Watercolour and Fineliner

This is a small tester piece done with watercolour and then worked over with fineliner.

Abstract botanical work.

Windsor & Newton gouache.

This is a small piece done in my sketchbook to explore composition, colour and shape. I love old books about flowers and contemporary illustration, this is a mash up of both styles.

I’ve used Windsor & Newton gouache and fine liner pens.

Library Box

Library box for Pollination Street Todmorden, West Yorkshire UK

This was commissioned by Mary Clear for Incredible Edible in Todmorden. We have these around town where people can take a book and leave a book.

Mixed media collage

I love green!

I used paper from my huge collage stash and then added drawn elements using jelly roll pens. The size is 16 x 16 inches.

Green and Red collage

Collage, gouache & Posca

I used hand printed and found collage paper, Windsor & Newton Gouache and Posca pens. I don’t normally use a lot of red preferring colours I see whilst out walking but this piece seemed to have its own voice.
