Kees en Kas

Kees and Kas the Fireboys! Late last year I had the great pleasure of illustrating a Dutch children’s book by the author Pedro Dubislav. Called Kees en Kas De Brandweer Jongens, the book tells the story of twin boys who dream of becoming firefighters. Unfortunately their exploits lead not to glory but to chaos, exploding…

Robot duvet cover

I’ve been meaning to post this project for a long time but never quite got there. In fact this whole project has been a little like that, I designed my robot at the start of last year. I finally ordered it as a print last October and by December I had found the time to…

Lemonade Tea Towels

I recently made these tea towels for my most amazingly wonderful mother as┬áher birthday gift. The lemonade design I had drawn up a while ago as part of a recipe collection which I then had transferred onto some screens so that I could print from them. The boys chose some mustard yellow gingham tea towels…

Felt Flower Sachets

Late last year I went to visit my wonderful friend in New York and spent a very happy week walking the streets with her and our very long to do list. Via hours of pleasant wandering we found all the gluten free bakeries, visited the galleries and ate our way from district to district. I…

The promise of Spring….

The sunshine that we so miss here in Denmark during the long winter months, recently made a reappearance and the difference that the softly warming light makes to our days cannot be underestimated. I could never have imagined spending weeks without even a glimpse of blue sky never mind seeing the sun but that is…

You’re a pink toothbrush, I’m a blue toothbrush.

A few weeks ago I was playing with my Sketchbook Pro program and an idea sprung to mind for a children’s sponge bag print, my boys are forever losing their toothbrushes when we travel so we were long overdue a little toiletry organisation. I drew some toothbrushes and a tube of toothpaste, immediately fell in…
