Variety - the spice of life!

The past couple of months I've been working on lots of different things... of course! I have a few bespoke invitations on the go at the moment which I'll be able to show you sometime in the future. I also designed this invitation for an 80th birthday party at a fish and chip restaurant, which was fun!

It's designed in a similar style (but contrasting nutritional value) to this piece of work I created: "5 a day" - (an unsuccessful but enjoyable pitch!)

Also I've been very busy with Leeds Owl Trail, delivering art and heritage workshops in schools, in Leeds City Art Gallery (where there's a fantastic FREE Henry Moore exhibition that really is a must see) and Leeds City Library (you should go and see the Leeds Tapestry there!). I find the Leeds Owl Trail days with the primary school children really is a fab way to spend a day!

I love this grey owl's eyes (by a year 3 student) a tunnel going all the way through. You can see how the gallery collection really does inspire the young artists!

I've also completed version 5 of the Leeds Owl Trail map, adding the Rose Bowl and other changes to Leeds City Centre, including the eagerly anticipated Trinity Leeds development.

I'm taking part in a Creative Partnerships project and spent my first day with GCSE students, seen here in their beautiful garden space. 

It made me yearn for my sketchbook days! Back to work now, I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to!
