Laser-cut jewellery collaboration

Posted on

I’ve recently been collaborating with super talented Fashion designer and friend Ani Passarelli, to bring you a bespoke handmade jewellery range.
Pieces from this collection are illustrations which have been laser-cut from plywood, hand painted back and come on a high quality gold plated chain or leather cord.

Anyway here’s our flying duck (he’s the only one left) he’s available here.

Fabric painting class for children

Posted on

Every Saturday (until next week as we finish for the year) I teach Art on the Saturday school programme for Newham based 8-12 year olds at Rosetta Art Centre.

We’ve had a fantastically rich six months, covering ceramics, drawing, painting techniques, mixed media, ceramics and last Saturday had splendid results; we worked as a team and painted large-scale Aboriginal inspired animals onto a banner.

I think it looks fantastic…

Textile banner

Here is the result of  four print and embroidery workshops with ‘the knit and chat’ group at Splash Arts. The theme running through each of the sessions was WW2, women’s role during the war and influencing female fashion from the 30’s to the 50’s.

In the class we explored screen-printing, mono-printing, appliqué and hand-embroidery and participants created individual samples each week on our theme…it was great fun!

My first Narrative

Posted on

Hi everyone, my apologies for being so quiet of late, I have been studying for an Illustration MA and between studying and teaching I have been working non-stop up until now.

Anyway, below is a look at my first ever narrative project (a story aimed at girl’s aged 7-9) called ‘Kitty And The Crocodile’, it is a story of friendship and acceptance, designed to be emotive and sweet.

After I finish my course in September it is my aim to publish it as an e-book and a one-off, sensory textile book with hand embellishment.

It still needs a bit of development and extra pages, but here’s a trailer…
