I have been making collage for fun for a very long time. It started out as something to fit in around a professional life in the built environment (see more at my LinkedIn page) Now its about making greeting cards that explore the possibilities of collage – the colour, the patterns, the unexpected.
I have created a gallery of cards that express my love of juxtaposition and shapes and colour. My first range is all about teapots and jugs, abstract shapes and vases of flowers, with a few happy birthday cards as well. All the cards are handmade and scanned to create a unique and colourful range. All are blank inside.
I started out going to art school at Central School of Art (before Central St Martins was formed) for a foundation year and then to Winchester to study Sculpture. After a short time I changed tack and studied urban and regional planning. Then on to lots of other things, all the time making collage cards.
