Illustrations for BAFTA Screen Lit Festival
Here are a series of illustrations I was recently commissioned to do for BAFTA in association with Rocliffe Writing Forum and Broadway Arts Cinema, Nottingham. I created 3 illustrations which formed the backdrops for the 3 plays. The plays were selected by BAFTA for up and coming writing talent. It was a fantastic evening and quite exciting for me to see my work on the cinema screen! Thank you to the wonderful Ursula Kelly for these beautiful photos taken on the evening.

- 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.
