Unique, unusual artworks created from vintage ephemera.
I'm an artist, illustrator and magpie. Having originally trained as a printed textile designer I am now a full time artist.
I work from my studio (aka "The Shed") in my garden here in Buckinghamshire. Over the years I have amassed a rather large collection of vintage maps, music manuscripts, old books and other interesting paper ephemera. These are the source material for my art, I use the lyrics, book pages and maps as both my painting ground and for my inspiration. The subject matter always relates in some way to the vintage piece I have chosen to paint on and as the items from my collection that I choose to repurpose as artworks are generally damaged and disintegrating I am giving otherwise unloved, old pieces of printed history a new lease of life.
Perfect as an unusual gift, a momento of a special place or just as a piece of art to decorate your home.
