Paper Ephemera, Pen and Ink Drawings and Portraits

Brighton, England

Announcement    Welcome to my shop! Here you'll find Vintage and Found Paper Ephemera collections, Pen and Ink Drawings of my own invention as well as Portraits for your commission. I'm also experimenting with art dolls and textiles.

I obsessively draw, and I can't shake the fascination for the crisp black line of an ink pen or brush against a blank white sheet. It's tasty and I like it. I love the way the whole world can be ignored whilst I concentrate on balancing lines, and that world can be distilled within the drawing. I also obsessively hoard paper and interesting ephemera, and curate them into collections with a theme. Each collection is completely unique and cannot be made again. There are traces of memory, whispers of experience, and ghosts from the future. It's an exercise in nostalgia, in divination and call and response to my inspirations.

If you're interested in prints of my artworks, do get in touch. They can be made on demand, with a little time.

I have only set up UK shipping, but if you're from further afield, get in touch and I can work out prices for you. :)

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon.
