I spent part of this weekend sorting through my stuff in the loft, and discovered loads of my old artwork, both from school and from my foundation course. Obviously it's not the best work I've ever done, but I found it interesting to look through and see how my style has developed and changed since then, so I thought I'd share a few of my favourite pieces.
All of the above were taken from a still life project I completed whilst I was at school. Looking back, I can see that my work had an illustrative edge to it even then, although I was doing a fine art course. I think it's interesting to see how my work has developed - I was much more into painting back then, although this was the time that I started experimenting with collage.

I have recently been working on my matchbox artwork for Enter the Clutter's Matchbox Art Show. The exhibition will include the work of 50 artists, all of whom will have transformed a matchbox into a miniature masterpiece! Very exciting!
Here are a selection of photos of my contribution to the show;
The matchboxes will be exhibited in Brighton at the Polish and Pin Open House on the weekends of 26th-27th November and 3rd-4th December. If you're interested, you can find out more information here. The matchboxes will all be for sale, and the ones I've seen so far look incredible, so it's definitely worth checking out if you're in the area!
