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.
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.

London this summer is vibrant with colour, action and pattern. A break from the countryside drew my attention to manmade patterns and movement in the city. We were too busy dashing between numerous art galleries to pause and sketch so now I can’t wait to start drawing and composing from all these rhythmic shapes and colours.
Sonya Delaunay at the Tate Modern and the Summer Exhibition 2015 at the Royal Academy were a treat for colour fanatics!
