Converse Illustration

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. I created the image using masking tape!

a life of love, laughter and success

We paid a visit to our neck of the woods, The Yorkshire Sculpture Park to drop off my new collection which will be soon available online and in store.
We viewed work of the great twentieth century artist Isamu Noguchi, 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!

North Bradbury Farm

Hi we are home!
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!
