Thankyou very much to GreatGreenDreams for featuring my lampshades on their blog!

One little snowflake flew round and round....

I was asked to design the Christmas backdrop for the school I work in....and here's what i came up with! It took an age to cut out all the stars and snowflakes but when the lighting was on, the shadows made it all worthwhile!!

i ♥ my typewriter

here is a new piece i was commissioned to do....i got to base the design around a quote the commission type people gave me, and what better way to showcase a quote than type it on the good old trusty typewriter? I was abit worried about using material in my precious machine but i love the outcome...

Wedding Stationary

Thought id post a few photos of the wedding stationary in all its glory!! Im really pleased with how it came out! I designed the Wedding day invitation, the evening invitation and the order of service, which are all slightly different and unique from each other.

I designed my friends wedding invitations recently and here is the finished front cover. It tells the story of their relationship through tiny images. I'm really pleased with the way it has come together and i think the future mr and mrs griffith are pleased too. Evening invitation to follow....

This is a piece i was commissioned to do for a lovely couple who just got married last week. It is based upon the poem He Wishes For the Cloths of Heaven by W.B.Yeats, which is one of my favourites. This made the piece all the more fun to make, altho it did take ages cutting each individual letter, but i think it was worth it. Hope they like it!

Make some noise!!

Ok so, today i sent some of my work to the Noise Lab shop in Manchester, where it's being exhibited and hopefully sold! It's all very exciting, they're doing some amazing things over there; most of all creating a bit of a stir and interest around arty type stuff, which is great! It's really cool to be part of it!
Here's some of the work i sent... hope you like.
