Some completed final images for my 3rd year Degree project. Over the last 15 weeks, I have found the whale such a fascinating creature. My final piece has taken the form of a large framed wall piece, with one whale representing 300 in real life, reflecting the actual numbers of whale species left. There are 1,003 whales on the final 1.5 metre by 2.5 metre work!

A series of images from my ongoing project about the whale. Playing with scale is key here, so I am playing around with the idea of complete opposite sizes. The top images are 10cm x 6cm.

An image from my promotional book 'The Smelly Mackerel.' It's a investigative book on the mackerel, only 8 pages long. Short and sweet. (or smelly...)

This is the beginning of my work for my Final Major Project. It will be based on animal anatomy. This is just some early work, researching into styles.
The lioness is attracted to males with darker manes apparently, and their shoulder muscle in unattached to the shoulder, allowing huge leg movement. Just some facts!

A commission I did for a couple through Flora Lou, the shop in Chobham where I sell my work. This was my first attempt at a homemade canvas, which was a success. It was a really enjoyable piece to work on.

When it comes to letters, I love making them look pretty. This is one I sent to a friend a while back.

These were originally going to be sold, but I actually like them too much. This is happening increasingly, and not particularly good for business!!

An owl. He looks a bit grumpy though. This one looks more like a defined gentlemen...

Some more work for my current project on the Spanish Riding School. It is taking the form of a narrative, and therefore a book at the moment. It tells of the evacuation of the prized stallions in 1945 to safety, and the events that happened for the horses around the end of the war. It's great to be able to tweak Uni projects to fit my favourite subjects!
