Members of the public colouring my design for the yellow fish environmental community project about river pollution

November 7th 2016

For this project, I was asked by a friend to produce a large design which the general public in Chelmsford could participate in by colouring it. As the project was under the title of 'yellow fish' I got my inspiration from 'the yellow brick road' in the Wizard of Oz. The slogan of the environmental project was 'only rain down the drain' and so I designed one spiral going down the drain, with the slogan getting smaller and designed another spiral swirling up, representing the rivers in Chelmsford-containing leaves, flowers, canoeists, and eventually wildlife. The public were then invited to colour the 4 large canvasses in and add their handprints.

I had been involved in producing colouring books for adults for a couple of years with a company called "Global Doodle Gems", and was offered the chance to create my own colouring book. I wanted something a little bit more diverse than the usual flowers and mandala books, so set about producing the striking images of people I knew from the punk era. The people were certainly 'colourful' and so I decided they were the perfect subject. Read more for the link to the book or click on the pictures to go to the newspaper article.

Rain Art

September 30th 2017

A huge project for me and one which has kick-started my professional career. In 2016, the Ideas Festival in Chelmsford ran workshops to get people involved in a 'rain art' project. I was fascinated by this idea and so took part and was commissioned this year to make designs for the project. The designs had to be made into a template, which was then placed on the ground. A water-resistant (eco-friendly) spray was then applied. The designs are invisible until it rains, when they show up to cheer people up! I was so excited by this project that I intend to use it further.

mural for special needs college

November 7th

This project was one that I hold very dear. I was asked by the head of the college (a special place for me and my family) to design an artwork to be placed at the front of their stage. I asked the students which words they would use to describe the place. They came up with 'support' and 'friendship' so these were the basis of my design. I wanted to show these factors, but also the fact that the college helps people up and is a embraces diversity. The piece is now in situ, and an assembly was held to reveal it to the students. The Essex Chronicle also produced an article about the work.
