CPG Gallery Annual Open #29

Posted on

On Wednesday I saw one of my ‘Surreal Fashion Doll’ series up at CPG Gallery for the first time:– where it is being exhibited as part of the Annual Open #29.

The Exhibition finishes on Sunday 1st December so I strongly recommend going along for a look; it is a wonderful exhibition showcasing over 350 Artists work, with a hugely diverse range of styles and mediums.


‘Once, in a Dream’ – transition

Posted on Updated on

Here are some updates on how the first painting from my ‘Once in a Dream’ series is coming along; this piece is proving extremely time consuming due to the intricate detailing and beading onto such a large piece (60×30 inches) though admittedly I’m really enjoying spending this length of time on a single piece and the therapeutic qualities of intricate beading.

I am going to start working on 1 or 2 more pieces for the series over the coming days so they can feed inspiration into each other. Inspired by dreams my next ideas will include elements of surreal landscapes and bizarre animal sequences.

Tomorrow is the opening night for exhibition ‘BREW’, (Goswell Rd, London)

I’m packing up and preparing my now complete ‘Alternative Tea Party’ painting, here’s a sneaky peek; note the dapper Mad Hatter!


An Alternative Tea Party’

This painting was created using acrylic, ink and pastel and was inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’, a surreal fantasia.

My fashion illustrations are always inspired by vintage dolls, to which I add a contemporary twist. My Alternative Tea Party, which was inspired by Tim Walker’s fashion photography, resulted in this concoction of curious and whimsical characters.




I always have my original paintings scanned so I can make Ltd Ed prints; I had this one scanned at Clifton Print Services (Bristol), they are very friendly and always provide a top service:
