Some images of my inspiration….beach finds & colours of Cornwall. These are often the starting point for new designs.  I enjoy taking photographs most often with my phone camera these days, although I do still use a digital SLR too.

Textures, colours, repeat patterns are all favourites.  I find the Cornish coast an endless source of inspiration especially living & working in St Ives where the light is particularly special, each day giving unique colours.
