With a focus on odd humour, the everyday, pop culture and mood swings this collection of illustrated home wares has been put together using 2D techniques. (screen printing, drawing, sewing and ceramic decals.) The collections aim to simply bring a smile to peoples faces and not to delve into deep meanings or hidden concepts, the work is about fun, colour and brightening up the everyday.

The products are both functional items and decorative pieces, made to complement each other across the ranges and within. Developing a stylistic approach to illustration and use of colour has been a key factor in doing this.

Using digital programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator the original images have been developed into patterns and repeats which have then been carefully applied onto cermics and textile pieces.
