Winter throw blankets – a curated collection at Society6

The nights are drawing in now and thoughts begin to turn to snuggling up and keeping warm. I’ve curated this collection of winter throw blankets from Society6, where artists have found the beauty in winter. Warm, rich tones stand alongside the crystal blues and whites […]

Lone tree – collection on Society6

Lone tree – collection on Society6

One lone tree stood in the middle of this farm field, defying the farmer’s straight lines. I came across this wonderful scene on a walk through a local village. The countryside of Kent has offered me some great material for my photography, from wide landscapes […]

Tortoises – a curated collection at Society6

Tortoises – a curated collection at Society6

It was a lot of fun looking for these pieces of art. There are many different interpretations of the noble tortoise by Society6 artists, from an abstract black and white print to the one that really speaks to me as a keen gardener: that cheeky […]

Pumpkin and pine cones – collection at Society6

Pumpkin and pine cones – collection at Society6

I’m a firm believer that every season brings its own beauty. Pumpkins and pine cones are just some of the attractions of autumn, along with the glorious reds and yellows of changing foliage. Along the side of the roads, the trees are practically glowing, while […]

Popcorn maize – collection at Society6

Orange kernels of popcorn maize just ready to pop, pop, pop! It seems quite magical that with just a bit of heat, something this size and colour can turn inside out and expand into bouncing, fluffy white popcorn. My favourite for snacking at the cinema […]

Orange pumpkin among autumn leaves – Society6 collection

Happy Halloween! This cute orange pumpkin never made it to the jack o’ lantern stage, as I was too busy carrying it around with me like a little pet. I told you I was a bit nuts for gourds. They are simply such fun to […]

Red conkers – collection at Society6

There’s no doubt that aside from the changing colours of the foliage, conkers are one of autumn’s prettiest gifts. Isn’t this radiant red-brown the most glorious colour? These conkers were collected from near my old school one weekend. Then, like so many of my finds, […]

Pink and yellow paint smears – collection at Society6

Pink and yellow paint smears – collection at Society6

Sometimes all a designer needs is a colourful background and this abstract painting fits the bill perfectly. The thick smears of paint offer texture and interest without being intrusive. As such they are a great choice for a background, available in my stock photography portfolio. […]

Pink cable knitting stitch – collection at Society6

Pink cable knitting stitch – collection at Society6

Maybe one day I’ll get my fingers and brain around cable stitch in knitting, but for now it’s a bridge – or needle – too far! There’s no denying its appeal though and so I commissioned a stretch of it for my photography. You’ll find […]

Thanksgiving gourd and pumpkin pie – collection at Society6

When you are decorating for Thanksgiving, or simply adding a splash of autumn colour to your house, a brightly coloured little pumpkin is a wonderful choice. Not every foodstuff is suited to ornamental use of course. Pumpkins and squashes are so wonderfully robust though, that […]
