Do you like to follow trends or set trends?

I like to do a bit of both, follow trends if I happen to like the particular trend, and set them when I want to do something different.

What is your favourite medium to work with?

I like acrylic paints, pastels, markers and watercolors.

We love your fashionable and fruity drawings. What inspired you to draw these types of illustrations?

I just draw whatever I like and take it from there.

If you had to draw a famous celebrity/ or an important figure in history in your funky style, who would you choose?

I would most likely do more pictures of Frida Kahlo.

How would you use the Kiss and Makeup papercraft collection AND which is your favourite product from this line?

I like the stickers the most and would probably put them on my computer and phone or maybe as part of a drawing.


Which other designers do you look up to? 

My favorite designer is Donald Robertson.

What advice would you give to the future generation of designers?

I would say just to keep working at your craft every day and to not give up

Do you like to craft?

I'm more into painting and drawing than crafting.

If we gave you a million pounds how would you spend it?

I would pay off any student loan debts, buy a house and have money left for traveling. dovecraft_kiss_make_up_13.jpg

Loving the Kiss & Make up range at the moment it's different.



always great to find out more about the Designers and what inspires them. I'm really liking the Kiss n Make Up collection, it's fun, funky and bit quirky - perfect for modern makes, and those lip shaped brads are fab-u-lous!! :)
