4 full days live drawing at Ralph Lauren's Polo flagship store on Regent Street

I had a great time over the Royal Wedding weekend, working on the first floor of the beautiful Regency building. Staff were very welcoming and it was great to work in a place with a lovely 'family feeling'! The glitzy opening evening was attended by the fashion glitterati who came to listen to Ginnie Chadwyck-Healey who gave a fabulous talk on the styling of Ralph's new collection. The following 3 days I spent linked up to a large monitor where guests were invited to try on the new collection, styled by the staff. I then sketched them on my iPad Pro, emailing the illustrations directly to them. 

Harvey Nichols launch Malée natural beauty products in collaboration with illustrator Jacqueline Bissett

The launch of Malée's new soy candles in Harvey Nichols coincided with Mother's Day so I had a busy 2 days illustrating portraits on tote bags in the Beauty Lounge on the ground floor.

I've been enjoying a fabulous collaboration with Malée whose natural beauty products are divine! With ingredients and inspiration from Africa, the products are gorgeous- my favourites are the Conditioning Body Scrub in Verdure which makes your skin SO soft, finish with their gorgeous moisturising oil. These are great products with a wonderfully resfreshing scent and not too feminine so even my husband approves!

Last month we worked on a little 'film' for the illustration work that I did for the packaging. The brief was to be inspired by Malée Masquerade photographs to create something lively and be able to reproduce in different colour ways for the 3 scents.

Mac no.3 event - Covent Garden

Another fabulous day drawing customers at Mac's stand alone James St store. Had a very busy and very hot day working alongside talented MUA's (only just worked out what that stood for- lol!) I think I drew nearly 40 portraits- it was crazy and full on but great fun!
