My recent trip to Bath

A few snaps from my recent trip to Bath last week. It is such a lovely place to visit, I think I went at the right time too, the weather was gorgeous!! There's lots of Georgian architecture and vintage style houses like the one above. Its a good place to go shopping as theres lots of great charity shops and little boutiques. 

I thought that I might tell you a few of my favourite places that I visited incase anyone reading this is going to Bath or gets inspired to. We visited a restaurant called Salathai, which was really lovely. The staff where so friendly and even gave us free desert. Whats better than that! Also make sure to visit The Real italian Ice cream co, especially if the weather is nice. They do so many flavours, the 
biscotti one is delicious.

Unfortunately the Bath Tour buses weren't running the day I was visiting but I would be sure to check this out. Its a sure way to see everything Bath has to offer from a comfortable seat! Other must-sees are The Abbey, The Royal Crescent and The Circus. Another great experience to do in Bath is the Bizarre Bath comedy walk, genuinely one of the best things to do in Bath!! If you do one thing in Bath definitely do this. Its such good value for money too. 


I think as well for me being an illustrator, it was a great place to get lost and get inspired. Its just a beautiful city and around every corner is something beautiful to look at.

Response to "The Crones Eyes" by Kate Morton

One of my all time favourite authors in Kate Morton, I really love her style of writing and how you can just loose yourself in her books. At University in my last semester we where aloud to choose what we wanted to Illustrate and set our own briefs so for one of mine I decided to look at Kate Morton's short story within "The forgotten garden", "The Crones eyes". I loved the imagery of the landscape and the beginning paragraph of the princess running away from the palace and stumbling upon a cottage, the crones cottage. This imagery inspired me to create this illustration. I enjoyed creating this illustration especially the trees!

Roman inspired Calendar - The meaning behind the months

Heres another recent project I have been working on for my final semester hand in at Uni. I wanted to depict the meanings behind the Months and which Roman Gods they where named after. The research in to the Months was quite fun to do! I've never created a calendar before, so I really enjoyed  putting it together in InDesign. I'm feeling quite inspired to make another calendar but using my full portfolio on the different months. Have you made a calendar recently? how did you find it.

Vintage jewellery

I'm a really big fan of all things vintage especially vintage jewellery (a love I got from my Nan) For one of my latest project at uni I've been creating illustration to promote wearing vintage jewellery. If you have any pictures of jewellery you love it would be great to see them!! I think vintage jewellery always has a special story to tell. Whats yours?
