For those of you missing the Mid Week Mix, fear not, they will be returning soon. It’s just that I’ve got so much news to tell you lately, that they’ve been pushed further down the ‘post pile’, whilst the more recent news comes first !


I’ve been selected to exhibit my work in this year’s Sale Arts Trail and have started preparing new work to show. There will be a collection of 50+ local artists, across a range of different disciplines such as jewellery, ceramics, painting and illustration. The work is displayed in the Waterside Arts Centre as well as participating shops, cafes and businesses around Sale itself.

I thought it would be fun to create some more simplistic pieces that allow the cut of the card to depict the shape of the animals, instead of using a surrounding line to do the same. I quite like the softer look… any thoughts ?

This is my largest piece to date, approx 40 x 50 cms and is painted straight onto torn, collaged pieces of card, which allow splashes of texture and colour to peep through.

Other work takes from the theme of pinned/ mounted butterflies, but in this case, rabbits and birds. The animals stand proud of the ground which gives depth and casts shadows within the illustrations too.

I’m hoping to have a good range of hand made cards too, like the ones below

More work available here. I’m available for commissions, so if you like my style and want something more personal creating, do get in touch. Be sure to put the 10th – 12th July in your diaries and come along to take part in the trail. It should be a great weekend.



Here’s a couple of inspired repeats taken from the collages.
