Painted from the garden


A section of a large textile repeat inspired by the native foliage collected from my garden and around the farm yard. Wattles, grevillea, hakea, eucalyptus, callistemon and lilly pillies all make an appearance in this watercolour design.

Misty morning

The farmyard was shrouded in a fine mist that lasted until midday. Winter has arrived!

Busy on the farm

There is a lot going on outside my window farm wise - all of the tractors are busy spraying paddocks in readiness for sowing the winter crops. Here are a few photos of my version of farming throughout the seasons for a UK bed linen customer!

Autumn colour in the garden


Here are a few shots from the garden and my new salvia patch - I seem to have unintentionally settled on a purple and red colour combo for some reason.
I have just finished planting spring bulbs in random spots around the garden, in keeping with my Nana's gardening style. So far I have added alliums, snow drops, blue bells, white daffodils and Arab's Eye lilies, lots of good drawing material for new designs!

Love Bed linen?

If you are on the look-out for new bed linen and in need of some inspiration, check out the Cottonbox blog where I will be posting regularly on the latest trends and new releases in children's and adult's bedding designs available from the Cottonbox website. I have my eye on the beautiful Florence Broadhurst collection, but am finding it hard to narrow down my selection to just one design!
