Papered Parlour

I've started helping out at the Papered Parlour, an awesome company based in Clapham that hold arty events, workshops and have an on-site studio full of talented illustrators, graphic designers, artists and photographers etc. Check them out here.

Here's a couple of little paintings I've done to put on their artist bios and studio leaflets, based on objects I've found around the place.

Sad goodbyes and new beginnings

This blog has been severly abandoned of late. Much preparing for the degree show has left me little time to do anything else!
Anyhooo... the show was amazing. I think everyone did themselves proud!

Here's the work I showed... a mixture from my final major project and my second year work, all representing snapshots of little moments in London.

Many mixed feeling about leaving Uni. I'm super excited about being able to start making my own way in life, starting new projects and seeing what the future brings. But at the same time it'll be sad to leave the ready-made support system and the inspiration you get which comes with working with a class of illustrators, aswell as having my own studio space and facilities to use whenever needed. I'm also beyond gutted that most of my closest friends are moving back home/away from London. Paving a new way on your own is scary. But hopefully the future's bright. I'm also chuffed that today I found out that I'll be graduating with a 2:1 :D

I have a lot of ideas for new projects floating around at the moment, so watch this space!
