Any sneak previews of what we can expect next from you? I’d love to apply some of my work to fabric and ceramics. I’ve had a few goes with fabric and it proved to be a lot harder than I expected. None have worked so far, so no sneak previews I’m afraid, but watch this space.


comes from this era. I also love Scandinavian design and European folk art. At the moment, plant life and animals seem to inspire many of my prints.


How did you find your style? Has it changed? All my prints begin in my sketchbook and I just draw what I see or what’s in my head, so the style is just naturally what happens. Inevitably I’m influenced by my many years of being a graphic designer, so I think that’s where my graphic shapes come from. I also love pattern and always try to incorporate it into my designs.

How do you get the word out about your work? My promotion is quite sporadic: I blog, although probably not as often as I should, and I find Flickr and Twitter generate interest in my work. I’ve also been lucky enough to have been featured on some of the popular design blogs, which generated a large amount of interest in my work.


What is your main goal for the next 6 - 12 months? Over the next 12 months, I’d definitely like to have a go at proper screen- printing on a larger scale. The Gocco is wonderful, but it does restrict me to a certain size and quality of print.


Finally, as this is our winter edition, what’s your favourite seasonal tradition? I absolutely love Christmas. My favourite tradition has to be Christmas Eve: it’s so magical especially with small children – we always leave Father Christmas a mince pie and a glass of brandy and not forgetting the carrots for those hard working reindeer!
