Way back in 2019 I created a design for the Spoonflower Design Challenge - Halloween Embroidery. I've been thinking about turning it into a complete collection (as I only had 2 Halloween designs) for a while and finally got around to finishing it off a couple of weeks ago 🙌. So without further ado, I present Halloween Hysteria - a spooky, fun and vibrant collection.

We're a month into Spring. How is it the end of April already?!! Anyway I've just released a new pattern in my Spoonflower shop - "Spring Woodland Wildlife". It's a fun pattern featuring blossoming trees and woodland wildlife in a fresh, soft colour palette - perfect for kid's clothes, soft furnishings and bags.
As I mentioned in an earlier post I opened a shop with Woven Monkey and so I am slowly uploading my existing designs to the platform. It's an interesting process because it has made me revisit some designs that I'd sort of forgotten about. Geo Wheels is one of the first surface pattern designs that I created, originally with white, aqua/mint and red backgrounds. I couldn't resist playing around with more colours and loved the results with lilac, mustard and teal backgrounds so these are now available at Woven Monkey and also in my Redbubble shop.
Face masks are now live on Redbubble. There are three size options: kids, small and standard. Here are just a few of the available designs. Head over to my store and take a look at all the options.
I had an idea for a Skillshare class about creating a "recipe" for mixed media art that would enable beginners to get great results more easily. I decided to try out my recipe digitally and it was while I was doing that, that I came up with my new art peice "Golden Raindancer". I knew that I wanted to depict a dancer and maybe some sort of rain. The original work was far too busy and I didn't like where it was heading so I decided to take the dancer and place it on a much simpler background. I love the combination of red and black and gold. "Golden Raindancer" is now available in my Society6 and Redbubble shops.
I like bold patterns, florals, foliage and bright colours.
