'Mama' 2018 Collection
Between a busy last 12 months with Graphic Design work (and raising 2 kiddies!) I am slowly releasing a number a designs from my new collection titled 'Mama'. This collection centres around Women, Mothers and Female empowerment. Each design focuses on strong female animals and mothers with their young. This collection features 2 designs that have been commissioned by Meander Basin Lavender Farm in Ontario, Canada. These designs feature bees and Lavender and will be sold in their country gift store at their Lavender Farm. They will also be available in Australia for purchase in cards and limited edition prints.
'Dreamweaver' 2016 Collection
'Dreamweaver' was released in 2016, consisting on 9 designs, including a new Christmas design.
After a long wait taking time off to welcome our second child Sunny Raymond in late 2015, this collection was inspired by the tremendous amount of time I spent in bed asleep during 2015, suffering severe Hyperemesis throughout my pregnancy. ‘Dreamweaver’ seemed a fitting title for a period of time I spent dreaming of places and scenarios I’d much rather be in!
'Wild & Free' 2014 Collection
'Wild & Free' was all about freedom, wild animals and the outdoors. I have a great passion for drawing wild animals and this series brought to light my fascination with native American culture and subject matter.
Wild & Free consists of 6 designs, several of these were then converted into cushions and zipper pouches.
'Indie Series' 2013 Collection
'Indie Series' was first released late 2012. It all came about by wanting to be a part of a local mothers market after moving to a new town and having just had my first child. I put together some images and had them printed locally on to cards, and I sold all of them in the one day.
This inspired me to design another batch for this collection in 2013 and start showcasing my new found style at other local markets, to a really fantastic and encouraging reception. There were 18 designs in total which then paved the way for art prints, cushions and opening my online shop, which has to date made over 200 sales.
A new hand illustrated Christmas design is released each year, they are available in selected retailers and sold in packs of 10, including matching gift tags.
Peace, Joy, Happiness, Love
Each range has featured a number of designs printed on to fabric. The fabric is printed by Frankie and Swiss in Victoria, onto 100% Organic Canvas, and the items are all made in Tasmania. Check the shop link to see what is available.In 2018 a new range will include fashionable Tote Bags.
