These are previously unseen originals which I completed during my Illustration Short Course at Chelsea. 
The above image is of a selection of shoes, including my own, created using collage and hand drawn techniques. 
Below is an illustration inspired by the poem of T.S.Elliot, ‘Growltiger’s Last Stand’ and it was the first time I had ever attempted to illustrate from a piece of text.  I am quite pleased with the results.

I am currently building up what I like to call a library of images. In my library so far, there is a variety of paper cut trees in various shapes and colours, and hand drawn mountains.  I soon hope to add cabins and tents so I can start building up a sense of place. To help me with this I have constructed these really simple backgrounds in Photoshop, which should add to the sense of distance and isolation I am aiming for.  My work is really steam-rolling ahead now, and this weekend I plan on getting a new, and well deserved printer, so I can start pumping out my images for your delight. This obviously means that it will not be long before I will be opening up my new Etsy store. I hope to be selling A4 prints, postcards, badges, pocket mirrors, keyrings, brooches and necklaces. I also have plans to start up a bi-annual zine, so if anyone has any advice or wants to be a part of this future venture then please contact me.
