'Journeys- Imagined and Real'

I am continuously observing and drawing.
I capture people, places, objects...
This summer I am starting a new body of work with the narrative theme:

'Journeys- Imagined and Real'

I am creating large paintings and prints.
I will develop these from drawings I have made, these are stored in 100 sketchbooks on shelves in my studio. I will also make new works as I travel in Italy this summer. 

To start my project, here are two original drawings of chairs I am screenprinting this week to create limited edition prints to sell.

Varoom Lab and Birmingham City University 'Visionary' Symposium


I presented a Pecha Kucha presentation at the 'Visionary' symposium entitled 'Illustrator as Detective: Discovery through Drawing.’ 

I am an illustrator and I am currently producing an innovative drawing project with the Museum of East Asian Art  that interrogates concepts of illustrator and illustration as visionary. In producing this project I act as a visionary through exploring drawing as a tool for looking beyond the obvious, to truly study and discover an object within a museum collection.

The Big Draw 2015

Yesterday I led The Big Draw event at The Museum of East Asian Art, Bath. 

This unique museum houses a fine collection of ceramics, jades, bronzes and much more from China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia.  The Museum of East Asian Art is the only museum in the UK solely dedicate to arts and cultures of East and Southeast Asia. 

Visitors were told about the fascinating collection.
How difficult it is to carve jade. Where some of the museum objects were discovered, including a junk shop in Australia! And how to distinguish different Buddhas.

Here are some of the drawings made on the day in response to studying objects and learning their individual stories. The drawings are exhibited in the museum for the month.

I'm running The Big Draw event at the Museum of East Asian Art in Bath on Saturday 10th October.

'Select and draw your favourite object in the museum and decorate it with your own patterns, or take inspiration from the collection. The drawings produced will be displayed throughout October in the museum. 

This event is part of the Big Draw Festival – Every Picture Tells a Story.'
