A Little Catch Up…

20 December 2011

Well, it’s been a busy few months, and I have fallen a bit behind with my blog posts,  so here’s a brief update as to what’s been happening!

Endangered Species solo show

We had wonderful opening at Yorkshire Sculpture park, where the amazing Freddie Robins opened the show, and they served Parmesan clouds and mog cat mini cakes!
The show is on right through to the end of February so make sure you go and see it! www.ysp.co.uk

Sample sale madness
We had our yearly sample sale where we sold off seconds and samples and had some Christmas mulled Wine… THANK YOU to everyone who made it here especially if you had to queue on the Thursday  Evening.

Elle Deco British Design Awards

Also, as you all know, I proudly won the Elle Decoration Designer of the year Award last year! So this year it was my job to make the awards in my own style for the new winners!


And to finish off, we have two members of staff leaving- Imogen and Kristina (pictured above!) our Web and Press manager is leaving at the end of the year….. Thank you both so so much for all your hard work throughout the year, I have loved every minute of working with you…. 



Work in Progress for Yorkshire Sculpture Park

21 September 2011
 This November I am having a show at Yorkshire sculpture park, (it’s opening on the 19th of November)
I’ve been asked to design some limited edition prints for the show, as well as a collection of original drawings.
I thought I’d show you all a sneak preview of what I’m working on…..
 A bear with a hairy chest, above.
 Birds and Squirrels
 Polar bear in Fairisle jumpers.
 Lovely lady
 Birds nests
 More creatures in Fairsles
 Foxes with long tails
 Peeping Tom
 Plants in pyjamas
and a bunny in pj’s
These pieces will all be framed and for sale throughout the space, as well as a knitted tree installation, creatures and lots of work in the shop.
 It’s a new thing for me, as I normally do these type of drawings before I make a creature, but never normally show people them!
hope you like them.
