Northumbrian Rose

I was asked to design the artwork by Judith, the owner of Fine Fettle
Fibres, for her newly commissioned yarn – Northumbrian Rose, which is a beautifully soft blend of Blue Faced Leicester wool from Hexam, alpaca from Old Felton, and 40% rose fibres.  The label also includes the black and white Northumbrian tartan, and picked up on the colours of all eight yarns in the range.

It can be seen at

Tomato ‘Lemon Tree’

Tomato ‘Lemon Tree’

24 x 32 cm


The seeds for these were in a pack of ‘heritage’ tomatoes, and I loved the intensity of the golden colour of the ripe fruit.

This is one of the four pieces submitted to the Royal Horticultural Society Picture Committee and considered to be Silver Medal standard.
