WORK SHOWING AT NELSON'S ANTIQUES, HIGH STREET, HASTINGS.
I currently have work displayed in an antique shop. The vintage atmosphere really suits the illustrations and my idea of discovering something old and giving it a new meaning and existance. The work focuses on the repeat, again using the theory that this makes an image seem more appealing. I want the work to engage the local viewer but also the outsider through specific composition and fun, nostalgic imagery. So go see it!

These photographs show an album of work that I have recently created. My work deals with the handmade, found photography and vintage printed matter through the use of collage and illustration. I wish to take advantage of the 'familiar' and the act of remembering as a way of engaging the viewer. Although this nostalgia is paramount, so too is proving the subject matter actually existed and giving the imagery a new life through my work.
