Pact Advent Calendar 2018

It’s that time of year again! I’ve been working with Pact Coffee once more to design their 2018 coffee advent calendar. 25 amazing coffees, ethically sourced through direct trade with the farmers and each one has an information card, so you can learn the story behind the brew.

Pact Coffee are also donating 50p from every Christmas product sold to Shelter.

We’ve recently been featured in BBC Good Food Magazine’s best advent calendars for foodies and the good news is the advent calendar is available now here for pre-order.

Photographs can’t do this exhibition justice! Spotted my little magpies perched on the top ledge before spending a joyful time exploring the other artwork. Bravo to the organisers, who have worked so hard to pull this off, and good luck to them for tonight’s event.

More information about the Secret Charter fundraising event, and why it’s so important, here.

Secret Charter 2018

I’m so delighted to have created a postcard – sized piece of art for the Secret Charter fundraiser…which sold out in 28 minutes this evening! I feel honoured and humbled to be part of an incredible list of contributors which includes Ralph Steadman, Antony Gormley, Gillian Wearing, Tracey Emin and Julian Opie to name but a few. Excited doesn’t really cover it…

The Secret Charter event will provide desperately needed funds for the arts at The Charter School North Dulwich. The exhibition will be at The Dulwich Picture Gallery on Monday 15th October, and that evening the postcards will be revealed to their new owners. I’m not allowed to show you the actual postcard yet, so here’s another in the meantime!

Illustration Workshop Booking Now Open!

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve planned out a range of creative sessions for children and adults throughout Autumn / Winter 2018, including some workshops for adult and child pairs, which should be lots of fun.

All of the workshops are held at my house in SE19, in an informal, relaxed kitchen studio setting. All materials are included in the session price.

The number of places for each session is limited, so early booking is highly recommended, as sessions can become fully booked very quickly. Details of each session can be found below, and testimonials / examples of previous students’ work can be found here.

To book places, please contact me. I hope to see you soon!
