My CLANdestine designs are inspired by the Up Helly Aa fire festival held each January in Lerwick on the Shetland Islands. Rather than fire, I’ve concentrated on the viking motifs on shields and boats which also feature strongly in the festival. I visited Shetland a number of years ago, but in the summer – I’m keen to return and experience the Up Helly Aa festival for myself!

The motifs are all hand drawn, and I have built up additional layers in some designs as well as including a placement print option.
