New commission for wedding stationery

Wedding stationery design, 2017, date stamp and ink on paper,

I have just finished this design for a wedding in July for Celia and Matt. It will adorn the table plan as well as each table place name card. The image is made up of the wedding date and as with the invitation design I finished earlier in the year, the method needed to be simplified, in order for the date to be clear.

This was the first time I had created a floral design and I’m so pleased with how it turned out. The wedding is taking place at The River Cottage so the idea for the design was to bring in elements of the English countryside, notes of nature and wholesome homegrown-ness, so I’ve used wildflowers as the focus. Each alphabetically represents the couple – a cornflower for Celia and a marsh marigold for Matt.

I would love to do more of this sort of work, so get in touch if you have something in mind.


new pet portrait

I have just finished a portrait of the beautiful dog Binks, who sadly passed away, earlier this year. Binks’ owner got in touch with me and asked if I could create a piece of work to commemorate the life of her beloved pet, so I suggested using both the date of birth and date Binks died to create the portrait, working from photographs.

If you would like to commission me to do a portrait of your pet, or are thinking about it, get in touch and I will be happy to discuss ideas and answer any of your questions. Check out more examples of my commissions here.
