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.
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.

Mesmerising kinetic reflections ..nature creating it’s own dancing surface patterns
At home, inspiration is always where I least expect it. This board features a series of pics I took with my i phone whilst washing up. All mundane tasks deserve a splash of colour!
Perhaps this was the catalyst for my bright tea towel prints?
Inspiration from the kitchen sink
Exploring textures and shapes from natural forms with a playful colour palette.
Art Deco Pattern Inspiration from The Imperial Hotel Prague.
Art Deco Style
Criss crossing lines and clean colourful geometric shapes make striking patterns in both colour and shades of grey ( see Prague trams below )When it comes to creating new colourways, the golds, deep teals and neutrals in this nostalgic colour palette may sit well next to Pantone’s colour of the year Marsala. I would be tempted to add some bright accents in there too!
