NHS Commission

Posted on Updated on

I’ve finalised my NHS commission, the finished artworks will be hung in Kentish Town Health Centre Baby and conference room.

Originally the Artworks have been hand illustrated by me and coloured by adults and children during my Interactive Art workshops (which were held to raise funds for charities Breast Cancer Care Beating Bowel Cancer).

I’ve spent several days cleaning up the images on photoshop, altering the contrast levels and cleaning the background of marks, but striving to keep the pictures as close to the originals as possible, showing both the precise intricate patterns onto the characters garments and the ‘outside the lines’ colouring and scribbles from the little ones who got involved….

These three will be produced as framed, A1 Giclee prints

Here’s a sneak peak at an NHS commission I’m currently working on, which will go on display in Kentish Town Health Centre Baby & Conference room.

I was approached after my solo exhibition as the trustees especially liked my Interactive Wallpaper Project, (which was held in aid of Breast Cancer Care and Beating Bowel Cancer).

Just Giving Art Fundraiser in memory

Posted on

So the last twelve months I’ve been updating lots on my Interactive Wallpaper Project, in which I’ve hand Illustrated a roll of wallpaper, taking it around London Galleries and Spaces including: Debut Contemporary, CGP Gallery and Free Space Gallery asking members of the public to colour in or paint the characters.

I’ve now set up a Just Giving Page in which people can name a character in honour a loved one or indeed themselves as a lasting tribute to everyone whose fought Cancer. In return for the donation I will name a character of you choice after that person, or for a donation of fifteen pounds I will Illustrate that person onto the wallpaper by hand.

The two completed rolls of wallpaper will be exhibited at a solo show at Free Space Gallery in February 2015.

I lost my dear Stepfather Tim to Bowel Cancer in 2009 and now want to put my creative energy into  a project to help others and to honour Tim.
