When I'm 64...

I made a mobile using lots of little golden wheelchairs for my Dad's 64th birthday - in the hope he won't won't be needing one anytime soon.. but to mark becoming a golden oldie!

Long exposure of reflections of the pattern made on the wall.

Poor old Shipley Bookshop is now closed. So I thought it would be a little farewell to wipe a pattern out of the now empty window..

Johnny's DIY, Deptford

Window for Johnny's DIY shop on Deptford High Street. Summer 2007

This is a drawing technique I use to wipe away a whitewashed window surface to reveal a pattern to peer through. I used the style to create a window display for Johnny’s DIY Shop for the summer ‘Made in Deptford’ festival in 2007. The organisers invited local artists and designers to choose a shop on the high street to decorate for the occasion - I liked the idea of covering a DIY shop in white flowers and foliage.
