Reloved Magazine – 9 page feature!

I was lucky enough to be interviewed by Reloved Magazine for their ‘My Reloved Home’ article & after only expecting a couple of pages, I was actually given a 9 page feature!

Plant Girl Iris – Autumn at Arley Hall

I love this time of year! There’s such beautiful colours around. 1 day a week I’m learning a new botanical skill, which compliments my design & photography work too (you can read my previous posts here). I just love it as my time at Arley makes me so relaxed (& I do it instead of the gym). […]

New Design Work & Trying New Things

Sometimes I just get a creative urge & the designs just flow out of me no matter what time it is (& I ignore what I’m meant to be doing). I’ve also been trying out a lot of new things lately from visiting plant shows to getting a second job as a gardeners apprentice! The […]

Plant Girl IRIS

I’m up to all sorts of randomness as per usual. Story of my life & career! If it’s to do with creativity or learning then I have a thing with a lot of serendipitous occurrences following me around. To cut a long story short, I’ve been drawing plants & nature for my job for over […]

Seasonal Garden Inspiration

Costa del Liverpool! Summer really is the best season for my garden as the flowers have exploded all around my garden studio & the brick wall / bird box village area at the back. It’s all growing so beautifully & there’s so much colour everywhere. I especially love the pink Echinacea & the vibrant yellow Rudbeckia. I […]

Summer colour inspiration

My summer has been so full of colourful inspiration from trips around flower shows to gigs in London, I’ve spotted so much around me. This pretty rainbow flowered R I spotted at the RHS Tatton Park flower show. Gorgeous tropical flowers from a gift given for my birthday. Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to […]
