Bedford and Milton Keynes Waterway Park Commission

I was recently commissioned by Bedford Borough Council to produce a print advertising their plans for a Bedford and Milton Keynes Waterway Park.

The Brief was to capture a canal within our lovely countryside with people enjoying being outdoors doing a variety of activities:

I believe the council will be using it is as advertisement and may also be producing it for retail. It will  be available on my website in A3 and A4 formats from 10th August.

My first video advertisement

So, rumour has it that video is the new social media frenzy and is an absolute must for any self employed business owner.

The thought of making a video scares the living daylights out of me! But luckily, for my first attempt the lovely Katie was willing to share her story of our work together and here is the result:

I’ll be shooting footage whenever and wherever possible of my business, what I get upto and sharing many more videos to come!

If there are any pre-existing customers out there who are willing to help me out i’d really appreciate it! It only has to be a 5 second clip! I can mash them all together to make another video.

I will I guess feature on one at some point…

Hope you enjoy!

Pieces for Places Exclusive Barmouth Commission

In May my boyfriend (Paul) and I went to Barmouth in Wales for our anniversary. We had a wonderful all be it rather windy time! Whilst there we stumbled across Pieces for Places. Being a moth to anything homeware or designer esk I fluttered in quickly racking up a long ‘to buy’ list from all their beautiful products.

I get really nervous approaching shop owners about wholesale or commissions but Paul gave me a reassuring nudge in the direction of Fred and I was greeted with a big friendly smile which put me right at ease!

After a lovely chat and look though my work Fred (1 brother of this 2 brother enterprise) seemed really keen but his brother Jack was the one I had to convince, so I left with Jack’s contact details and crossed my fingers!

After a few emails back and forth to my delight Jack ordered an exclusive print of Barmouth:

I set to work and captured the lovely view across the estuary incorporating the train bridge and quay. Jack was thrilled with it and promptly placed his stock order.

Print available from Pieces for Places only.

It was ace to work with you Jack and Fred. Thank you!

The commission page on my website has grown quite a lot recently! Take a look…

The cover sees the launch of my NEW Bedford Embankment print. It captures the suspension footbridge at a different angle and in more detail to the original.
I’ve already had interest from people who want to hang both Embankment prints together and some also with the Bedford Park Print.

village show Classic_V2Hope you like the new addition to my Bedford range.?

Kite Festival, Kiosk at the Park’s 3rd Birthday and the WIND!

Wow! What a lovely way to spend a Saturday.

We started off having a delicious breakfast at the Pavilion and checking up on the exhibition and restocking. Then headed down to the Kiosk to set up the stall for the afternoon.

What a buzzing fab atmosphere! The kite festival looked great, there were boat races going on and the kiosk was 3 years old!

IMG_1724IMG_1725IMG_1727Yet again I was totally overwhelmed with the amount of people who had come down just to say hi and buy a print. Sold out of my Embankment print (don’t worry! I’ve printed more!) and there’s only 2 left of the limited edition version!

The wind was a bit challenging! but everything survived unmarked! (just about!)

Thankyou to everyone who popped down, said hello, enjoyed the cake and fizz, tweeted and bought a print.

Bedford – you rule!

The Suspension bridge print commissioned on Social Media!

The power of social media never fails to amaze me! But yesterday the most astonishing thing happened.Suspension Bridge, BEdford copy

I received an email from Katie who wanted me to do a print of the Suspension Bridge down on the Embankment in Bedford. She couldn’t afford to commission me, but was determined she wanted this print! So she went on Facebook and advertised the idea… After an astonishing response she came back to me with a list longer than my arm of people who also wanted to purchase this print and so I agreed to do the print for free.

As the demand was so high I got to it right away and today have barely stopped to breath! But the print is done! I’m super pleased with it and feels it sits alongside my Bedford Pavilion print perfectly.

I’ll pop up to the Pavilion tomorrow to display it there along with the rest of my exhibition, which is still up for 5 more weeks.

You can buy the new Embankment print HERE!

We are Anglesey Collaboration

I have recently been working with the fantastic small We are Anglesey Logos-01business ‘We are Anglesey.’

They have just launched the rebranding of their very successful Facebook page and other social media outlets featuring the logos I have created for them.

Alongside their new rebrand I created prints of the Menai Bridge and Penmon Lighthouse two iconic landmarks on the Isle of Anglesey.

Menai Bridge, Anglesey Day UK copy Menai Bridge, Anglesey Night UK copy Penmon UK Main copyThe prints are now live on my website to buy and also available in welsh.

It’s been a really fun project to work on and I love to support small, independent businesses like myself!

I am looking forward to seeing how their brand develops over the coming months!
