China blue baroque cushion

This is a 22inch cotton cushion cover, my baroque print and overdyed with china blue dye. Complete with piping AND a zip!


Experimenting with applying my imagery to different surfaces.
My clocks were produced from my own photographs, converted to vector files and laser cut from 3mm acrylic sheet.
20 GBP each.

Hemp cushions

Digitally printed labels.

"3JD's" "Crossbird"
Both images have been digitally printed onto 60%Hemp/40%Ramie for an eco-friendly option.

Baroque and iron!

Such a mundane thankless task....ironing!
But with such a beautiful baroque design how could you resist?

My baroque fabric

Front of linen cushion.


This is the first of my baroque type fabrics made into cushions, the idea is to get the viewer to look closer, that there is more to see than meets the eye. Similar to us as complex human beings!
This design encompasses symbols and elements which hold huge significance in my life. Ie;
The beautiful female figure is my best friend who holds me up on a regular basis throughout my life. (My initials are in her hand), a sillouette of a Lily represents my gorgeous little granddaughter of the same name. The heart shaped grenade is a symbol for my favourite band Greenday. The list goes on but just see what else you can see.

Wrap around aprons

I am wishing to start producing wrap around aprons from gorgeous fabrics and am on the look out for a pattern similar to this dress....Any ideas?

Wallpaper From The 70's

Remembering back to going to stay at Grandad's house for holidays...the wallpaper in the spare bedroom was acid/ popculture type 1970's paper and if you stared long enough shapes and faces would begin to appear, quite trippy really.
This is the idea and inspiration for my baroque designs.

Have a look at the colour lovers blog for more inspiration.
