I'm often asked about how I design and make my cards. My sketchbooks are where I develop my ideas. At the moment I'm developing my watercolour and drawing techniques...little Sailor is a joy to draw!
Here is my illustration of a fox which became "What a Fox" and yes I do embroider all the hearts individually and cut them out by hand!

"Anarchy & Beauty"
at the National Portrait Gallery
William Morris, featuring his designs, ideas and legacy.
The self-portrait of a youthful Morris was quite a surprise and I loved this pencil drawing of Jane Morris by Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
Painting, embroidery, printed textiles, books, ceramics and social reform.
What a circle of artistic friends and influential present day admirers!
