Collages are created using original old papers, particularly old postcards dating around 100 years old. They are combined with new handmade paper elements, papers that have been imprinted during my jewellery making process, stitching, painting, drawn patterns and sometimes a few old pins. They are always one-off items . . .  

Postcard Collages

My most recent collages are created from combining two halves of different postcards, painted, stitched and layered. They are available from my Work / Shop, and a selection can be viewed here. Please get in touch if you would are unable to visit and would like to see what is currently available

Postcard Collages (approx. h. 9cm x w. 13cm plus mount) are £18 each (+ postage)  

Collage Commissions

Commissions are created using treasured family photos, letters etc, archiving them in to a collage so you can view and appreciate them on your wall everyday. I have created collages for those who have only a few papers and wanted me to combine them with my own, or people who have had more than plenty. You can see how they are made here, or feel free to get in touch for more details, prices range from £50 upwards

King Street Townhouse

A collection of collages can be found hanging in the bespoke bedrooms of the beautiful boutique hotel in the centre of Manchester, the King Street Townhouse. They have been chosen for most of the bedrooms to hang along with work by other local artists and are all original works of art. I was given a tour of the hotel and you can see inside some of the rooms here

HAND

A group of artists, most from Manchester Craft + Design Centre, have individually created 49 customised pieces of work which were collated to form a large mural representing an iconic section of MCDC ironwork gates. The two sections I created for this unique event reflect my collage work using ephemera with graph papers. You can follow the process here
