About Me and Design Rocks!

My photo
Hello and welcome. Here's a bit about me: I've spent my childhood and a lot of my life traveling. Places, colour and pattern are my biggest inspiration. I've surfed & lived in a tent in Cornwall. Sketched my way round Morocco. Designed from an antique textile archive in Manhattan (dream job!). Styled and written for an interiors magazine on the sleepy island of Malta. Now I live in Manchester, UK, where I run Design Rocks greetings cards. Whilst in Manhattan I amassed a large collection of vintage textiles. These were used as inspiration for my first card range, Vintage Rocks! We sell wholesale so if you'd like a brochure visit the website or get in touch. Thanks for stopping by.

Charlotte's butterfly

My lovely friend Charlotte is an artist and art therapist who runs a great company called Fresh Canvas. I did her business i.d, logo and creative input for her website so check it out.

She has some great work, one little project she did was these little origami butterflies. They start of as a sheet of paper with lots of personal visual references, then they're folded and framed. So simple and beautiful and easy to do at home! You could have them in multiples and different sizes too.

That's funny - I just said the same. You were last seen under a pile of pattern!

One day the caravan will be mine. Can you still buy tinned potatoes I wonder?
