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.

Blimey, it's only been a couple of days and I've had a call from a New York studio that wants to represent me for pattern design. Sounds wicked but alas these things take an AGE to earn anything from, so I'm not jumping for joy yet.

I've also been doing some really cute promotional mini jam pots with a label that tells you about the 'Sticky Jam Soul Nights' on Thursdays at Jam Street in Whalley Range, just down t'road.

I've been doing their branding revamp which is a lovely brief. Get yourselves down there for the vintage clothing sale on the last sunday of the month. Gorgeous cakes and tea and I've brought a lovely frock every time!
