surface design using mixed media layered techniques

Using bateque then scrunching and rubbing bruso inks into the paper. Wax acts as a risiting leaving the wax as the actual drawn image.

Paper from a book dipped in wax, this is really effective as the paper goes see through and you can see the text from both sides of the paper layered.

Photography + Lomo

some workshop examples from exploritory

write up in the cumberland news of mine and Maggie Toner Edgar's stall at the nostalger meets design vintage fair in Reghed

For this fair I had a collection of customised garments and hand made accessories both old and new catering to a younger, more alternative audience. I sold a lot of my designs including the fascinater bellow. It was such an amazing day and made some really good contacts, especially working along side Maggie being a hat designer herself.
