Wedding Commission

I love doing commissions, it gives me the opportunity to make something extra personal and special... I was asked to include the couple, the words and date. I really enjoyed making it and love how it turned out.

old skool

  I'm really enjoying working in a new medium...new to me anyway...Tempera painting is pretty much as old as you can get, and this is probably why I love it so much...like with etching I get a feeling of being connected to past traditions. I've been experimenting with my own found pigments in nature...chalk, mud, blackberries, charcoal but also bought some fine ground pigments from Cornellison & Son in London...an art shop founded in 1855.

positive action




it was good to be part of this...but it feels so overwhelming and urgent to make the changes now...what to do... ? Positive thoughts and positive action... Listen to Emma Thompsons speech on the day quoting Desmond Tutu... I think this gives us some guidance...We have the power to make the changes we need to, we need to demand that these big companies clean up their act  , the technology is there to create a cleaner future   ... and look at these photos of the people of the world coming together

Dead Men

Sam Astley is a musician, guitarist, producer and frontman to Penny Orchids. He also produces music for film,  and his recent project  'Back Issue' won first prize at Danny Boyles' Shuffle Short Film Festival.
He asked me to create a film as a backdrop to DEAD MEN: Short Stories in Music at Lime Wharf, London. The film was used to inspire improvised instrumental music played live to an audience. I enjoy experimenting with moving images, the awe and wonder of nature captured in a moment, the simple beauty of the natural world and our relationship with it. Sometimes I think life or time is like a movie that can be broken down into frames...and along the way we do our own edit.
Here are a few pictures from the eve... mostly photos whilst setting up... more to come...


 


Angel

I really enjoy working on different creative projects.  Tom and I made these wings for a music video -  Feather Clever - The Telescreens watch here...!

PoPs



A recent discovery! This is my Dad, the photographs were taken in the late 70's...I think he must have been about 20 years old.
He's currently making his last ever batch of hand made tattoo machines, if you want one... quick click batwing ...
