I’m lucky enough to be able to exhibit my Little Homes collection at the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair 2015 with Huddersfield University! I’m really excited to show my work again, and it’s now available to buy at a special prices for GNCCF! (details below), as it was well received at New Designers 2015.
Little Homes is a collection of illustrative layered artworks inspired by my own personal experience of home and quintessentially British upbringing. Exploring the idea of home through illustration and pattern, I’ve taken my illustrations one step further, creating intricate layers of printed and laser cut art. Each scene is inspired by different characteristics of buildings and places I’ve once called home and built up using nostalgic memories.
Inspired by the tall townhouses of London and the idyllic high streets of Hertfordshire. The patisserie draws inspiration from sunny spring day walks around town, browsing shop and, of course, tea and cake!
Inspired by my friend Jack’s home, this cute two up two down is hidden behind the wild garden! You have to battle through the overgrown plants to find the garden path leading to the front door!
Inspired by my family home, up in the rural borderlands of Northumberland. The scene draws inspiration from the old farmhouse building and surrounding farm that boasts rolling countryside.
Inspired by childhood summers spent by the sea. The ombre of blues and nostalgia of the colourful seaside town, with streets lined with bunting, Ice-cream parlours and of course the Fish + Chip shop!
Inspired by day trips out exploring and my childhood town of Bath. Somerset House is inspired by the Georgian architecture and summer evenings watching hot air balloons rise above the city from the garden.
