As Seen in Liberty.....

Thornback and Peel
On a recent trip to Liberty in London, I noticed new additions within the soft furnishings department from Thornback and Peel and Bluebellgray. I love the simplicity of Thornback and Peel's design portfolio. They print colourful, detailed illustrations upon white backgrounds to ensure that the focus is centred upon the print. I feel that this is an effective strategy which has resulted in the development of a successful, signature aesthetic. Conversely, I love the bright, painterly, gestural floral designs that feature upon Bluebellgray's array of interior products. The eyecatching, beautiful prints would definitely serve to enhance a domestic space.

Mr Wingate Prints

Jen Rowland

These are a few of the works that really appealed to me on a recent trip to Pulse at Earls Court, London. I was drawn to their individual, illustrative styles and use of bright, bold colour which enabled their work to really stand out.

Product Placement

Here's a couple of examples of how some of my colourful, abstracted designs could be used to decorate a range of interior products; cups, plates, bowls etc.
