Girls Who Draw: Magic Show

In April I am taking part in the new Girls Who Draw exhibition, the theme of which is 'magic'. Artists involved are: Karoline Rerrie, Kate Hindley, Ruth Green, Beth Morrison, Sarah Ray, Jane Anderson, Mary Kilvert, Sarah Lippett, Daisy Whitehouse, Mina Braun and me.

Above are some images of my piece for the show in the construction stage. Its a big wall hanging made up of many small screen prints all hand stitched together. An ode to Harry Houdini.

The poster for the show was drawn by the lovely Kate Hindley.

If you'd like a press release for the event please email me at: memoillustration@gmail.com

prints in progress

The last few weeks I've been busy working on new prints for two upcoming exhibitions. The images above show prints in progress for a small solo exhibition I'm having at the Bowery in Leeds in April, this coincides with a mural I'll be drawing on the Bowery's classroom entrance wall. More images to follow shortly for a group show I'm taking part in in Sollihul, Birmingham with the Girls Who Draw, also in April.

March is proving to be a busy month..

Collections zine issue 1

Collections zine issue 1 is a new zine that I just finished screen printing. Its the first in a new series about my various collections of objects. Issue 1 focuses on my collection of paper drinks coasters from the 1950s-1970s. I collect so many things I thought it was about time I started documenting them!

Issue 1 is available here

This coming weekend I'll be selling my wares at the Leeds International Artists Bookfair held at the Leeds University on both Friday 11th and Saturday 12th March. More information available here
