I create exquisite batik textile designs inspired by my passion for British wildlife, in particular birds, butterflies, insects and wild flowers using the ancient Indonesian art-form of layering melted wax and water based dyes on Indonesian cotton to create vibrant paintings. I produce commissions and have both original work and an extensive library of signed, editioned giclee prints of my original work available.
This month Grand Designs featured an episode set on my doorstep in the Malvern Hills. The episode, titled 'Malvern 2017', features a new build by my friends Gill and Jon in West Malvern. Towards the end of the build the Grand Designs team asked me if I would like to decorate the house for the final filming with some of my work. Obviously I had to have a long think about that for all of 5 seconds before saying YES PLEASE!
It was so exciting to meet Kevin McCloud and the rest of the Grand Designs team and it has been amazing to see my work aired on national television here in the UK. The episode is still available to watch on Channel 4 Catchup until 6th October 2017 (Malvern 2017 episode).
