Tiny streams

I've started a blog for the residency I'm doing in Budapest in August. It's just the beginning, so there's very little on there at the moment, but hopefully it'll be overflowing by the end of the summer! That pun was fully intentional.

If you'd like to contribute to the project by answering a few questions about the River Thames (or the Danube, if it has some significance for you), please email me at I'd love to hear from you!

Buda! Pest!

In August I'll be heading over to the magnificent Art Quarter Budapest - yes that's in actual Budapest - to do a two-week artist residency!

I'm going to be working on a narrative project, gathering stories related to the Danube and the Thames, to create an animation / sound piece; working title 'The River Is Smiling'. It's only a short residency (though hopefully it will lead to more), so phase one of the adventure - an exploration of all things Thames-related - starts now. Watch this space for more updates.

Do you have any stories, memories, anecdotes or even just feelings about the Thames you'd be happy to share with me? If so, I'd love to hear from you so please get in touch via my website, now fully updated -

In other news, I've now got cards for sale at the recently refurbished Oriel Wrexham in North Wales. Two of my card designs are currently featured on their Facebook page, hurrah! My Etsy shop is also up and running again so if you want to get involved in some old-fashioned letter writing, do go ahead and place your order.

Summer is late, and so am I!

It's been a long time coming, but I've finally updated my website. Hooray!

Find it at

The old site, created for me by the wonderful Creative Hero, is still online at (spot the difference) until further notice, or I can bear to part with it.

In other news, the latest issue of Cracked Eye magazine is out now, featuring illustrations I made for "Voices of the Past" by Hannah Spencer. Here's a teaser - download the app for the whole story!

In Winter, I plot and plan. In Spring, I move.

So says Henry Rollins. I'm stating that as my reason for not writing on here since November. February always feels short but overly intense - I like the sound of its name, but the picture I have of the word in my mind is cold and grey and blue, with sleet and snow drifting around the edges of every letter.

Luckily this Winter has been productive. I've been illustrating for the lovely Cracked Eye magazine, a short story app and offshoot of The Other Publishing company. Here are some of the most recent pics, for 'On The Outside' by Lynn Peters. You'll have to download it to find out what it's about!

I've also written and illustrated a short story for Studio 73 gallery in Brixton, for their shiny new website - which isn't live yet, but watch this space for more updates.
