All about me

Hello… However you found your way here to my little blog, thanks for staying and looking around!

Creativity is all around us, everything you see, hear, feel, taste has been designed by someone and I have a bit of an obsession with it all. I’m a graphic designer by day, and jointly run my own business with my husband, Copper Blue Creative. I spend the majority of every day being enthralled by good and bad design inspiration.

I was the only one of my friends growing up who wanted to do something arty for a living, and the first time I realised I wasn’t a freak was when I started at Cleveland Art College back in the 90’s and discovered there were people out there that thought the same way as me! The world would be a very dull place with us creatives.

I have a real passion for rescuing the unloved things we find and a firm believer in ‘one man’s junk is another’s treasure.’ Give things a lick of paint, a new handle, a new fabric covering or a completely new use and the unloved becomes loved again.

Follow me on Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter for a daily dose of ramblings about my inspirations and obsessions.
