I recently worked with the buying team at†Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew and designed a pink rose illustration and pattern for a new line of confectionery.
Back in April I was commissioned by Zizzi to design a wall mural and coordinating wallpaper for their newly refurbished York restaurant. The building is the former Lendal Chapel dating back to 1816, and it still retains many of its original features – one being the 9 metre wide dome which took 6 days up a scaffolding tower to complete painting!
I was inspired by the history of Rowntree’s confectioners who were founded in the city in 1862, as well as the beautiful stained glass rose windows to be found at the York Minster.

Earlier this year I was asked to design a pattern for the front page of new magazine, Edible Brum, which celebrates the food related happenings in Birmingham.
Being launched in spring, I chose to create a pattern that included a selection of seasonal produce that would tie in with the launch date.
Design and layout is by Rebecca Emery of One Sugar Please.
Towards the end of last year I collaborated with New York based design studio Hoffman Creative to illustrate their 2011 Holiday Card.
Having first worked with the team on a Johnson & Johnson project in 2009, I received their beautiful holiday cards for the next 2 Christmases – which were always a collaboration with a designer or illustrator.
I was thrilled when it was decided to partner up together on their 2011 card. The brief was to utilise their letterpress header paper and create an unexpected, not strictly Christmas themed illustration that would pop out on the viewer. The end result was a bouquet of winter flora, with the focal being a Pink†Perp√©tue rose, surrounded by sprigs of the star-like†Fatsia Japonica.
