Nottingham Catchfly giftware
I'm incredibly thrilled and proud of my latest project, which turned out to be a remarkable collaboration with Nottingham Castle! They asked me to create an illustration of the Catchfly, which is Nottingham's county flower. Amazingly this flower made a triumphant return during the COVID lockdown, after its eradication in the 1930s.
I not only painted a stunning illustration of the Catchfly, I also transformed it into a captivating pattern. This pattern has now been beautifully printed onto a wide array of products, including cards, prints, gift wrap, mugs, tea towels, and coasters. It brings me immense joy to see how my Catchfly illustration breathes life into these functional and delightful giftware items.
I feel incredibly honoured that Nottingham Castle trusted me with this project. It gave me a chance to show off the beauty and importance of the Catchfly, while also celebrating Nottingham's history and resilience. I put a lot of love and hard work into this project, and I am overjoyed to share the range with you!
I really hope you'll fall in love with the Catchfly collection, just like we have. Each item is a special reminder of how magical nature can be and the amazing things that can happen when people work together.
