I could not be any more pleased with my business cards by graphic designer Ry Swinney. He totally understood what I wanted and delivered with this gorgeous design. The images used are my illustrative work, my photography shoot and one of my toile/ fabric samples.

I completed my photo shoot today for the RGU Grays degree show catalogue and the brochure that will be sent out during the RGU Grays fashion show as well as taken down to the New Designers 2012 exhibition. More photos coming soon!
My sister (Kelly) came to visit my studio last week. She is an artist herself and took a couple of photographs of my hectic desk. I absolutely love them, they were such a fun surprise and they look really cool.
I have been experimenting with cut-offs from my linen to create some dye samples. Neutral, earthy colours compliment the simplicity within my collection. I also played about with pale and brighter colours, but these are the colours that came through for me.
I’ve been discussing with tutors the fabric I want to use this year, and I wanted a really high quality linen. Funds are a bit low at the moment (aren’t they always!) but my sisters lovely in-laws dug out this absolutely perfect linen. It was starched, ironed, folded and tied up in ribbon, made into a beautiful parcel and hidden away in a spare drawer for over eighty years. It’s about the same age as my Grandad! So I have two lovely parcels, one from Evelyn and one from Bob, which they recieved from their mothers. I’m so amazed at their generosity, and grateful!
I’ve given them a wash and I’m just waiting for them to dry so I can start cutting pieces to make my collection. I love this fabric – it’s practical, so despite it’s age it is still in fantastic condition.
