This is me getting my hair and make up done for a photo-shoot. My hairdresser (seen here) is entering a competition for Young Colourist of the Year, put on by Loreal. I was asked to be the model, and in preparation had my hair coloured ginger, and underwent 3 hours of hair styling to get it like an afro! I should hopefully get a copy of the final picture soon, so will post that when I can. The pictures were taken by Dani Riot, who was great!

Catch me, and some of my fellow friends from Together We Flew at the Love Easy Fair, 6-9 pm, Friday 11th February.
This event aims to raise funds for a major refurb of the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow. Therefore, you will be required to pay £2 at the door. Please stop by if you can for a great evening, and be sure to find me and say Hi!

2 weeks ago I received my regular Alumni newsletter from the University of The Arts London, and read about a postcard auction that Chelsea was putting on. They were inviting people to create a postcard in whatever technique suited them, and they are all to be auctioned off at the end of February to raise money for Fine Art.

I thought I would give it a go this year, and the above monogram design is what I will be submitting.  I have wanted to do an alphabet for so long now, and find myself getting very side tracked from all the plans I had. This was a great opportunity to go back and give it a go. I am very eager now to do an entire alphabet and have them ready to be put up in my shop.  The auction itself is on 28th and results in a black tie event, which I have been invited to. Other artists involved are Anish Kapoor, and Jeremy Deller. It’s all very exciting!

Last week I was contacted via Twitter, by Robin, who is behind Brighton Pod. He said he like my work, and would I be interested in joining Brighton Pod. I immediately checked out the site, and was impressed! It is such a good looking website that really focuses on the products, and I was eager to be a part of it. 
This is what Brighton Pod is about according to the site:
A shopping portal dedicated to promoting the work of Britain’s most talented independent designers and craftspeople – Brighton POD is the fast, simple and ethical alternative to shopping in our franchise-choked high streets.
Well, who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?! 
Robin sent me some info, and I applied officially through the site, and today I posted my first items up! I am looking forward to a fruitful and exciting relationship with Brighton Pod! 
I will be creating some exclusive geometric prints especially for the shop so keep your eyes peeled for those 😀
