I feel so inspired by this beautiful collection of doll`s houses I saw at Newby Hall yesterday….
A miniature tribute to the statue gallery at Newby Hall!
And the beautiful flowers added to my inspiration!
I can`t get enough of layering! These three-dimensional pictures are all about layering! Made from laser cut mount board, japanese paper, brass and cork (to create the height) layered to play with depth and pattern.
This is made from laser cut mount board and japanese paper…
This one is made from laser cut mount board and plywood, brass, cork, coloured paper and japanese paper.
All three pictures are inspired by different places; Newby Hall (my favourite stately home and where I got married!), Port Meirion ( such a quirky place) and Claydon House (another beautiful stately home).
The picture below is Newby Hall, a beautiful stately home in Yorkshire, near Ripon. I designed it for my wedding invitation and was inspired by the ceiling in the statue gallery.It`s made from laser cut mount board, layered underneath with coloured paper and japanese paper in the centre. The back of each picture is mount board, making the pieces 3 mm thick.
I love these frames from Nkuku, the pictures fit perfectly in them!
Inspired by the quirky village of Port Meirion the picture below is made from laser cut gold mount board, layered underneath with coloured paper.

I`ve really enjoyed arranging these things and looking forward to her arrival…just the cot to assemble now and a paper flower garland to put up.
I was sooo excited when I saw these Natalie Lete vinyls! I`m looking forward to making up stories about these woodland creatures living in her bedroom!
She already has a hand made shoe collection!…
The last six months have been so busy I`ve not had nearly as much time as I`d have liked in my studio, mainly because I`ve started a post graduate course in Integrative Psychotherapy. Psychotherapy has been a passion for a long time and I`m amazed how closely creativity and Psychotherapy are linked. My experience of my Psychotherapy course so far has been AMAZING, life changing, challenging, enlightening…..these words don`t even begin to describe it…I`ll share more when the words come to me…but now I have some time in my studio over summer, which is bliss!
I`ve been laser cutting card and experimenting with different patterns…..
I like to be hands on when I`m designing, so I`m experimenting with this new way of designing, so some of these shapes might end up being mirrors, jewellery etc. Here are some of my favourites….
I`m also in the process of creating some circular pictures made from coloured mount board and japanese paper this design inspired by Port Meirion….
My task over summer is to create my new collection Dolce Vita, which is going to made from walnut, mirrored perspex and frosted perspex. I`m really excited at the beautiful colours the perspex comes in…
