Paint and homewares

Here's a pic I took in my new studio of a painting I'm working on at the moment. I've been playing with some mediums that I haven't touched in a while, such as my beloved bag of paints. My infatuation with colour is nothing new, I could sit for hours exploring new colours and groupings, I love getting lost in a world of blues and pinks and oranges.
This painting marks a bit of a crossroads for me, there's aspects of my work that I'm moving away from and new projects that are really grabbing my attention and shifting my focus. My love for textile design is turning into a fully fledged obsession and this combined with my love of interiors has led me to work on a line of homewares with my design partner in crime Laine Fraser. This new venture of ours will be up and running in a few weeks. I've been caught up in the mad world of working a full time design job and starting a new business, hence my appalling effort at keeping this blog up to date - so thanks for sticking with me. I promise to blog the shit out of our new homewares label over the coming weeks xxx
