Coven Magazine






I was excited to contribute to the new issue of the fantastic Coven Magazine this month. The illustration was based on the idea of a summer wreath (as opposed to a Christmas wreath) and used screen print, collage and digital techniques to combine the tropical and mountainous themes of the articles. Read the whole issue online here.

New Studio





I am lucky enough to have moved into a new studio - in the beautiful Carnegie Library which opened in 1906 and still functions as a library today.

Brighton University / V&A Study Day































I organised a study day at the Victoria & Albert museum for Brighton University graphic design and illustration students this week.  The intention of the the day was to introduce students to the museum as a research resource, looking beyond popular press and blogs to uncover more surprising, original and unconventional sources of inspiration.  We heard from curators Matthew Storey and Melanie Lenz in the morning and then I spoke about the collection in the galleries in the afternoon.

'Make Shelter' at the Foundling Museum






An exhibition of work from a community project I have been working on with The Foundling Museum and Peabody Trust is on display at the museum until 1 June.  I worked with young people who live locally to explore the fascinating history of the museum and concepts of shelter through an architectural modelling workshop.

Forage Press





I was invited to contribute an illustration to Forage Press - a San Francisco based website dedicated to publishing work made by creatives exploring music. I chose to illustrate 'Timothy Grub' by Vashti Bunyan, which she wrote in 1968 whilst traveling by horse and cart from London to the Outer Hebrides to live in an artistic commune.
