Hi, I'm Gem Blastock



An Artist based in Broadstairs, specialising in Pointillism and Screen printing.

Using my abundance of illustrations as the foundation to my print work, I draw inspiration from my surroundings and our native coast line. Through my unique skill of dot drawing I create powerful realistic illustrations, reflecting my own story of growing up on the Thanet Coast in Kent. 
I have always been creative, since I was small and I have always had the urge to draw and paint. I remember getting my first patterned rubber stamp set and soon I became obsessed with arranging these stamps so the print patterns were in line, to then happily colour it in. This was the beginning of my journey in print and pattern. This led me to Buckinghamshire New University to study and graduate (in 2004) in Textiles Design, specialising in interior print design.
 
.
I have a small business, TG Textiles, creating wonderful handmade nostalgic homewares that spark stories and memories for my clients homes, reflecting how amazing it is to share their story. Turning their house into their loving home.

This spirit of nature is carried through my handmade-quality and sustainable printed products that love our planet.

Home is where the story begins….
