I was so happy to be included in issue 8 of Uppercase Magazine. They asked for modern versions of the classic matchbox label sets. I decided to delve into my vintage 'Tales from Russia' book (where I discovered the tale of The Firebird) and I did a series of cards based on the stories inside.

My very talented friend Jen Collins also had some matchbox labels included - she based hers on scottish wildlife (including my favourite the squirrel above) You can buy Jen's matchbox labels as prints in her shop (I have just treated myself )


  1. i love both your collections. beauties!

  2. I have an original Firebird concertina, if I may be so bold to brag. heh heh.

  3. was thinking of getting them made up as business cards...if I do I promise to send you two a set!
