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

The size of an old fashioned postcard, my Postcard Collages are created from combining two halves of two contrasting old postcards. Layers of old and new elements, painted, drawn on, and stitched, with the occassional old found black pin.

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 more of what is currently available

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

Collage Commissions

Commissions can be created using your own treasured family photos, letters etc, archiving them in to a collage you can view and appreciate 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 made elements, or people who have had more than enough, and to various sizes.

You can see one recent commission and its progress here, or get in touch for more details, prices range from £50 upwards

King Street Townhouse

A collection of collages can now be found hanging in the bespoke bedrooms of the beautiful boutique hotel in the centre of Manchester, the King Street Townhouse.

They have been selected for displayin most of the bedrooms to hang along with work by other local artists and are all original works of art.

I was lucky enough to be given a tour of this beautiful hotel and you can see inside some of the rooms here

HAND

A group of 49 artists, mostly residents from Manchester Craft + Design Centre, were invited to create one or more panels which, when brought together created a large mural to represent an iconic section of MCDC ironwork gates.

The individual panels represent the diverse styles and disciplines of the makers within the building and from around Manchester.

The two sections I created for this unique evopportunity reflect my collage work using ephemera with graph papers. You can follow my process here.
