What an amazing woman Mrs Beeton was, I had no idea she was so young when she died. She achieved so much in her short life, a truly inspirational and remarkable woman. My image of her has always been of an elderly, prim & proper lady, with grey hair, glasses and an apron permanently attached to her small frame. The small frame may have been appropriate, but the elderly woman couldn’t have been further from the truth. She died at 28, had 4 children, two of whom died as infants and a husband who potentially slept around before they met and gave her syphilis. She was never acknowledged for her tremendous contributions to domesticity, her gravestone being shared with her husband and he no recognition of her talents, only his. The sad inequality of her time.

While watching the BBC programme, (hosted by Sophie Dahl, who was the perfect choice for such a programme) with my daughter we were both rather amused to see a piece of graphics that looked very familiar. Not dissimilar to my own drawing, it was rather surprising to see how something that was potentially drawn many years ago could be so similar to another piece of work produced in the last 5 yrs. See for yourself, it’s not identical obviously, but I think there is a definite similarity. What do you think?

Right, I’m off to make Apple Soup & Trifle…

After many years of wishing I could be successful in a profession that I actually enjoyed, I embarked on a new career as a Graphic Designer. By gaining a BA(hons)Graphic Design in 2009 I have realised my dream of being part of the creative industry. In my capacity as designer I listen to my clients needs, suggest practical solutions and aspire to portray their business in a professional and creative manner. I am competitive with my prices as I like to stay affordable for smaller businesses like myself. However, this doesn't mean I compromise on the quality of my work. I pride myself with being a bit of a perfectionist and would only ever give 100% to every project I take on. I'll be honest with you if I feel I'm not the right person for the job. I know what I'm good, but equally I know where my skills might not be as strong for what you need. There is no point me telling you I can help, then turn around it three months time and say, sorry, I can't do that. I have many contacts within the design industry who will have skills that I can't deliver and I'll happily recommend them to you if I feel I can't help. Please contact me for any web design, Shopify e-commerce site, digital marketing & graphics work you might need - I enjoy a challenge and will gladly take on any job, big or small
