The Nottingham Craft Mafia site has been tweaked and looking tip top!
I created the illustration to form the top banner for Summer/Autumn theme which the updated website has been based around. Go to the Craft Mafia website to see the full site in action! Thank you to Belinda for putting it all together- Belinda will also be building my website in the next few months too.

- 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.
