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.

hello blossom


I actually hyperventilated when I saw this gorgeous pom pom blossom. Then bizarrely when I took a photo it went weird and created an almost painting effect. Even more beautiful.

Copy and set it to your desktop - It could be raining next week and you can look at this instead of out the window!

it does have a painterly effect to it... something I am always striving for on the watercolor paper :)

I know - it's like you couldn't have painted it like that if you tried. It was a weird camera blip!

I love happy accidents!
