Long Ago - Photo Manipulation and Card


This is the print - an experiment of sorts. I wanted to see if I could create an image that has a vintage feel without feeling old fashioned. Memories seemed a good subject for this. 
There is a poem to go with it, here.

The card is the same except the very pretty model has been removed and replaced with an extract of a few lines from the poem. I felt it worked better like this for a card.

The End of All Hope - Photo Manipulation


This is my part of a collaboration in a dptych for Mission Monday on Rebdbubble
Check out the collaboration here
 Check out Mieke's fab image here

It was quite a challenge, and one I enjoyed immensely. I love Mieke's atmospheric photograph and it was great to have to think of something to go with it and it was fun creating a completely new image to go with the mood and atmosphere in Mieke's image. It was also a big challenge for me to keep it black & white (okay, okay, I did apply a sepia photo filter), which must be a first for me.

Elementally Essentially Human - Photo Manipulation

 I've recently read the phrase 'elementally human' and it made me wonder... I felt his was the perfect (and very beautiful) model for what I had in mind. The image is full of contradicting elements and contrasts and the model perfectly (for me) expresses the human condition - wings on one side and despair and possibly shame on the other.

Snow Dreams - New Collection

Available from my Envelop shop
I am not a great fan of Winter unless it’s cold with a blue sky and sun shine…. Here’s my remedy to counteract it, the Snow Dreams collection. Romantic, feminine flower blossoms reminiscent of Spring and Summer in soft, dreamy colours. Who could resist them?

Christmas Prints and Cards

This set is inspired by Lucienne Day, a 50s designer. I saw some of her designs on TV the other day and loved them so much that I wanted to do something along those lines. There was a simplicity of design as well as colour about them that spoke to me. Here's the result.

Why not treat yourself to some unusual prints or cards for the Christmas/Winter season?

Available as prints on Redbubble:
Also available as cards on Redbubble:
Christmas Tree Card
Christmas Heart Card
