Work in Progress: Ray and the Rocket
Be part of the story! Help fund the publication of my first picture book Ray and the Rocket. The book is currently in production. It will be narrated entirely through pictures telling the story of a boy's adventures traveling through space with Ray the Robot.
What makes this wrapping paper so important?
Every time I look at these patterns new ideas start popping out at me. For example they have already gone on to inspire a whole range of projects from handmade sculptures, designs for tote bags, clothing for one of my characters in the forthcoming picture book to even an experimental moving image piece entitled emerald skies. And I'm sure that there's more ideas still to come.

Kickstarter Campaign - Ethical Products From A New Creative Business
In 2013, I created a Kickstarter campaign to widen the range of products available for sale. The campaign was a huge success. It raised the money required to get a new range of Mugs, Pop-Out Baubles and Wrapping Paper on sale. It also generated much needed publicity.
"Such a beautiful product. I bought 10 sheets for my tree so it is full to the brim with these baubles and lights. Well done for coming up with the product. I will keep a look out for further creations from your company."
"I absolutely love this wrapping paper book by Bright Stem It’s really pretty, and super useful for someone like me who is travelling loads over the holidays (often to places where I can’t bring wrapped presents in my bags)!"
