All my work, including the lampshades, cushions, silk scarves and greeting cards, begins with the art. I paint a series of pieces for a show, which explore a particular theme or idea and then let them breathe and find their place for a while. Only then do I consider which paintings might translate well into other products. Why have art just on your walls?! You can wear it, shine a light through it and even sit on it.
My new collection of homewares is very much influenced by my work as an interior designer, so I have carefully designed a mix of flowers, birds and a graphic abstract to give people the opportunity to create quite easily a variety of eclectic looks to suit their own taste. Look out for tips about how to mix the various pieces on the individual product pages.
