My postcards created for the International Postcard Show at the Surface Gallery in Nottingham. I used blue, white and gold ink and various paper ephemera on the postcard base, the building drawings are acrylic ink on kraft brown paper.

I’ve tried to show how the gold ink catches the light in the last two images.

The opening night for the show is 12th January and is on until 10th February.

A couple of artworks created for an upcoming exhibition in Cradley Heath, each piece is a building/place of interest to me around the West Midlands. Both pieces have image transferred diagrams, text and images relating in some way to the building subject matter.

Gas Holders


Now I’m finished with my Masters (apart from my graduation in March next year) I’ve been going through my artwork and sorting what needs to go into storage. The next few posts might be a little random in theme as I’ll just be photographing and posting stuff that hasn’t been archived yet.

These are the forst two. They were both produced in my third year of my BA, these were made as some early responses to my research into the industrial sublime and the landscape around my home county (West Midlands) in the UK. These are gas holders in West Brommich.

Both untitled, pen and coloured ink on newsprint paper, 59.4 x 42 cm approx

New Studio Space

As the Art Therapy MA operates in the same building as us at University and it doesn’t run throughout the summer like we do, I’ve been able to use one of their studios for the rest of the semester. I’m still in the process of setting it up and moving stuff over to here.

I get this studio all to myself until early September, extremely happy. Although the fact that someone drew a crown for the clock unnerves me.

Look at all the space. I’m hoping to start a 3 x 1.5 m work on Monday/Tuesday next week.
