From Scotland

I've loved the Scottish sometimes wilderness; rugged mountains dropping to the sea, clouds engulfing the summits while sweeping past, and meeting others enjoying it too. These are a few of my holiday photographs.

In the silence I have been creating my own kind of snow.

I'm very lucky to be included in the exhibition "Narrative" by Cambridge Creative Network, alongside 16 other hugely talented artists. I'm showing completely new fashion designs from my Spring/Summer 2013 Pre-collection ~ And the snow...
With the theme being Narrative I've posted the story of the collection And the snow... here online, from initial ideas through the design process.

The exhibition runs until the 1st of April 2012, and massive thanks to all those who've visited already.

Pattern Cutting - Dennic Chunman Lo

Pattern Cutting - Dennic Chunman Lo
There is an absolutely lovely new pattern cutting book by Dennic Chunman Lo. He's very good indeed at explaining why things are usually done a certain way, and the aide memoire section is a delight for absentminded me. This book would be great for any students of pattern cutting.

Being related to a geographer means looking at: northernmost points, a variety of peatbogs, cool rocks, and other amazing geological features.
These are pictures from our hike to the northernmost point of mainland Europe, on the Knivskjellodden peninsula. The cool colours are due to the film being 10 years out of date. I'm glad it still worked!

Almost 9km from the car park...

Looking towards Nordkapp across the Barents sea.

A little rest on the way back.

The weather started to close in.

I've just got back from a journey around the north of Europe, visiting Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Somewhat epic! Here's where I'll be posting the photos as I get them finished.

With only 10kg of hand luggage to keep us going for almost 3 weeks I have been learning to travel light; which means plastic cameras! A Diana and Holga traveled along with me, as well as a little pocket 35mm Canon Prima.

As for the places, they're breathtaking; I'm lost for words and I don't think my photos will do justice either.
