I am taking part in my first group exhibition which can be seen at the Boxbird Gallery, 14 St. Johns Road, Hove, East Sussex until May 27th.
The exhibition is titled A-B and features 30 great artists and illustrators, all with very affordable signed silk screened prints to buy.

This is my contribution, a four colour handprinted silkscreened print featuring 5 classic cars each with their classic drivers and is selling for £80 here. Limited edition of 30.

Green Saucepans

Green as in eco and not the colour. Apparently most saucepans and casserole dishes leak out harmful chemicals when heated up but not these little beauties! 
When does it ever stop?

Hairbrush Singing

Yes, yes, we've all done it but the thing is not to get seen doing it.

Lexi Loves......

This is a job I did fairly recently for a personal client. Alexia Durtnell is a great girl with a gorgeous shop. She came to me for  a new design for promotional postcards and this is what we came up with.
She sells all lovely bits and bobs, ribbons, buttons, beautiful fabrics... exactly the kind of place I would not be able to resist if I was passing by. If you happen to be in Cirencester, then please check it out.
Lexi loves.... is at 57 Cricklade Street.

Boxbird is a great gallery in Hove run by Graham Carter and Alice Teague "boxbird gallery" and I have just been accepted to participate in their next exhibition which will be taking place in April this year. The title of the exhibition is " from A to B " and I have been looking into doing some silkscreens. I have been working digitally for so long that it's quite exciting to be coming up with a whole new method of working.
Check back later to see what I come up with.

single on valentines day?

If you happen to be single, don't mooch around on Valentine's Day. Get out there and have some fun, go ice skating, invite some friends over for dinner or  have a special "me" day and indulge yourself with wine, chocolates and a great bubble bath for one.
