I like this one. I want her hair.


I'm really lovin' experimenting with Art Nouveau
 at the moment, mixing contemporary illustration 
with decorative 1920s surface pattern and fonts...
 they are so delicate and feminine. 

Year of Eccentricity.

Ok so 2011 wasn't the best year for me.. had a lot of "stuff" to contend with (don't we all), but it's a New Year now and i have an amazing future ahead... i mean... i have so much to be positive about:
  1. i have been blessed with a fabulous and stable relationship with an amazing guy.
  2. i have a supportive and extremely talented family, whom i love dearly.
  3. i have assessed all of my friendships and acquaintances and filtered out the negative influences
  4. i am sitting in the worlds comfiest position with a large cup of tea ( minus a packet of biscuits though)
  5. and i have finally stopped dwelling on what has been... and have successfully started focusing my mind on the things to come...
so yes.. one of my new habits will be to update my blog every day (if not every other day)with illustrations, thoughts, my motivations and inspirations.With hope that it helps me to get into a routine of designing something; no matter how big or small, every day.

Ultimately my intention is to make the important people in my life proud, and hope to finally quit my current erroneous retail job.... i want to feel the conviction in my heart and the passion running through my veins... something that only raw design will make me feel. So stay around, i hope you have a good look at the stuff i have done in the past... and i dare you to check up on what i get up to in the future... i promise there will be something in there for you.
this is the competition... this photo doesn't show the size or scale of the whole exhibition, but gives an insight into what to expect... lots of people, lots of great work, and lots of opportunities.

New Designers 2011

I am lucky to be one of the selected graduates to attend this event, I'm extremely excited.

the degree show!

This was my final outcome for the 2011 NTU Decorative Arts Degree Show, I am pleased with the layout, the balance of the work and it's strong identity.
Hockney inspired photo-collage of the the show, to give a peculiar air of depth and perspective.

my studio space...

getting organised...

final upholstered chair

final sampling upholstery for stool

upholstery....the initial stages

fold and secure the fabric with staples

foam seat pad, laid above the weaved support.

-the original support was slack and old, so I used hessian to weave a new support,
I secured it with industrial staples.
