Say thank you to someone special with these lovely little gems! Each of these heart-shaped handbag charms is made from a vintage Japanese kimono fabric and has a suede tassel detail. I love the vibrancy of the red and gold. One side of the heart uses a stylised blossom design and the other side uses a butterfly motif. Use it as a keyring or handbag charm on your favourite bag.

I created this print a while ago for my Spoonflower shop. I wanted to create a traditional damask print that had some fun hidden elements. I love traditional folk designs and feel that their images lend themselves perfectly to being incorporated into a damask print, so chose a simple bird motif. On closer look, you can see there are quite a few birds nestled within the design. How many can you see?

I recently designed a print for one of the Spoonflower design challenges which was called Wild Grasses. I was inspired by the delicate grasses found in the countryside and included butterflies, dragonflies and bees amongst the foliage.

I'm always looking for new product ideas for my store and the latest additions are these fabric key fob wristlets. They are made from Japanese-inspired cottons and come in bright colours that make them easy to find.

The latest Spoonflower design challenge is to design a print to go on a paddle board for the Red Paddle Co, and the theme is World Waterways so I chose to design a starfish print. I love their graphic shape and chose a pleasing colour palette of coral, turquoise and grey. The winner of this challenge will receive a paddle board worth 1,299 dollars, featuring their winning design. Not bad!

I love an elephant design and so I decided to create these cute prints for my Etsy store. Each one is printed onto a lovely thick watercolour paper, gift wrapped in pink tissue paper and sent in a hard-backed envelope. You can also add an optional gift message and have it sent directly to its recipient if you wish. These prints would make a great print for a baby's bedroom wall.

I had a lot of fun designing this collection of elephant prints for my Spoonflower shop! Each print has been coloured to co-ordinate with each other and they come in a selection of background colours and scales.

I'm feeling fruity today! Celebrating this warmer weather with some happy fruit designs. These prints were each hand-drawn on the computer and include watermelons, apples, pears and pineapples in a selection of fresh colours. All can all be found in my Spoonflower shop where they can be bought on a variety of fabrics by the yard, or you can buy them as ready-made items.

Whilst living in Japan I grew a great appreciation for all things Japanese. This inspired me to design an art print which encompassed all may favourite things from kimonos and geta to sushi and sake, and many more. This illustration is printed onto a lovely thick watercolour paper which you can buy through my Etsy store.
