Introducing Ashley Le Quere

So long, fare well, auf wiedersehen, good bye Ashley!

The last three months we have had the luck of having some help from the lovely Ashley Le Quere, a very talented illustrator who loves screen printing. We wish her well on her travels to India and Oz!

Ashley Le Quere graduated from the University of the West of England in 2009 where she studied Illustration. When she is  not drawing she loves to have a good cup of tea and a slice of cake. To find out more about Ashle please visit her website and blog!

Sample Sale Repeat

Ella organize a sample sales in her studio in London in April 2012


Thank you to all who made it to our sample sale in March. We were delighted to meet so many of our customers personally and surprised by how many of you emailed us to say you were sorry you couldn't make it. So, we’ve decided to organize another studio sale this month. There will still be plenty of stock of cushions, coasters, table mats, mugs, trays, paper products, etc. - and it may be the last big studio sale for a while as we’ll be moving most of our stock to a fulfillment centre. The date for the last sample sale is;

Friday 27th April 10am-7pm
Saturday 28th April 11am-5pm

The studio is a walking distance from Haggerston Overground station, and we're tucked in between two residential homes. Hope to see you then!

The address is;

Ella Doran Design Ltd.
57a Lawford Road
London N1 5BJ

Herefordshire in Spring

I had a lovely few days in Herefordshire this Easter - the countryside was so refreshing for me - it was cold, but the mad april showers and blustery weather seemed to clear the air and make the atmosphere all the more refreshing and colourful when the sun appeared. The rapeseed fields were particularly fantastic - for those who have not been it's a beautiful part of the countryside and well worth a visit!
once I got over this stile the sheep ran away - but I managed to capture a few close ups of the beautiful lambs
