Lots of artwork is getting caught up on this week, including finally getting this image finished!
This face pretty much sums up how I feel right now. Tired. Not tired. Hungry. Not hungry. I just don't know!
These great college style varsity sweat jackets are now available in my shop. More designs on the way, or just ask if there's a design you'd like to see.

About

Only Me...

Hi. My name is Helen Temperley.

I am a North East UK based artist and designer living in the ex pit village of Ferryhill in County Durham. I work from home, designing printed t-shirts, clothing and accessories in my studio, and, alongside my mate Sid, renovating furniture in my basement workshop.

My clothing sells around the world, and has been featured in many blogs, websites and magazines, which makes me happy and proud, as I have worked really hard on developing my brand for the last few years, with many ups, downs, and backflips in the process. I have my clothing designs printed digitally onto organic and/or ethically produced items only. No sweatshop stuff allowed!

My designs reflect my love of nature, animals, vintage, and a little bit of my dark side. I like to collage together vintage drawings, as well as mix them up with my own artwork, thoughts and ideas. I also love to work with customer suggestions and ideas, they are sometimes brilliant, and always get my creative juices flowing.

I absolutely love old furniture. I love bringing it back to life. Myself and my work partner Sid have renovated many pieces, working with customers to get exactly the look they want for their beloved old stuff. We take commissions as well as just letting our imagination run loose on bits we find, buy, drag from skips, or get given. Our workshop is quite crammed with all kinds of 'that'll come in usefuls'.

Away from work, I love my home and garden, which is my sanctuary that I share with my son, four cats, two fish, and lots of spiders. I also love music, going out, taking photos (I'm not as good as I'd very much like to be but I try!), reading, being vegan, walking and decorating.

Thanks for visiting, if there's anything you'd like to know or request, just drop me a line.

Helen.

    I have been a freelance artist since 1989. I produce mainly line drawing illustrations. Over the last two years I have been having my work professionally printed on to ethically produced and organic clothing and selling them on Etsy.

    I use Spreadshirt for my apparel printing. They use the Digital Direct printing method, which sprays the ink onto quality items with machines I could never afford! This method gives a beautiful soft finish which really does my artwork justice.
