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.

City Art Gallery



Just a quick not to say I went to see the Da Vinci drawings at the City Art Gallery this morning and they're well worth a look. Shoot me for saying I didn't 'get' the smushy smudgy ones but the others were just incredible!!

There's a really beautiful exhibition next door by Paul Morrison for all you nature lovers. He does these amazing bold graphic botanical paintings. Unfortunately the gallery was closed due to a high level of hobnobbing this lunchtime so I'll have to go back. How annoying is it to close of galleries for private functions grrrr.

Thanks for your comment, glad it's not just me! Your trip to Manchester was much more cultured than mine, I will have to go and have a look at these exhibitions (and the knickers in top shop) kate x
