Plitvice National Park | Croatia

I finally got round to editing our Croatia photos, these things take time when you have 800 or so! Here’s a very small edit from Plitvice National Park from August, knowing how busy it is in high season we opted for the two day pass to get round the park, and definitely recommend it! The queues were a bit mad, even getting there at 7am when it opens, but thankfully a 2 day pass meant we could walk straight in on the second day. Also doing the boats and popular waterfalls super early is recommended to avoid getting stuck in queues during the peak season.

Over the 2 days we walked the perimeter of the main lakes as well as some of the quieter woodland trails and even had a row in a boat!

 

The turquoise blue of the lakes is striking and unbelievably clear, the colours and reflections are really quite unique.

Biophilia | MA Textile Design

After a busy 2 years I’m excited to share I’ve completed my MA in Textile Design at Birmingham City University with Distinction. For the course I focused on Biophilia, the concept that we all have an innate need for nature. This term was popularised by Edward O. Wilson’s 1984 book of the same name, where he proposed our need to affiliate with nature and other living things is part of our biology.

Stylised Botanical Drawing Workshop & Pop-Up at West Elm, London

I’m super excited to doing my first Stylised Floral Drawing Workshop at West Elm, Westfield London on Saturday 29th September.

Join me for an afternoon of stylised florals where I’ll be sharing tips and tricks for drawing modern florals and botanicals. As a designer and illustrator my style has evolved over the years from fun doodling to detailed botanical drawing, all the while with a trusty black fineliner by my side. I’ll be guiding you through different approaches to drawing in black fineliner with a splash of watercolours along the way, helping you explore your own style.
