SAVE YOURSELVES: Exhibition

SAVE YOURSELVES They say home is where the heart is, but in our case, home is where the art is.

Validation: The truth about my “IG Rage”

My website has become a necessary, time consuming & expensive burden that no one ever bothers to check out, but I am damned if I don’t and damned if I do. It seems like it was the ‘must have’ thing for any business and artist 10-15 years ago. Quite hard to build at the start […]

Left with the Unicorns

In my mind, I had been planning to start a bird based screen printing project for some time now. Many hours of researching through books, The V & A, The British Musuem and the Museum of Natural History  and a million photographs I was driving my self into a right tizz. So many choices and […]

Making Of: Credit Crunch Wallpaper
