Tea Collage February 19, 2018 19:17

I've been experimenting with line drawing and collage in an attempt to introduce more colour into my work. I love the result and plan to explore to further and take this design style into my printed homewares

    Huge Table Top February 13, 2018 10:34

    I made this table top which consists of a white painted piece of mdf with hand cut black patterned stencils. It’s cut in 3 and has hinges do I can fold it up and put it away....it was only used at Xmas when there were 10 of us for lunch! It took me weeks to make...mad!

    Window Treatment February 06, 2018 11:48

    I have some paper cuts hanging in my windows at home. They've been there for quite a while and are surprisingly robust. I just love the patterned shadows they create when the sun streams through the window

    Xmas Table January 12, 2018 15:30

    Our usual dining table wasn't big enough to fit all our guests round it for Xmas lunch so I had to come up with a simple alternative. I bought an 8x4 piece of mdf, painted it and decorated it with black stencils. It was cut into 3 pieces and they were held together with hinges so that we can fold it up and keep it for next year. It seemed like a good idea to quickly knock something up in the fortnight before Xmas however it took me forever and I ended up staying til the early hours most nights!

    New Paper Cutting Template January 11, 2018 12:00

    I have created this design from recent plant drawings in my sketch book specifically as a paper cutting template for my website. It can be printed onto A4 paper - you just need to cut out all the white areas -  and then collaged onto a piece of A4 paper and framed and you will have created your very own paper cut artwork


    Spider Plant Drawing January 10, 2018 14:00

    This is one of the many spider plants that I now own, due to their prolific breeding habits! These leaf shapes will be cropping up in my new work shortly.

    I'm feeling really inspired by house plants at the moment. I love the shapes and movement and they make my space feel healthy.. This collage contains references to leaf and flower shapes.

    New Compositions January 08, 2018 13:00

    I adore the work of Ben Nicholson - he's one of my favourite artists. This piece is inspired by his reliefs, although his work is so simple and beautiful and I struggle to stop making marks!
