I was invited to produce a site specific illustration for the Converse store in Carnaby Street. It is part of the 1HUND(RED) initiative, that brings together a hundred artists from around the globe to celebrate the artistic spirit and help eliminate AIDS in Africa.http://www.converse.com/#100ArtistsRed I created the image using masking tape!
We paid a visit to our neck of the woods, The Yorkshire Sculpture Park http://www.ysp.co.uk to drop off my new collection which will be soon available online and in store.
We viewed work of the great twentieth century artist IsamuNoguchi, strolled across fields full of sheep and sculptures and contemplated life as we looked up to the sky scape in James Turrell's deer shelter.
We hung our wish upon the tree for a life of love, laughter and success!

It's been back to the print room for me. It has taken blood, sweat and tears...nearly.... to produce my new collection. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! Here's a sneak preview, I have created eight designs in total with a print run of twenty off each. Please watch this space!
Yet again another relaxing time was had by all on the farm in North Devon. The children had fun collecting the eggs from the chickens everyday and feeding all their reacquainted animal friends. Lots of bouncing,tractor riding and lazy days on the beach were spent by all. A great vacation, see you again next year Pudding the pony!
Please take a moment of your time and visit this show. It's an exhibition which explores diverse approaches to drawing by staff from the School of Art & Design at Nottingham Trent University One of my pieces is in this show, see if you can spot it!
Langar Hall, what a great venue to celebrate Matt's special day. We celebrated with local food, cheese and wine. The place was beautiful, why did it take us so long to discover this enchanting place....Spend a penny in the ladies and take a peek at the wallpaper
Spring is here and new ideas are on the horizon for a new body of work I am about to create. We had a fantastic day at the Lakeside Arts Centre, admired the photographic works of Andy Lock. The Little Gallery Art Group responded well to the exhibition, we created a series of monoprints.
