This piece of illustration is illustrating the feeling of the past and memories fading but always being there. I have really enjoyed doing rubbings of my dad's badges and medals. This one was a fabric name badge I love the fact you can see the texture in the fabric with in the rubbing I think this is lovely.

This illustration was for a project on Breakfast at Tiffany's. It's from the scene when Holly Golightly played by Audrey Hepburn tries to skip bail and she gets out the limo with the cat and leaves him in the streets on his own, while she gets back into the limo.

part musical instrument and part daisy"

I recently took a trip to London to see the Thriller musical. It was amazing and advise I you
to go to see it if you get the chance. While I was there I took a walk along the River Thames, we visited all the main sight seeing hot spots but Big Ben is one that reminds me of my childhood. When I lived in America and we used to come to England Big Ben is all we wanted to see.
I recently took a trip to Levington Marina it was so nice.
So many boats to look at small ones, big ones, new and old. while I was there I took loads of pictures and from those pictures I have done these pictures.
This is an acrylic print of the boat masts
This is an acrylic painting of some boats that were tied up for the night.
This little boat was all tied up on its own!!! Sad times

This is another postcard I have made the words "when yellow wants to become blue, it becomes green" are from Russian Proverb. The quote is about envy so my idea for my mixed media piece came from the saying the grass is always greener on the other side. I have created two areas of grass then the blue symbols the fence and the yellow sky in my picture.
This is an acrylic painting I have done for a project in which I have to create an A6
postcard for the theme Words From The Wise. I have to produce 5 A6 postcards
illustrating phrases from the book Words From The Wise by Rosemarie Jarski.
The phrase I am illustrating is " Cities, like cats, reveal themselves at night" by Rurpet Brooke. I decided on red to be the main colour as it is over powering, bright and fun. I have made some of the buildings bend to illustrate they are dancing in the night and having fun, I kept some of them straight so that they still resembled buildings.

This is a charcoal drawing of my Dog Riley. He was named Riley
because of the saying "life of Riley" it means that you will have a good life
and the best of everything. This is no lie when it comes to my dog. Some times I
think he gets treated better then me!!!!!

I took a trip to a village near my home town Bury St Edmunds called Lavenham. It is a pretty little village full of cute houses which are all different shapes and sizes. Lavenham is England's finest medieval village. It has over 300 listed buildings. It has a few local art galleries with work by artist Paul Evans in most of them. Paul Evans creates wonderful landscape pieces.
While I was at Lavenham I did these two pen drawings.
The top one is of a house in the village and the bottom
is of the village center.

My dog Riley enjoyed his day at Ipswich Docks as well!!
Create Me A Monster
This is a monster I made for a project titled Create me a monster. I began looking at cancer cells as research for my monster as I wanted to create a monster that wasn't your typical monster. I really like the out come of this monster as I like the contrast of the blue against the yellow
