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.

my car


Ah little Doris, covered in flowers. I designed and made the vinyls for my little japanese car. Mocked by men and fan's of Top Gear.

Well they can laugh on, this beauty has never failed me, it costs £25 in petrol a month, is super economical & green and never fails to make people smile, or indeed laugh.

Unfortunately my long suffering husband is in the construction industry and once had to use my car for work. He arrived on site to rounds of applause, whistles and laughter. At least he saw the funny side.

I can print any kind of car stickers in lots of different patterns, they're not permanent but totally weather proof. Email me if you'd like more info on pimping your car/bike/walls.

I like the flowers - very cute! My other half once had to borrow my pink mobile phone - it raised a few eyebrows in his business meeting!

Cute car! I've got a Smart Car so am firmly in the little and slightly silly car club! The flowers are great - I've often thought about having some vinyls done for mine.....

Yes - there's no point in taking yourself too seriously. Keep it simple and fun!
