the red dream.

My work focuses primarily on human nature. I am interested in our place in the universe, sex, death, birth, our sensual relationship with the natural world we inhabit, all things disgusting and exciting, music, masquerade, chaos, dreams and nightmares. My work is influenced by many different cultures and I seek to produce highly decorative work whilst still remaining meaningful.

we’re having a live art sign painting fun day at work where we will be decorating the massive blank shop front, this is a little idea for how it may look.. i may even get involved in the painting of it, maybe!

really interesting and satisfying to see how much an idea changes when you’re working with constant client feedback about changes etc. this logo’s been lots of fun to do! still not quite there yet though..
