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.
In February 2015, I was awarded a Silver medal by the Royal Horticultural Society for my set of seven paintings of crab apples from RHS Garden Hyde Hall. I have five years to get my next set of paintings sorted, and now we have settled in our new home, I am getting on with them.
I was asked to design and draw up a series of notebook covers by the Northumbria Community. The first came out two years ago – the Celtic Daily Prayer design, and the second, based on the first of the Community’s Three Questions, ‘Who is it that you seek?’ came out last year. This year, the second Question notebook, ‘How then shall we live?’, is now available from the Community online shop (see the link below).
I will be continuing with my regular illustrations for ParishPump, the online resource for the editors and compilers of Parish magazines.
The following designs are available as greetings cards from the Northumbria Community Online shop: ‘Deep Peace’ (Gaelic Blessing), ‘Labyrinth’, ‘Hollow of His hand’ (May the road rise up to greet you), ‘Wings and waves Celtic cross’, ‘May the peace’, Wind, water, flame – the Holy Spirit’, and ‘Wingshadow’
