Gallery Exhibition

I am delighted to have been offered some space for my digital art at The Piece Hall Gallery in Halifax over the Christmas period. This is such a fantastic opportunity, especially over such a busy seasonal time of the year. Along with 8 other artists from October to December 2017 I’m looking to showcase bespoke […]

Autumn Fair and Texworld

As a designer it is, (I believe) important to keep up to date with the latest trends and colour palettes. Many clients want you to create designs for 6-12 months in advance so keeping abreast of the trends, what’s in, what’s out and what’s coming is key. I subscribe to WGSN, they do fantastic work […]

Framed Prints

It’s been a busy few weeks for me. Not particularly with client work as its always quiet over the Summer months with client work. No, this is the time I like to work on my own personal projects. Last summer I was working on my colouring book ‘Passion for Patterns’ but this summer I’m working […]

Supporting the Watermark Fund Calderdale Charity
