The new postcard sets are now ready, signed, and I’m sending them out this morning to those who have pre-ordered. Each set is sealed in a cello envelope and then posted in a manilla envelope, with a hand drawn sketch on the reverse and a wax seal. The postcards are individually signed and editioned in a limited set of 250. If you would like a set they are available to order here and I usually send them out same or next day.
There are also just a few editions left of the print ‘Another Place’ (below) you can pick up one of the remaining prints here.

Went round to hang the work today for the violence of flowers preview this weekend. I have decided on 7 new floral pieces of work which after the preview will be transported to the Castle in Walthamstow to be shown as part of the E17 Art Trail. I have ommitted the portrait pieces from this show as I think they seem disjointed from the series of work ..
Also this week three new pieces of work have been requested from Opus Gallery based in Newcastle. The pieces are Find Yourself, Envy and Revive. 2 of these pieces have not been shown before and this is also the first metre square drawing of mine that has been exhibited, if you would like to see more detailed images of the work there is a handy preview over at the Opus website – you can view it here
Also newly installed in the Art Republic gallery is the lightbox installation – Flower of Life – based upon the geometric pattern, this double sided drawing can now be seen pulsing in the basement of the soho store, the piece is accompanied by the drawing Quill – the link being that both pieces reference the work and life of Da Vinci.
Lots of exciting things happening around the studios and also in other parts of Leytonstone – plans aren’t 100% secured yet but hopefully we will be able to spill the beans on a new project soon…. watch this space
Good day in the studio yesterday – after collecting work from the Contemporary Romantics show I got back in the studio just before the heavens opened and finished off a new piece of work.. was a strange drawing experience and one of the more ‘automatic’ drawings I have carried out recently. Thought I would post it to the blog as I haven’t decided whether it fits with the series ‘Violence of Flowers’ but maybe it works because it is so different to the others. Most importantly it was a really euphoric experience making the work and I’m keen to share it so here it is!
Small size giclee prints are now available of 2 new pieces, ‘The Discovery’ and ‘The Vine’.
The Vine, painted in a combination of Ink, Brandy Vodka and Whisky will appear at London Miles’ March exhibition of vices – you can find out more here
The prints, produced as signed giclee editions onto Hahnemuhle archival watercolour paper in a limited edition of 25 each are signed by the artist and are available for £75.00 each here
