Work taken on by Nottingham Contemporary!
After a meeting last week I'm pleased to announce that the Nottingham Contemporary (due to open 14th November) will be stocking 6 of my card designs! My cards will feature alongside the likes of David Shrigly and Jon Burgerman- very exciting.

- 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.
