Design for good: restoring our planet and wellbeing
I first illustrated Kit the dog during lockdown 2020 – with the purpose of inspiring wellbeing and hope: read more about its wellbeing origins
The illustrations naturally evolved to inspire thoughts and actions for the wellbeing of people and our planet throughout the changing seasons, bringing a smile to social media feeds. I love that posts have been described as ‘inspiring’, ‘beautiful’ and ‘deep’ by readers.
This year I’ve pledged to donate towards saving the bees: they are vital to our survival and wellbeing.

I’m also passionate about the beautiful environment bees thrive in – wildflower meadows.
Being in nature and watching wildlife is beneficial for our wellbeing.
It reconnects us.
It inspires us.
I grew up on an old family farm and loved spending time in the meadow, seeing the mass of buttercups and wild flowers that grew there in the summer.

However, there is still hope, we can give bees a helping hand and make space for nature.
How you can help make our world a better place today
