I love this time of year – the beautiful colours in the park and the traditions of Halloween and Bonfire – just sharing a few images that reflect the time of year- some spooky confectionary spotted in the window of the Cafe Royal in Regent St – london – some autumn foliage and seasonal produce

I was just tidying up my iPhoto albums and came across these pictures I took last December in Koh Samet. The brilliant  sunshine gave everything a really intense colour and the textures were wonderful as well.

Today I am participating in an online project – as part of the Fire Up project at University of the Arts London – one of the collaborators posted this app that they have worked on with NIke – great way to get designers thinking about sustainability

Good news the paperback version of my book is now back in print and available on Amazon

I love Pinterest as a quick and easy way of finding inspiration. I came across this wonderful collection of images from Sketchbooks and thought I would share it with you

Just got back from a fabulous break in Icmeler Turkey- it was hot 38-40 degrees with clear blue skies everyday. Below a few snapshots of some of the local highlights. The trip to Dalyan is well worth it to see the rock tombs and the reed beds where the film African Queen was actually shot ! Turtle beach was beautiful . The presentation of food was also to be appreciated- I had the prettiest cup of cappuccino ever.mezze Pretty Cappuccino Phosphorous cave Reed beds rock tombs Rock tombs Dalyan
