Emily Brown, Textile Designer

Emily Brown is a very good friend of mine and I just had to share her work with you guys. Her background is in fine art and overlays her organic expressive drawings over watery, painted backgrounds. Colour is a huge influence and a big part of her designs. Emily manages to effortlessly combine her colour and prints together to create gorgeous and desirable interior designs. Check out her blog! Here's her current project...

L.S. Lowry's 125th Birthday

So today would have been L.S Lowry's 125th birthday! I remember my Grandad showing me his work from a young age. Matchstick men and matchstick dogs.

Mini Meltdown!

 
So this week I had a mini meltdown due to me thinking I had lost my external hardrive. Thankfully, it had been left at uni and one of the awesome students from my course had picked it up! I have 3 mini jewellery sets complete ready for production. One more to fully complete then I should be set to go. Eeep.
