About this Poster

My print is a kaleidoscope of bikes through the ages, it was first inspired by the collection of bicycles on display at Manchester's National Cycling Centre. It's been a joy to research into different bikes and learn a bit more about how bicycles have evolved over time and made me realize how tricky they are to draw (especially all the circles!).

About

I am obsessional about colour and pattern; as a result my work is an exploration of meticulous detail and an explosion of bright colour. My illustrations portray my blatant love for animals, nature and the environment, I enjoy creating work that allows me to escape into the world of my imagination, a place that makes me smile and in turn I hope makes others smile also. My work is a mixture of handcrafted prints and products produced by myself using digital, lino and screen printed methods.

Back Story

One
Lots Of Handwork

Each element of my print has been created by hand, each stencil for all four layers of the print was hand painted and hand drawn using my trusty lightbox to ensure each layer lined up perfectly with the next. The only computer aided element of the process was half-toning elements of the layers to give my print a vintage print aesthetic as well as maintaining the hand painted execution of the original artwork.

Escape And Create

I ADORE drawing, painting and creating artwork and when I realised as a teenager that it was something I could make into a job it was like a lightbulb moment, and since then I have been determined to make my passion into my career. It feels like a privilege to be able to escape into my imagination and create for a living!

How To Feel Free

I still remember the first time I rode a bike without stabilisers, and the first time I rode my bike down a big hill and was brave enough to take my hands of the handlebars. The thing I remember most about both occasions is how free I felt. I think that's the best thing about cycling it gives you a sense of freedom and tranquillity!
