Show time!!! - Spring Fair

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to visit Spring Fair 2013, which is an annual exhibition at the NEC showcasing new products across many genres from greetings cards and gifts, to toys, stationery, homeware and kitchen products. It was a great few days seeing all the products that will appear in UK stores over the next 12 months and I was delighted that Kitchen Craft were there exhibiting a number of new ranges I have designed for them.

Photographs aren't permitted in the exhibition, but exhibitors are allowed to photograph their own stands, so these images are taken from the Kitchen Craft Facebook page.

Above is a sneaky peak at three new summer ranges designed for the Cool Movers brand and below is an exclusive look at my new Christmas design! More to come on all of these ranges later in the year!!!

Splashing about with paint!

I've been very busy over the last few months working on a variety of new designs for products that will be released in 2013. I was particularly delighted when it transpired that for several of the briefs I would need to get my paint-brushes out! I haven't painted for quite some time, but got back into it really quickly.

The cats and dogs shown aren't among the designs chosen by the client, but I quite liked them, so thought I would turn them into a brand new pattern just for fun!

It was an absolute treat painting cats, as they are my favourite animal - such beautiful creatures with very individual personalities!

As well as the cats and dogs, I also painted some other animals as part of the brief and these will be revealed later in the year!
