Into the Wild is the name of my 3rd collection of scatter cushions. I’m not into wooden giraffes & African masks, but I really wanted to create a collection that was ‘wild’ and that leaned more toward the contemporary side.
Galloping springboks and jumping kangaroos, savanna grasslands and warm African portraits were born, all created by my watercolour brush. These pillow covers are available on my online store, sold in Rands and also on my Etsy shop.

I promised more herringbone patterned cushions a few weeks ago. Well, let’s just say I didn’t stop there ;)
I’d like to share some new designs with you bit by bit, not all at once.
It’s like eating chocolate fondant really, really slowly, savour each bite…
Complete nautical range. Big thanks to Nico from Nihaka for the beautiful old globe.

This was a little play-project of mine, and I must say I’m very pleased with the results! These new herringbone patterned cushions covers are a huge hit so far. They’re big (58x68cm), soft and beautifully stitched by my very talented seamstress.
I’m so chuffed with these that I’ve decided to broaden the colour range, so keep an eye out for three more herringbone colours coming out in the next few weeks.

I was recently commissioned to do an art piece for a lovely lady in Johannesburg who wanted to give it as a very personal anniversary gift to her husband.
Whenever things got tough, he would say ‘shrimp boat’! Meaning they should run away together and go and live on a shrimp boat alone. I thought that’s so sweet I just had to share it!
And seeing as it’s their first wedding anniversary, paper as a gift is ideal, see traditional vs. modern anniversary gifts here.
I think by now everyone’s heard about the drama I had with Woolworths in 2013. It discouraged me to work with any other large retailers out of fear of being ripped off again.
However, I was approached by Weylandts in March this year and after much thought decided to grab hold of this opportunity with both hands!
And I can say, so far it’s been wonderful. I’m very happy to have found a retailer that better understands design and supporting local artists and designers.
Visiting their Green Point showroom in Cape Town is a must. Make a day out of it – you do not want to rush through it. The ambiance and textures drive me crazy (in a good way :)).
For those outside of Cape Town, go here:
