Small Stories: At Home in a Dolls’ House

I was delighted to be asked to contribute to an exhibition which opens on the 13th December at the Museum of Childhood.

Set with a brief to design a miniature fantastical room, I set about thinking how London could be brought to life for kids. How about swinging in Big Ben, doing your homework in the Houses of Parliament or sleeping in the London Eye?

The exhibition reveals the fascinating stories behind some of the UK’s best loved dolls’ houses, taking you on a journey through the history of the home, everyday lives and changing family relationships. My room features in the Dream House section of the exhibition, an installation of 19 miniature rooms by different designers.

London patterns

I spend a lot of time travelling across London on the underground and never without a pen and paper; I am often doodling patterns in a little notebook. I thought it was about time I did something constructive with the patterns, so I have come up with three London-centric cards featuring 3 iconic London buildings: The Gherkin, St Paul’s and Battersea Power Station. As an aside, over the years I have had lots of requests to do more images involving Battersea Power Station, so I hope this is the first of many!

Still working on different colour ways, but these greeting cards should be available to buy before Christmas. I am considering whether these might work as a limited edition screen print as well, so watch this space.
