My inspiration playground
I like Big Jewels and I can not lie
For this blog I’m taking you to one of my old haunts. It’s special places like this that fill me with inspiration and excitement for my work. Ladies and gents, I give you, Dean Lane Skate Park.
Why I can make your display look amazing
Some people love shoes, some people love bags but when it comes to the details of finishing off an outfit, I'm all about the jewels.
Why I love making stuff look awesome
Recently I held my first ever Display Training Workshop and to say I felt proud was an understatement. Having an idea to do something I felt passionate about and turning that into something real was such a rewarding thing to do.
My Hero Rodney Mullen - Part 2
Last week I proudly launched Display'ing, a series of workshops designed to coach and support creators in the display of their products for craft fairs and events.
Skateboarding and the rebel in me
Rodney Mullen made my hero list because of his talent, passion, honesty and humble nature, if I'm feeling a bit stuck creatively, I take time out to listen to this guy.
My Hero Rodney Mullen - Part 1
I used to watch the local kids skate hard, practice tricks and be a little rebellious, I was strangely drawn to this group and was in awe of their gritty determination to keep going until the trick was landed or the deck was bust...
Who doesn't love Double Denim
Rodney Mullen AKA ‘The godfather of skateboarding’ is an American professional skateboarder, businessman, inventor, and public speaker who practices freestyle and street skateboarding.
My Hero Terry Richardson
I have always been a jeans and tee kind of a girl, a classic look where I can play with my love of double denim and accessorise with my statement jewellery. Denim is such an amazing material rich in history and a constant in wardrobes all over the world.
My Hero Iris Apfel
As a fanatical collector of The Face and i-D magazines throughout the 1990's I became aware of this pretty awesome American fashion photographer called Terry Richardson.
Funky old patina
Free spirited New Yorker Iris Apfel is one super cool lady, she is a business woman, interior designer and fashion icon.
Street finds of Bordeaux
I'm obsessed, absolutely bloody obsessed! I have always loved walking the streets admiring old distressed walls of graffiti
A day spying on Jimmy Cauty
I recently went to Bordeaux for a good friends wedding, it was my first trip to rural France and I was not disappointed.
My Hero Keith Haring
Jmmy Cauty (artist/musician) came to Exeter with his container full of art as part of the AdpRiotTour.
To hang or not to hang, that is the question?
Keith Haring is a total legend and inspiration of mine for many years now
I love old picture frames, can't get enough of the bloody things, the question is where on earth do I put them all?!?
