Here’s whats influencing me this week for fresh ideas and inspiration.
4. Close up of Sculpture by Fiona Designs
As well as enjoying a very relaxing Sunday, I spent some time out in my workshop yesterday. Although I wasn’t making anything, I was sorting a few things out, having a tidy up, and photographing some new work in the garden. I often have days like this where I get sudden urges to jot down lots of new ideas and developments.
You may have guessed by now that I am inspired by all things natural and organic, especially trees and bark. I put together this little inspirational mood board of colour, texture and pattern using images from Flickr.
I can’t wait to start making new things!
I dug out some of my sketchbooks and inspiration boards from my portfolio the other day. Just sifting through them all has given me the ‘get up and go’ to start making new work. I’ll be sharing more pages of my sketchbooks soon so look out for that if you’re interested. These are some of my own photographs, mostly close up details of patterns, textures and colours in the natural world, as well as landscapes and some prints & drawings.
Above is a collection of inspirations by Bitsandbobbins, with baskets of her work. I love all the bright colours.

And finally here’s a very inspirational way for displaying your inspiring bits and bobs. Take a look at Maya Luna’s blog for instructions on how she did it.
