Creative Collage Workshops

Posted on Updated on

I had a wonderful time at the creative collage workshop this afternoon at The James Wigg Practice (Kentish Town).
Experimenting with collage, materials and composition reminded me so much of my first term of university and made me think about how much I miss just having the time to experiment and create with no set brief…

I’ve made a promise to myself to attend as many Art workshops/courses as possible…I feel them to be one of the best sources of inspiration for projects and the more creative processes one can use the more boundaries can be broken through/combined when creating…

I’m tempted to scan this one in and make a repeat pattern on Photoshop with the vase.
I can’t recommend the workshops enough, they’re completely free to do and re-start on Friday 11th March (2-5pm).

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

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.

Interactive Art Event @ Free Space Gallery 2

Last Thursday I held my second Interactive Art Event in aid of Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer at Free Space Gallery (Kentish Town Health Centre).

It was a lovely morning, buzzing with people waiting for their doctors appointments and many got involved and added to the wallpaper…which is looking GREAT!

Thank you to everyone who’s added to the wallpaper so far and to those who have donated to the charities. xInteractive Art Event 10606352_681603255257015_8743530544160946459_n 10612883_681603211923686_2061218425619418308_n 10639470_681603075257033_5305158495457063039_n 10689419_681603271923680_8347501869047854632_n 10698529_681603135257027_8836573801271634414_n
