I’ve been a bit quiet recently because I’ve been trying to finish my alphabet piece for the next East End Arts Club exhibition ‘Said why eggs?!‘. I’ve also become a bit obsessed with paper cut outs, a technique I already use to varying degrees, usually using the ‘cut out’ elements in my abstract paintings. This time I thought it would be nice to look at what was left and try and make a whole piece in the traditional way. Most of the paper cut out art I have seen features whimsical, folk style imagery so I think it might be nice to do a few pieces using the retro patterns I normally use:

This is my latest abstract:

I wanted to do a pair for a previous image and I think they work well together:

I’ve been saying this for ages but I am intending to set up an Etsy shop selling my prints. I’m also thinking of having the following design printed on some cotton shoppers. What do you think?

What with the current trend for alphabets I thought I would share a piece of work I did based on this theme. While I can’t proclaim to be on trend (I did this months ago…!) the East End Arts Club are once again bang up to date. The next show, opening next month is based on the 26 letters of the alphabet and once again there will be a selection of limited editions and originals. I will be creating something new and keeping my fingers crossed it will be selected so watch this space for that and further details of the exhibition.

This next piece is something I did  more recently, it was actually the starting point for my ‘Love & Sex’ show exhibit. It was a digital version based on the above but I thought it looked too busy and couldn’t get the colours right (I’m quite new to this digital malarky…) I decided the most successful part of it was the playing card element in some of the letters…so thats how the playing card imagery (posted earlier) came about!

Painting and paper collage on linen…

I did this collage a while ago and out of all of the pieces I have done it seems to be the most popular. People keep commenting on the colours which I suppose are quite nice but it’s not my favourite composition. Anyway I have just bought some more linen and hope to do a better one soon so watch this space…

But I think I’ve got playing cards out of my system now…

So when I was invited to submit some work to the new East End Arts Club exhibition ‘F**k Art Let’s Love’ I did these:
