Inspiration can be hard to find when you actively set out to go and find it. Have you ever experienced seeing an everyday object in a completely new way? Well that happened to me this morning and instead of thinking “well that’s nice” I picked up a pen and sketchbook and began to draw…
As I started to wash up in the kitchen this morning, the stopper on the soap bottle caught my eye. I noticed a beautiful textural pattern. I began to draw the linear texture. The drawing process unveiled why it caught my eye. Whilst drawing I noticed how the texture was sometimes linear, sometimes pointed at the end or curved. The lines varied in thickness and length, the rhythms were craftily interrupted by delicate shafts of light. This stopper holds a wealth of inspiration for a whole series of new geometric patterns. My designs are created using photography, but aided by drawing. Drawing unveils the inspiration on how to create exciting patterns.
As Pantone have named green the colour of the year for 2017 I am posting a gloriously green blog about our quest for wild garlic pesto! Every Spring we venture to the blue bell woods to collect the leaves of young wild garlic flowers to make this delicious pasta pesto treat…
Here is glimpse into our morning, followed by a delicious lunch!
The sky was so dark and grey this morning I decided to pick out our vibrant yellow sky blossom scarf to make a cheery post on Instagram. Whilst it was draped on a chair I mistook it for a ray of sunshine. A simple solution for bringing a dose of spring colour indoors!
Our double sided cotton scarves lined with chiffon, allow you to accessorise well into spring, wrapping up for cooler days, or adding a bright accent to an outfit.Each print is carefully designed with a lot of attention given to the overall composition so that it shows off the print to the max when it is worn.
The exclusive one off print makes it a unique, luxurious gift, or a special treat for yourself. Below is a collage of pictures revealing a glimpse into where my inspiration came from…mainly the glorious Hampshire countryside.
