It was a pleasure to illustrate these bee tees for J.Crew as part of their Sloane Square store opening. Partnering with Buglife, a charity that supports the conservation of bees, J.Crew wanted to raise awareness about the importance of bees to our ecosystem.
I illustrated four bees, each used on a 'garments for good' tee plus floral elements for use on seed packets and honey jars.
I produced ceramic bumble bee jewellery trays for the stores launch and was commissioned to make bespoke ceramic ornaments for sale across all of their London Stores. The ornament sets feature hand placed bees and flowers, finished with gold toppers and long black ribbons, gift wrapped and boxed for the client.
While I was working on this wonderful project J.Crew came to visit me in the studio. You can see the STUDIO TOUR HERE.

Debbie Bliss, renowned knitwear designer known for her luxury yarns and patterns, commissioned five canine illustrations to feature on mugs alongside the launch of her new book, Woolly Woofers - Knitwear designs for dogs of all shapes and sizes.
I illustrated the pooches, Fair Isle Furbaby, Puppy Polo, Le Chien a la Mode and Good Boy Gansey in their winter warmers, paying careful attention to make sure the knit was correct! Quite a challenge for a non-knitter.
You can buy the mugs at DEBBIE BLISS online or from her gorgeous shop on Orford Road, Walthamstow.

I love to create things for weddings.
I've been commissioned by lots of lovely couples and their friends and families to create save the dates, invites, name cards, favours, table plans, signage, ceramic wedding gifts, and even a veil or two!
I enjoy each and every stage of the process, whether it be design and illustration, making (screen printing, ceramic favours, hand cut paper bunting) or dressing a venue.
My 'Once Upon A Time' story illustrations are a unique and meaningful gift for those who are looking for something truly personal for their loved ones. The illustration is woven together from details provided by the couples nearest and dearest, capturing their story together so far. The piece is often fired onto a ceramic bowl or plate, or framed as a print.
