'Daisy-Chain' is a series of visually linking delicate lace flowers. There are only 6 pieces and each is different. I stop drawing each image when I feel happy with it!

I love the idea of trading design and craft work and in the past I have swapped artwork with other creatives. It's a great way of having something new and beautiful and you also get to know different creatives which is always nice.
Hilary from Buzz and Lola got in touch with me as she was looking for someone to brand her new venture. I studied Graphic Design before moving on to other things and I really love to work on pretty and feminine logos. Hilary proposed a swap and I was more than happy to work with her.
The logo is strong but feminine and I was delighted to work in the colour scheme that she wanted, as it's the same palette that I always work in- I love the contrast between black, grey and hot pink!
I think that it looks really good applied to Hilary's social media sites. As you can see, she's only getting started so be sure to 'like' her Facebook page and show her some support on her new venture :)
Here is the beautiful throw that Hilary made, which is with my Mother in Ireland.
I also received this beautiful little package...
..which contained these gorgeous pink felt coasters (which I am using all the time!) and some MT washi tape, which I am a huge fan of.
Thank you Hilary x

I managed to get some photos of the work before the opening night. In the exhibition I am exhibiting a mixture of work- the 'Daisy-chain' series, 'Lace Doilies', 'Lady of the Flowers', 'Blossom', 'Kaleidoscope Thoughts' and my new illustrated wooden birdhouses! As pieces sell they are replaced with new work to keep the exhibition exciting and ever- changing.
'Untitled' by Maria Funke
'Visual Perceptions', a 3 piece set by Christin Penz
L-R: Me (Lily), Maria and Christin
We will also be having a closing party when the exhibition ends so keep your eye on the Facebook event page here for updates. Meanwhile, in about a weeks time I will have some new work in the gallery which I can't wait to share with you x

I have been busy preparing for the exhibition and as it's titled' all in the detail.' I have been paying special attention to the little details :)
Today Christin and I put up posters in the area. See if you can spot them around the place- here is one at Macarons De Stéphane- you'll have to go and check it out and maybe get a macaron in the process ;)

I am excited to be part of this group exhibition that opens next week in Berlin. We are three artists with detailed and feminine styles which can be seen in this mix of illustration, painting and print.
Here are some existing works by the other artists, Maria Funke and Christin Penz to give you an idea of the different styles, but I will have to wait until nearer the time to show you our new pieces! All I can say is that there will be original artworks on a variety of different media, prints and cards.
'Gazing' by Christin Penz of This is Nice
'But it's too much for a young heart to take
Cause hearts are the easiest things you could break' by Maria Funke of Deerheart
If you're in Berlin the exhibition opens next Saturday, May 4th at 7pm. I hope to see you there x

On Sunday I attended my first Berlin fleamarket as a seller! The event was called 'Blackbird Makes Party! Flohmarkt' and was organized by the amazing vintage store Sing Blackbird, which was one of my favourite cafes when I rented a studio in Kreuzberg last summer. The location was Urban Spree which is an amazing artistic space with a gallery, bookstore and studios. I LOVE the poster, isn't it amazing!?
I had a selection of greeting cards, postcards, wooden 'friendship tokens', original artwork on wood and canvas, printed canvas and screenprints. Thank you to everyone that came up to say hello and to everyone that bought my things :). I am looking forward to going back again with a much bigger selection of pieces! x

Hazel Nicholls is a London based artist who produces some beautiful things including the most amazing screen prints. I adore her positive and fun designs which are mostly influenced by her love of cross stitch and an interest in old phrases. They are such lovely things to give, receive and have in your home.
