I designed all the prints and graphics for Kite Clothing’s new S/S 23 collection. I had a lot of fun working on this, and it’s looking great on the website. The theme was ‘Making Memories’ and some of the inspiration for this collection came from personal experiences. I’ve picked out some of my personal favourites from the spring collection below. Summer product will also be available soon!
I’ve also added these designs to my portfolio, you can check it out by going to the portfolio tab at the top of this page.
I was invited to a spontaneous paint night recently. I just got back from a surf trip in Costa Rica so I was feeling sea inspired… This wave went through many transformations! It took about 2 hrs but I could have easily carried on for another 10 if the class didn’t finish, haha. I wanted to suggest a fast moving ‘barrelling’ wave. It’s an amazing feeling when you are swimming or surfing and the wave closes out over you but you can still see through it. Maybe the essence of fish swimming too alongside the curve of the wave.
I might go back into this painting to make it more of a realistic wave, but I am enjoying how it looks in my bedroom right now. If anyone would like to purchase this painting, please message me directly using the contact tab at the top of my website.
I designed a logo for 3 Peaks Rentals in Sun Peaks Ski Resort, BC, Canada. The branded t-shirts are in, and they look great! Here are a couple of pictures to showcase the new design, modelled by the lovely Gabs, who currently works for this company. This logo also features on the company’s website and has been used for other marketing purposes.
I’m really happy with how my wall mural has turned out for 3 Peaks Rentals! I now have some professional photos to show you. I have already posted about this painting but I feel these photos are worth talking about as they bring it to life and show the scale. The wall was 18ft high and had to be painted using scaffolding. You can see the process I went through in older posts below. I hope you like the pictures!
When I was working as an in-house print designer for Kite, I designed a print inspired by trees local to the head office in Dorset. Kite teamed up with The Tree Council and I got to plant some trees which was a great day out and a fun project to be a part of. The products that were created through this collaboration raised money for this charity.
I’ve had the amazing opportunity to design a logo for a rental company in a ski resort in Canada, BC. I have gained a lot inspiration from living and working in Canada for the last few months and this particular ski resort is so beautiful. I am very lucky to be experiencing such a wonderful place. This logo is going to be on the company’s branded t-shirts and hats as well as their website and other marketing purposes. See pics below.
It’s the festive season when little things around you remind you of all things Christmas. Here are some hand painted robins! Robins are one of my favourite festive birds because their red breast is always noticed amongst the trees and holly bushes. I love waking up in the mornings and hearing the birds, especially when it’s winter and snowing outside but I am cosy in bed with a hot chocolate. I am definitely a summer beach girl but winter certainly has it’s perks. Have a lovely Christmas everybody.
P.s. If you want to see more robins…
I have also created some robins for baby fashion. Instead of red and brown, they are pink! I created these designs for a lovely brand called ‘Kite’ in the south of the UK. They focus on being sustainable and environmentally friendly. My entire collection with Kite for Autumn Winter 2022 is available to view now at kite-clothing.com.
I am in love with how this print I designed has turned out in Kite’s new collection for AW22. It depicts some very happy polar bears playing with the snow and having a little snow ball fight! I remember this was the first baby sample that came into the office when I was their in-house designer and it was the cutest thing! See it pictured below. It’s hard to pick my favourite print from this collection but this one definitely stands out for me.
