Last Friday I took a day out with Megan from Megan Ashwell Designs and visited the New Designers 2014 exhibition at The Business Design Centre in London. Myself and Megan both met at a local fair a couple of years ago, and it turned out we had very similar interests and passions. I now own […]
There are many sources of inspiration for my work, predominantly natural findings. Is it weird that I find old, rusty, weathered and distressed surfaces interesting? The tree images above are all of different types and stages of rust. I love the textures and colours, although I think it’s the patterns I find the most appealing. […]
Browsing images of inspiration in my Pinterest Boards, a few recent ‘pins’ have really stood out and caught my eye.
