LICENSING FOLIO

My licensing folio is now live and available to view for potential buyers, licensees and manufacturers. Please get in touch if you would like to see it.

Kids Age Range with James Ellis

Last week I visited Top Drawer at Olympia. It so inspiring to see so much newness and listen to the Retailfest seminars. Also great to catch up with James Ellis and see so many of my cards on his stand. This is a children’s age range I did for them.


NEW PRODUCT RANGE

This Summer has been lovely and saw the launch of my own product range. I ran a stall at a couple of local events and it was fabulous to receive such lovely comments and feedback. Everything in the range has been designed and made in England with products that appeal to both adults and children alike. My wholesale catalogue is now available to view online. Anyone who might be interested in stocking any of my items please get in touch for further information.


Enamel Cups

Recently I’ve been developing a few of my own products and was keen to do something for children. I was really please with how these enamel cups turned out. I love enamelware and it’s pretty much unbreakable so it’s perfect for children and a great alternative to plastic.

These cups are now available to buy in my online SHOP.

PENGUIN PUBLISHERS SUMMER EXTRAVAGANZA

A few months ago I was thrilled to be invited to the Penguin Authors and Illustrators Summer extravaganza! What an honour! The party was on a beautiful Summer’s evening at the Natural History Museum. Pineapples filled with tropical flowers, a lady on stilts with butterfly wings and a live steel drum band made for a fabulous evening.

Below is a spread of the Natural History Museum from the ‘London Search and Find’ book I did for Penguin.

NEW HUMOUR RANGE LAUNCHED WITH SCRIBBLER

So excited to see my new humour range launch online with Scribbler! It’s my first attempt at humour and if it’s a CHEESY card you’re after then DONUT look any further! The YOLKS are a bit CORNY but are top BANANA and aimed to make you happy and hungry for more!

FATHER'S DAY

With Father’s Day just a few weeks away here in the UK I thought I’d share some of the cards I did for James Ellis this year. They are in shops now and available online from his Etsy store. https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JamesEllisCom

BOOK LAUNCH DAY!

It’s almost a year since Penguin emailed me with the idea for these books. I was beyond excited. It felt like a dream commission. What a huge and overwhelming amount of work it was though and last Summer I did little else but work on these books. Very satisfying to see the finished products and I would definitely do it all again.

They are available to buy from Amazon and Waterstones.

REDBUBBLE

Recently I have opened a shop on Redbubble. It’s lovely to see my designs on so many products. I’m still finding my way around and will be adding more work soon. If you would like to have a look click here.

James Ellis Easter

i loved doing these cards. There’s nothing like when a client ask for some cards and gives you free reign to do what you want. It’s the first time I’ve done Easter patterns and such a refreshing change from Christmas.

James Ellis now producing all his Shakies cards with biodegradable glitter! These cards are solely produced in the UK and printed on paper made from wood pulp sourced from sustainable forests. The packaging is now biodegradable too!

HAPPY EASTER

Easter has felt like a long time coming this year! The weather is set to be fabulous this weekend which makes a change. A bit hot for chocolate eggs but I’m sure we’ll all get through! Here’s a few Easter cards I did for Cardmix which are out in shops now.

SHAKIES CARDS

Some new Mother’s Day Shakies cards I did for James Ellis.

You can buy them here. Also available from John Lewis and other good retailers.

TIGER TAIL

I have a range of cards I did with Cardmix called Tiger Tail. This was the first range I developed when I started freelancing. Am proud to say it’s still going strong nearly 4 years later. Here’s some new cards which are out for this Mother’s Day.

MOTHER'S DAY

I can’t believe Mother’s Day is in a few weeks. January felt like it had 100 days but now the year feels like it’s zipping by! Here’s a couple of Mother’s Day cards I did for Cardmix.

DESIGN CHALLENGES

Recently I’ve tried my hand at some of the designer challenges on Spoonflower. So far I’ve entered 3 challenges and am happy to say I’ve come in the top voted for entries each time!

I studied illustration and have worked as an illustrator for many years. Surface pattern is only something I’ve recently delved into and I absolutely love it! It’s definitely something I’m going to spend more time doing.

Below are my entries. As you can see I am enjoying working with dark grounds at the moment!

These are all available to buy as wallpaper, fabric and gift wrap over on Spoonflower.
