Summer has finally reached the UK and boy are we hot in the city of London! Summer and Autumn weddings have to be my favourite! I’ve been working on a lot of custom pieces for the last few months and it is great! But also I wanted to create an other piece for my ready – made collection. I created these pieces with my hand illustrated typography and painted watercolour flowers for summer. What a perfect way to invite and greet your guests – with a bit of hand made love.

2013 is going to be an exciting year!
Apart from my ongoing freelance design work and illustrations, I’m involved in a few exciting projects from launching a product to mentoring.

The Living Furniture Project founded by Alastair Sloan is an important one for 2013 and I’m so excited to be involved!
The Living Furniture Project based in London and undertaking an amazing challenge! Taking unwanted furniture and renovate it in a unique style and employing homeless people to create these piece.

There is a large number of homeless people on the streets and most are found in these difficult situations for reasons you wouldn’t even think of. But The Living Furniture project is about giving people a chance and getting their lives back on track, having focus and doing something rewarding. For the first set of furniture The Living Furniture Project is partnering up with Rupert Blanchard, an experienced furniture maker who will be curator for this first collection!

All the furniture will then be exhibited and available to purchase! The profit will then go on to help create the next set of furniture and help continue to fund The Living Furniture project to help homeless people get back on track.

As a volunteer mentor I will be working closely with the first apprentices, guiding, teaching them valuable workshop skills and helping them create the first collection together as a team.

For me this is going to be one of the most emotional projects I have been involved in, but I am super excited, ready to get started and hope to continue the future of change with this amazing and challenging project.

But we now need your help!
With 64 days remaining, we need your support to help fund The Living Furniture Project. The goal is to raise £3000
your donations will help fund for the launched collection, workshop, tool, materials, but most importantly help pay our apprentices £8.55 per hour, receive an employer reference, classroom and on-the-job training.

So lets makes a change for 2013 click here to help fund The Living Furniture Project and for more information.

Hearing a lot of people talking about situations that has happened in the past and how it’s affected their path today, really reminded of situations that I have been in. Regret is not something I like to carry around. It eats inside you, no one else can see it or feel it and it’s not nice, and when you see it affecting someone, I just want to get the positives flowing of the present and the future. There is only up.

So to everyone that has regretted something that has happened or regretted something that has affected where you are today, you got to ‘stop living in regret, it’s not over yet!’ live long, live strong and live forward ~ Enjoy the ride.

As autumn turns into the icy winter nights I am getting as many pieces into finished ones. I love my black pens but I wanted to create something with a bit more colour injected into it to give this winter a warm feeling.

So here is something a bit on the colourful side using pen and watercolour to create The Hummingbird. I’m getting into watercolour and I think there is more to come.

Today was a beautiful day in London. The sun is out and the clouds are high.
and I have finished a new addition to the Wedding Wonderland series. I have also started something new for the Christmas season – I’m not sure if it will turn out as well as I want it to be but here is to an other month of creativity and daydreaming!

Here is a sneaky glimpse into the photo shot of my hand illustrated wedding invitation + RSVP and Save the Date as part of the Wedding Wonderland series.

Bear & Deer in the Woods – Richmond Park

30th ∙ September ∙ 2012

We are just going through the photos from yesterday’s shoot and to our surprise we had a visitor in one of the shots!
So I just had to share this with you.

We went to Richmond Park and it is amazing there, you almost lose the feeling of the hustle and bustle of London and become alone in the forest.  So we found some trees whilst photographing Bear In The Woods, we had squirrels running around us, up and across trees and throwing nuts and the spiky nut shells at us! It was really funny! Then an amazing deer came up behind us nibbling on the nuts and shells.

See how amazing the deer moves behind us, it was just amazing. Later on we heard a herd of stag (male deers) calling, they were truly amazing!

Watercolour Splash Illustration

29th ∙ September ∙ 2012


The first day of the weekend and we decided to go for an other photo shot for my illustrations. There are a few ideas I have but I’m not sure if they are heading to the store just yet. So here is a possible one. Hand drawn triangle with watercolour. Representative of the summer feeling as it disappears and autumn wild winds comes in.
