I win I Dress Myself Competition!
I'm pleased to announce that I am the winner of the "Birds" T-shirt design competition!
My design will be sold through the I Dress Myself website, keep your eyes peeled for a short write up about me featured on the site www.idressmyself.co.uk
I will also be producing a limited edition badge set for them too. A huge thank you to all those who voted for me!

- Inspired by Circuses, Victoriana, and Surrealism I create collage’s combining the past and present through a mixture of found imagery, illustration, photography and drawing. Working with collage and my trusted photocopier I create all of my work by hand, frequenting second hand shops, car boot sales and markets to build up my ever growing archive of second hand books, magazines, photographs and postcards. I always create my work by hand, only using a computer for layout at final stages. I like my illustration to have a certain tangibility, a quality that cannot be captured by digital means alone, even if that is as small as a blob of ink or a smudge on a photocopy.
