You can now order my designs on a variety of fabric through Next State Print! Go to www.nextstateprint.com - Fabric Creator - Select From Library and you can search for my designs. There is a variety of fabric you can choose from and only 1m minimums per order. Their quality is second-to-none! I use Next State Print for all my fabric printing and can't recommend them highly enough.

Surtex NYC 2017!

I participated in my first surface design trade show this year at Surtex in New York City. I was part of a great group of artists, some who I was lucky to meet (pictured above Jookiku, me, Trosko Designs and Lemonni). It was a very busy 3 days but I learnt so much from buyers and other artists I was fortunate to meet. I'm looking forward to working with new buyers shortly!!

Surtex work featured on Make It In Design Blog!

I was thrilled to be featured on the Make It In Design blog in the lead up to Surtex. You can read the blog post here...

LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU AT SURTEX!

So I have decided to attend Surtex as I know I will gain so much from being there in person meeting buyers, agents and other designers. Please come by Booth 3017 and say hello! I would love to meet you!

Make it in Design Summer School 2016

I decided to join all 3 modules of the MIID Summer School 2016 and have just completed the first creative brief for each. It has really made me try new things and I had a lot of fun expanding my style. This is my favourite from the Beginner's Brief "French Riviera". #makeitindesign #summerschool2016 #escapefrenchriviera

Make It In Design eCourses

I have just completed Modules 2 and 3 of the Make It In Design eCourses (I completed Module 1 late 2015) and have found them to be superb! Here is my typography testimonial for the courses.

MATS Bootcamp May Assignment - A Tarot Card!

The Make Art That Sells Bootcamp assignment for May was to design a tarot card corresponding to your birth month (in my case, June, which is The Chariot). Here is my take on it :)

As a special feature, the MATS A course had a live review opportunity in conjunction with Uppercase Magazine to design a cover for the 2nd edition of the Surface Pattern Design Guide. This is the cover I submitted! How great would it be to have external wallpaper :) #makeartthatsells
