman

Cannot wait to go to Grayson Perry's newest venture at The British Museum. I am thoroughly enjoying reading the blog of Alan Measles, God and Perry's childhood bear HERE and am seriously considering joining twitter (despite all my previous reservations) just so that I can follow Alan Measles. (Do I, Don't I?) It opens tomorrow- book your tickets! I also would really like to buy the silk scarf he has designed in conjunction with the exhibition but I doubt my pitiful purse strings will stretch that far.

Got obsessed and drew a million bakelite horses yesterday.

X is for Kissing

X is for Kissing.

An unexpected kiss from a tall dark stranger is certain to be followed by a proposal of marriage. But beware! Kissing a man with a moustache should not be lightly undertaken; if a hair attaches to your lips you will never get married!
