Since graduating from university in 2007, I have made a fair number of things. Whilst working with creative coach Mark McGuinness, I decided it would be useful to put together a collection of all my favourite headdresses, puppets and masks I have created.
I used to think I wasn’t very good at drawing, but over the last year I have grown in confidence and I am now pretty proud of my collages and sketches.
All the drawn images below have been created by me, and were all made whilst at Uni. For new work see this blog post, and I will be posting up more work after my open studios next week. All the 3D objects were made in the last 7 years, and if you scroll down, I have credited the designer and production.
