Here are a selection of pictures I took on a recent visit to India. When I design print & pattern here in the UK, I like to look at the elements of nature at work, for example light, texture, shadows and reflection. The photos below however, confirm that my bright colour palette is inherited from the motherland!
Edge of the Meadow makes sense of two very different cultures working together in harmony.
Unlikely Sources of Inspiration…
I have taken thousands of pictures for design inspiration!
Here are some from the “Geometric /Manmade ” category.
From top left: Wire basket, Shadow from a garden chair, Shadow of wrought iron gate and chicken wire against foliage
From top left: Wire fence against corrugated iron, manhole cover, chicken wire.
A selection of pics from my summer holiday in Northumberland.
The randomness of spacing in little barnacles,
Springy matt clusters of moss on slippery rock surfaces,
Bright fishing gear against the dark North Sea,
Enticing rock pools in clear crisp light,
Seals whiskers at the Farne Islands!
The strength of a silhouette against a raging sky,
Elements making their mark on rock surfaces.
Celebrating Digital Print Design
Digital print design is the perfect media for capturing magical realism.
The images below are Habotai silk swatches inspired by everyday objects photographed at home and whilst on holiday in Northumberland and Cornwall. When you look at something ordinary for long enough you may start to see it in a “different light”
Love to see geometric patterns and organic forms working together in harmony.

I was at Hauser and Wirth in Somerset and came across this beautiful exhibition of a perennial meadow by landscape architect Piet Oudolf.
Such a joy to see that nature really does have such a range of rich colours which are so dynamic when placed artistically.
