I’ve recently started a new series of works that are drawn by hand stitching black thread into white paper. They are an absolute nightmare to do but I like the way the line is never properly curved, which is a similar way to the way a lot of my tape lines end up.
This one is going in a group show at Beers Contemporary in November.
Above is my third lightbox; entitled Albertine, that will be exhibited at The Mall Galleries in Trafalgar Square in November. I am one of Juror Elmo Hood’s nominated artists in the ING Discerning Eye Art Prize.

I’m constantly reading, and when I’m not I’m doodling in book covers. Here is a sketch on the inside cover of Dubliners by James Joyce. Possibly going to turn this into a big linoprint or tape drawing.
Here is a little sneak peek of a new little tape drawing. Black electrical tape on glass.
Here is a coaster I doodled on for Lights Of Soho’s project No Artists No Art.
