Hello I'm Ginette, I do graphic design, art, illustration and surface pattern design.
Here on my blog you can see the pictures i've been making, stuff I've been up to and the inspiration I found in fun places like Whistler, Canada and Oxfordshire, England.
You can also view my portfolio for more of my design work, find out about bespoke wedding stationary and take a look at the cards and prints for sale in my shop.

Here is October and November in my calendar of the British Isles. Still finding lovely views and colours even in some very autumnal weather.
October sees some canada geese and boats at Days Lock on the River Thames, with local landmark the Wittenham Clumps in the background. Such a pleasant place for a ramble with Bronza age history and views of South Oxfordshire up on the clumps and a game of Pooh Sticks on the the river.
The November page features Portmeirion in North Wales. It is a glorious, colourful riviera style village in an unexpected place. Built by slightly wacky architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis in the early 20th Century as a tourist desination and a whole lot of fun. I visited a few years ago and it was great, and so much fun to illustrate for my calendar.

I designed a range of t-shirt for sale in The Nook of the North gift shop in Whistler village. I had lots of 1960s poster art inspiration, as well as inspiration from the beautiful coast mountains.

Here's some more British summertime in the July and August pages of my calendar. The joy of the ice cream van at Glastonbury Tor and a cliff top walk on the Isle of Wight towards Sandown. Time to get reading about ley lines and Avalon and sacred geometry at Glastonbury Tor. I went on a really wonderful family trip to the Isle of Wight last summer so here's some holiday snaps of beach huts and fancy hotels and the like.

I designed the order of service, menu and signage for a beautiful wedding at Comrie Croft with the ceremony at Glen Artney Church, full of beautiful people. I illustrated the feathers, foliage and chanterelle mushrooms, and had a great time choosing beautiful fonts.

Here's a few illustrations I'm currently working on, in between doing some glorious spring skiing and sunny bikes rides.

This is the April illustration for my 2018 calendar. Swans on the river Thames and some llamas in the field beyond!

It's a bit chilly for springtime just yet, but hopefully the daffodils will be out soon. Here is the March illustration for my calendar of the British Isles.

Here is Februarys illustration from my 2018 calendar of the British Isles. I took the train from Fort William to Mallaig once with my mum, we crossed over the Glenfinnan Viaduct and it was very dramatic. Also here is the blackhouse village at Gearrannan on the Isle of Lewis and Eilean Donan Castle on the way to Skye. Definitely some places to add to your bucket list.

I have been working on a whole calendar for 2018, featuring lovely places to visit around the British Isles. January is the mysterious white horse at Westbury on a frosty winter day.
You can get the calendar in my shop to enjoy in real life!
I also got inspired and drew a whole series of mysterious old white horses, chalk hill figures and prehistoric standing stones. The very naked Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset, the Uffington white horse in Oxfordshire, the Long Man of Wilmington the mysterious guardian of the South Downs, Callanish standing stones on the Isle of Lewis and of course Stonehenge near grannys house in Wiltshire.
