vintage designs

I am in love with Fossil tins, as seen on I would buy a watch/wallet just to get the tin. I am going to start a collection one day.

I have created some designs that I think would look great on tins for Fossil, I am working on getting in touch with the company to produce designs for them for real...

Mothers Day competition

I have started work on ideas for the new Tigerprint Mothers Day compeition

I have used a stencil that I have painted on in the past, the messy letters create a nice effect.

Let me know what you think. All feedback is appreciated!

I love the stencilled letters enlarged, this would make a great print on its own

Stylistic Gallery

I have just applied to show my work on a new gallery website, due to launch next month.

Check out for free membership.

Looking forward to next month and hoping to see my work online and prints available to this space!

illustration diary


Day One...I got a parking ticket! how annoying after only being 4 minutes late back to the car. Evil traffic warden...anyway, it inspired me to start my illustration diary.

The stripes from the bag the ticket was in have been used as a border. Yellow & black reminded me of buzzing bees round a honey pot.

It is very hot today in the midlands, scorchio! as my dad would say. I've spent the rest of the day in the garden, the birds are singing, the sky is blue. Perfecto.

Hearts in design

Heart shaped gifts for the home are in all the shops at the moment. I love these hearts made from cut out maps from Etsy online (Map Heart Garland)

The best things in life come in three's... My three hearts are taken from larger designs I have created based on the 50's - 00's. I used these as part of my a final project in my degree.
