I'm not really sure where these came from... I have always been fascinated by capturing facial expression, and the faces people pull whilst enjoying their meals are very interesting and not all together flattering. So I decided to single out just the face and the hands that are feeding the face, to focus purely on the act of eating. I don't know... a little exploration to keep my hands in practice. Do they make you hungry?!

Exciting news. The lovely people of Ballad Of magazine chose my work to be included in their magazine- and its out now! I first came across the mag in the Tate book-shop and absolutely loved it. It was so beautifully printed and featured a huge selection of great illustrators, artists and photographers, that I thought to myself 'I want my work in here' And now it is! I am actually pretty proud of myself for the work I produced and for achieving a goal I set myself. It might be a small, non-profit goal, but if I'm being honest I've really struggled since becoming a graduate, with working a full time job and desperately scrabbling out of my over-draft, I've felt I have little time, energy or motivation to produce work. So to see my work in print will definitely put a smile on my face. :)
I haven't blogged in a while, but heres my most recent creative exploits(?!). These paintings were a failed attempt to secure a commission. Apparently the clients were delighted with them..but found them to be too 'directional and arty' for the brand. However, I quite like them, so here they are for everyone to see.
I'm thinking about printing them on a few sets of christmas cards. Any takers?
