Myself and my lovely, extremely talented friend Ani Passarelli have been working together for the past few months to create a lifestyle brand from our illustrations and crafts: ‘A-to-V Collective’.
We would love it ever so much if you would be kind enough to ‘Like’ our Facebook page
Thank you so very much

The piece is representative of ‘Poplar past, present and future’ the suffragettes in East London through to the development works and employment opportunities and communites in Tower Hamlets now…
This is an outreach project which I’ve been working on for several weeks. The individual illustrations have been created by Tower Hamlets based community groups (including local primary schools, classes for elderly participants and a few of my own characters).
The image represents Poplar; past, present and future, from the suffragettes in East London, the current, constant redevelopment work and new high rise flats and the future of the area: further construction and jobs for local people.
I have a finalising meeting on Wednesday morning and the finished result will be put on permanent display at Poplar DLR station. This is a local station to me and it feels very exciting and a privilege to be involved in the making of something so close to home.
I have been collaborating with talented fashion and graphic designer Ani Passarelli to create a new lifestyle brand (I’ll be telling you more tomorrow) but have a sneak peek at our vintage inspired colour-in dolls and how we’ve been adorning ours.
They make a wonderful stocking filler for children or an artwork for adults.
Hello everyone, I’m sorry for being a stranger of late…It’s been a busy few months initially finalising my MA and more recently working on a large textile collection with my agent Xander Kastroma, for our client (I can’t say too much at the moment-but all will be revealed before long).
Prints have been based around my 2015 ‘Tree of Life & Growth’ illustration which has been inspired from the fantastically quirky and somewhat naive illustrations from medieval beasturies and adapted characters (developed from my drawings at the Grant Museum of Zoo-ology UCL).
A classic, yet quirky and contemporary series to add colour, character and life to the space they are placed in…
They’ll be available to purchase from my Etsy Shop and commercial clients in a few weeks.
Anyway here’s a sneak peak of the mood boards, inspiration and concept for the cushion collection…
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).
