Contemporary Artists' Books Exhibition - Riverside Gallery:

I am very excited to be exhibiting in the upcoming Contemporary Artists' Books exhibition - at Riverside Gallery, Twickenham, 19 November 2014 to the end of January 2015. This is to coincide with the annual literature festival that is also taking place.


My hand embroidered book Dissociation will be featured, as will my illustrated book Yes, No, Maybe, Crow - with the opportunity to buy limited edition copies of the latter. 


It would be great to see you there. I shall keep you updated! 

crow is rising:


Ever since my dream I have had an idea floating around my mind about a crow creation myth(s).

Little ideas have risen up.

Some stayed on the surface. 


Others remained underground and only echoes surfaced to let me know of their existence. 




The search for the birth of crow continues...

man and his dreams:



"Because there are innumerable things beyond the range of human understanding, we constantly use symbolic terms to represent concepts that we cannot define or fully comprehend. This is one reason why all religions employ symbolic language or images. But this conscious use of symbols is only one aspect of a psychological fact of great importance: Man also produces symbols unconsciously and spontaneously, in the form of dreams."
Carl G. Jung, Man and His Symbols

yes.no.maybe.crow.



Once upon a time I had a dream about a crow that was dying. 
No matter what I tried to do to help the crow I made it more sick.
In despair I held the crow against my heart and I felt a warmth, 
 but I could not tell if it was my heart warming the crow,
or the crows heart warming mine.


I made the below book, called 'Yes No Maybe Crow', as a way of playing with the unconscious processes of my dream. 
I had lots of fun and very much enjoyed the absurdity of what came up.
I hope you will too....

Here I am:

Sorry haven't been around much. Life has just got in the way of making art. This displeases me greatly.... Oh.

Anyways, here I am, back, giving you an update of what's happened in my world today. Which luckily involved some art shenanigans.... 

Here is my little studio, oh how I've missed you....

Today's play involved an old magazine and a knife....

And also meeting a taxidermy stag at my local tattoo parlour.....

Say hello to my new tattoo....

and a sketch on the endless craving of desire....

and lastly please remember to hang your raincloud out on the line to dry....

I'm pretty sure that's it for now, over and out....
