Hoarding Commission

Posted on Updated on

So excited and delighted with the unveiling of the “Olympic Park Fauna and Flora” hoarding created in collaboration with myself, Rosetta Art Centre and Children from Chobham Academy.

The collaged animals were created by children in years 3,4,5 and 6 in a series of workshops which I facilitated, I’ve then traced sing Adobe Illustrator and popped onto an illustrated background.

The piece has been commissioned by Taylor Wimpey and will be on permanent display in the Olympic Park (Stratford).

Book of Anthologies

Posted on

Finally beating the creative block…first page of the book of anthologies for my final MA ┬ápiece coming along nicely.

“My daughter has Flat Pig. A toy I was not fond of as it is visually lacking. She was given it when she was born. It is still loved very much and she is now 10 years old. Among all the cute teddies and other cuddlies for me it was an odd bond. However, now I love it too. Flat Pig still lacks for me any visual impact but as she loves it so much and when i look at it i see beyond the toy and can visualise her playing, cuddling, chatting to it. I will also confess Flat Pig has stood the test of time among all the toys we own. I have put him away to give cute teddy a chance and hope she bonds with my favourite bear among her bears. Only days later to be asked by a very worried face ‘ I can’t find Flat Pig’ and had I seen it. I can post his picture later too. He is currently being cuddled by her fast asleep arms.

When asked why he is so special I was simply told ‘ …because he is Flat Pig’. In a way that also said ‘…can’t believe you asked me that, can’t you see it!?’.”

‘My Flat Pig’

Commissions

Posted on Updated on

Beautiful hand collaged birds created by 7 & 8 year olds in a recent workshop I facilitated for a large-scale commission piece.
I am now tracing the drawings on Illustrator (40 of them by hand) to create a large composition print which will go up in a public space (I’ll reveal all after next Wednesday).

But I just think the children’s work looks so lovely and the crisp lines created from tracing give them a really graphic, clean edge..I’m so happy and excited by the unfolding results!
