This dashing design was created from an original hand-drawn illustration – a crowd of little white cats with attitude jump on a black background, forming a playful heart-shaped pattern.

I’m finding the way back home to my old loves of illustration, printmaking, drawing and design, after ages spent working in the crazy haphazard world of dance and theatre. I also design under the name of Scruff, which comes from my longstanding reputation as someone who can’t keep her artwork clean and tidy (luckily, computers came along and saved me from a life of smudgy blobs and fingerprints).
