Hipster Lumberjacks

As part of the Make Art That Sells Bootcamp design challenge for the month of April I had to illustrate Lumberjacks! I must say that this was definitely out of my comfort zone and it forced me to draw and illustrate faces; something that is far away from my well known subject matter and style. I started with doodle style sketches and drawings in order to start to try and capture the essence and feel of these new age Woodsmen. These are my first quick sketches and attempts at drawing some quirky looking Lumberjacks.

I gradually found my way and a style that was mine and so the drawing continued until I had illustrated 5 Hipster style Lumberjacks that I was happy with.

The next step and part of the MATS Bootcamp challenge was to use these Lumberjacks to decorate ornaments. I decided to go in a slightly different direction and used four of my Lumberjacks to decorate Bowling Pins.

I enterred my Lumberjacks into the 2016 Cushion Design competition on  Wraptious

The cushions are available to purchase for a limited time. They are digitally printed on Vegan Suede and Handmade in the UK, with your choice of coloured backing and zip. Why not check out the Wraptious website and whilst you are there please Like and Share my cushion as this earns me a vote to get to the finals of their 2016 Cushion Design Competition in the search for new up and coming designers :)  


Pretty in Pink

As you all know my Field of Flowers textile design was selected in the Top 100 designs from over 800 entries for the Spoonflower Fabric 8 competition. This is an annual textile design competition that is open to designers all around the world and this year it was partnered with Moda Fabrics. 

I chose to enter the dark colourway of my Field of Flowers textile design even though I loved the light pink colourway as well. Here is an image showing product mockups for some Home Decor soft furnishings with the light pink colour scheme of my Top 100 design. This colourway even though it is the same pattern has a much softer appearance and delicate feel to it and would be ever so lovely in a girls bedroom and it is in stark contrast to the bolder dark colour version.

I just want to share this image with you. I created some product mockups for a few home decor products using my Field of Flowers Textile Design that I entered into the Spoonflower Fabric 8 textile design competition for Moda fabrics. I hope you like the way my fabric design will look when it is made into some gorgeous soft furnishings, cushions and quilts. 

Home Decor Collection

I am finally finding some time to write this overdue blog post to show you my final Home Decor Collection. These are my favourite pieces that I designed for a home decor collection called Le Reve.

This collection consists of home decor concept designs and mockups in different mediums. I have selected the pieces which I personally think would make a fabulous collection to decorate your home. My Le Reve Collection has beautiful products made from glass, ceramics, fabric and wood substrates that are adorned with my surface pattern designs with a consistent colour palette. 

You would be able to decorate a whole room with these gorgeous pieces that are elegant and stylish. From cushions to quilts, vases to bowls and platters not to mention the ultimate tea pot and wonderful lacquered tea chest to store your favourite teas. I hope you enjoy seeing my Home Decor Designs.

This is my first fully designed and curated home decor collection that incorporates my work across many products and substrates. I am currently working on a new Home Decor Collection which is for the kitchen. If you like my style please contact me to discus custom design work, collaborations and licensing opportunities for Home Decor Products.
