Researching and writing my newest botanial drawing, painting and illustration book has meant a new interest in garden and wild plants.

UK/US English version should be out January 2020*

The focus of a recent north Devon holiday meant visits to gardens and artists' studios + lots of photo opportunities.

The delightful Ann and Bill Jarvis at Clovelly Silk.
My own surface pattern deign beginnings meant it was a treat to chat to Ann about her years as head of studio at Liberty London, and to Bill about devoré print techniques...and all manner of non-related things. 


...and more print talk with Lydia Jane Duncan at Candyland Studios just down the hill in Clovelly where her studio shop is located in a beautiful fisherman's cottage.
