I believe a garden is an important space. I love gardening and I find it very good for my mental & physical health. I have been struggling to begin on a project that requires me to draw trains, so I procrastinated by drawing something I love – plants and gardens. I have also included aContinue reading “The Garden”
Two houses I have lived in. Obviously these are connected to my ‘All The houses I’ve Ever Lived In’ project – but I’m not entirely sure why they now exist. (Apart, perhaps, from submitting them to Grayson Perry’s Art Club under the theme of ‘Home’).
Most recently I’ve been working on a model. I used to work as a model maker for Aardman, Bumper Films & Limbs & Things Ltd, so I guess it makes sense. I’ve made models before – but why now? I have just chosen to end a particularly unproductive relationship with an agent. I was clingingContinue reading “Crazy Kat”
I’m just leaving this here because I’ve unintentionally updated my blog’s theme (the old one now being lost forever). I am not used to it! I want my visitors to see a range of my work, not just the latest blog post (hairy, biker blokes in this particular instance) and so here are a fewContinue reading “Recent Work”

Just a range of sketches from recent trips out and about. I really like drawing people (and giant fantasy people in rocks, obvs).
I love music and the lyrics of songs are really important to me. Deciding to illustrate a song has come out of wanting a project. I didn’t want to write the words myself because I have written a couple of children’s books which have not been successful in capturing the hearts and minds of anyContinue reading “The Bones Of You”
Well, I’m still going. There should be twenty when I am finished, even though I have lived in over 24 houses (counting everywhere I have lived for more than 3 months). What I think I am interested in here, not only the buildings themselves – but the potential for hinting at, or picking out someContinue reading “More Little Boxes”
Wonky, naive little paintings of houses.
I have been exceptionally quiet completely silent on my blog over the past few months. I have been working hard on work for an exhibition that took place over the summer at Chelmsford Museum. I have taken a year’s sabbatical from my part-time teaching job in order to concentrate on developing my own freelance work andContinue reading “The Importance of Planning”
