Some Spanish tomatoes

Vintage puzzle

A recent trip to Frome turned up this exquisite, colourful elephant plywood puzzle by Galt Toys. I've become quite obsessed with vintage 70s objects. The style and simplicity is very inspiring, but a pity they don't take long to do.

Up the Tube

I will be participating in an exhibition called 'Pure' at the Tube Gallery, Woodstock, Oxfordshire. It starts in January and continues until the end of March 2012. I will be exhibiting a selection of framed prints alongside other artists. The Tube Gallery has an integral cafe, bar and courtyard and showcases some really first class art, design and craft, all set in a beautiful part of the country.

Paul Smith

I have been working with Paul Smith, New York to create packaging for my foiled bird card range. They will be sold in sets of six and will be available in the Spring 2012. 'Bird Box' will contain individual sets of bright and metallic designs and maybe also on sale in the UK and the rest of Europe.

Unlimited Xmas

Unlimited Editions in Brighton are having an Xmas Open Studio/Shop which starts today the 23rd November. Doors will be open 5 days a week for four weeks. I will be among 35 contemporary designers on show and I have created an exclusive four colour screen print for the occasion and the studio entitled 'Ice Hound'.


Mshed show

Mshed is a spanking new museum located on Bristol's historic dockside that is dedicated to telling the amazing history of Bristol, through the objects and stories of the people who have made the city what it is today.

Drawn in Bristol and Mshed have given me the opportunity to exhibit some of my work with a mixture of prints and product from 5th November to 30th December. The museum is free and well worth a visit.

New fancy feathered prints

My Pigeon Fancier screen print has been reissued in mid grey and deep pink. They are a larger limited edition of 50 and measure 210mm wide by 160mm high. The paper is Fabriano smooth at 300gsm with a trimmed edge.

'Fling of Sandpipers' is a new image. It has the same spec as above but is printed in a colour associated with window putty, a sandy warm grey.
