I've been reminiscing about my time studying in Japan today and I found this series of drawings I did whilst I was there. I really remember drawing these in the beautiful library at Tama Art University. I never developed them further but might do something with them someday...
It’s that back-to-school time of year, always a good time to have a bit of a re-think and prepare for the winter months. I am lucky to come from a beautiful part of West Cornwall and I have just returned from Glasgow after such a lovely break, we travelled around the UK with our new baby girl visiting family and friends. It was so nice to see so many friendly faces, to catch up with people and also to reset a little bit.
The pause from work really helped me to think about where I want KYE to go, what is most important to me about my work and what I most enjoy. I hope that I can return to a more focused plan for the rest of the year. This includes social media and how much I put on Instagram etc, do any other makers find that this can take over from the creative side a little bit?
Visiting Cornwall also gave me some much needed inspiration, I always find something to inspire me when I head home to West Cornwall and this trip was no different. Some snaps below…
I had a fantastic time last weekend at my first ever market. The folks at Glasgow Super Market were so friendly and so were all the other stall holders and visitors. The space (The Engine Works) is absolutely gorgeous and I can see why they have weddings there! Many thanks to Super Market Events for having me and to GSA Enterprise Studio for setting up the opportunity!
I launched my new collection of prints and products at the market and these will be going online very soon (will send out an e-mail so make sure you are signed up!). In the mean time check out my stand and all the lovely things on display…
I will be launching a new collection range of textiles and products available exclusively at Glasgow Super Market this Sunday.
It is running from 11 - 5 this Sunday the 4th of August at the Engine Works (23-25 Lochburn Rd, Wyndford, Glasgow G20 9AE).

Please come along and tell your friends as I would love to see some friendly faces, this is my first market and I am a little bit nervous!

I’m so happy to start printing my new collection. It is a lovely feeling to see designs I have been working on come to life. The fabric is washed and pressed and then I lay out my blocks, have a cup of coffee and visualise the print. I then start printing, sometimes pausing for another cuppa, sometimes I print really quickly and sometimes I leave a fews hours or even a day to think about the composition.
Before I started printing I colour tested my inks and blocks…
I’ll post the final collection here when it’s finished (I can’t wait!!) I’ll have new prints and some lovely new products too - yippee!
