The London Illustration Fair

I was so excited to exhibit for the first time last weekend at The London Illustration Fair The event was so busy with lots of lovely people stopping by to chat and say hi! I had a great time selling prints, cards pins and Patches to lots of new faces! I also enjoyed cutting out some of my signature paper cut leaves to Jungle-up my stand! If you'd like to catch me at another market I'll be at Renegade craft fair in the Truman Brewery off Brick Lane this Saturday and Sunday; the 9th & 10th of December and my final market is a Crafty Fox Night market at the Geffrye Museum on the 14th! Perfect events for shopping indie this Christmas!

Barbican Conservatory

I've been back at Print club and feeding my Screen printing addiction! I just can't get enough! This time I've been Inspired by one of my favourite spots; The Barbican Conservatory! Capturing the incredible Jungle that it is! Printed in four colours including; Acid Yellow, Neon Pink, Peacock Blue and Navy. I'd love to hear what you think or if there's a subject you'd like to see me translate into a print?!!

Christmas Markets

It's that time of year again! I'll be popping up at a couple of Creative Christmas Markets selling an array of tropical patterned products including my new zip purses. Alongside a growing selection of Risograph and Screen prints! I'm getting lots of new limited editions ready as I'm excited to be taking part in The London Illustration Fair at the Oxo Tower, Barge house on the 1st to the 3rd of December. It's an event that I've really enjoyed visiting for the past few years so I'm very happy to be involved. I'll also be at Renegade the following weekend and a late night Crafty Fox at the Geffrye Museum. I would love to see you at one or all of these pop ups so please come by and say hi! :D

Digital Patterns at the V&A

Last Saturday I was super excited to be running a 1 day visual course with 13-15 year olds at the V&A. We started off by thinking about concepts that they would like to bring to their work and then got down to drawing! The Students came up with some great ideas to visualise including Chemistry, Woodland Animals, Indian Paisley and more!

Next the drawings were scanned in over lunch so that we could jump straight on the computers and start creating our repeats. The elements were simplified into black and white pixels so that they could be easily cut away from the background and coloured in. Then we set about aligning the elements to guides and putting them into repeat.

The final stage was tiling out the design to see the repeat in action before visualising on a garment! I'm so impressed with their work, all completed in one very busy day!

I have one more teaching date coming up at the V&A at the end of November creating a digital pattern over two days, see more details here
