Me and my girl..! I think we’re going to have a lot of fun together :)
I realise my blog has become home to photography and not much else..! It’s all part and parcel of easing myself back into studio practise. I’ll have some lovely things to show and tell soon.

I make no apologies for my fern fetish
Cadover Bridge to Shaugh Prior
One of my favourite places, been countless times before but never seen the bluebells out like that. The woods were gorgeous in the early evening sun.
I have relocated! I am now based on the edge of beautiful Dartmoor. Having spent a year in industry I am so excited to get my teeth into some new creative projects. Stay tuned!

Some gorgeous textures and colourings on the old stones. Carlisle Cemetery.

Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell at the Platt Hall Gallery of Costume, Manchester. She printed, he cut.
Free admission and absolutely gorgeous setting
Been gathering lots of inspiration lately! I hate to be that irritating girl in the gallery with her camera out constantly, but how fabulous are these..?
A few things I made last summer. Yes, I’m a lazy blogger! In all fairness, I didn’t have an internet connection for a few months..
Tweed moleskine cover with leather trim, lined paisley pencil case with contrasting yellow zip, canvas and leather rucksack with snaplink fastenings, cushion cover from found woven fabric and pink tweed shoulder bag. The bags were adapted from existing patterns held at my work so I can’t take credit for the whole design. Was a great opportunity to work with an industrial machine though! Many thanks to the lovely ladies that helped me out. Hoping to start selling little pouches in future.

My new year’s resolution was to draw more..! I’ve been doodling aplenty but nothing compares to working from a model.
I don’t think anything could have prepared me for the uncertainty of postgrad life! This last 6 months have been my first (ever!) outside of education. I’m working full time at the moment and trying to keep as creative and true to myself as possible. Aside the art I’ve started belly dancing, kick boxing and playing the fiddle to satiate my need to learn! I have so may half formed projects, concepts and skills I want to explore.. So in the meanwhile, I’ve written lists. Lots of lists.

I’ve been featured on a site dedicated to sustainable design..!
Some really exciting work, and just a glimpse of some of the fantastic work on show at New Designers 2013. If you get the chance, get down there!
