My god what a crazy month! Apologies for the lack of posting recently, I've been ridiculously busy!
Here is a shot from the Apples and Pears market in Snienton on Saturday. I'm pleased to say the weather was very kind to us and lots of people showed their support. I had a cake stall next to me too- a pretty good position I think!

- 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.
