A lovely place for a textile designer to while away a hot Saturday afternoon in Chiang Mai.

Pictured above is the Australian artist and designer Chris Chun's lovely studio in Chiang Mai, Thailand, my base for the next month. I have escaped the wintry weather at home for a few weeks of tropical heat, quality design time and plenty of mango smoothies and iced tea.
Chris and I are working on a new collection of hand painted designs for licensing.
My messy desk and an inspiration pin board for new designs.
A delicious macaroon and a few little paintings.
My hot pink ride to work - Thai style!

Just a short stroll away from Chris Chun's design studio is the Chiang Mai plant and flower market. Many of the plant stalls are filled with gorgeous orchids - the steamy hot weather obviously provides the optimum growing conditions for these beauties. And the optimum conditions for some very unattractive swollen ankles!
