diorama

I have always loved miniature things and building scenes with them. Creating everyday scenes from life in miniature is challenging and very time consuming but hugely satisfying! Whether it is something humorous or thought provoking, I love the idea of building that scene to fit into a box!

The boxes are made from MDF with 2mm clear cast acrylic inserts that slide in from the top, enabling them to be posted easily and safely. The box is complete with wall hangers on the reverse or simply stand on a flat surface.

All boxes are unique one off original artworks, signed and dated and include postage and packing within the UK, for international delivery please enquire.

One of my more thought provoking scenes, looking at various issues around the world, perhaps in a more surreal or fairytale style.

The model figures are hand painted, the wooden spiral staircase hand built and the forest scene is a photograph printed on acetate with additional hand drawn characters.

I always enjoy watching life happen on the streets and the smaller details going on around the main scene when others get involved! I do this in my photography too but with these I can make the scene how I want it.

The background is designed and hand painted with acrylics, as are the paint pots, spills and model figures.

Wandering words

£325

FREE UK delivery

I always say that I don't do words, I do pictures! So I decided I would try combining them based on my curious way of thinking! I often change sentences/sayings around to see if I can transform them into a whole new 'picture'. That's what I have done here and also teasing the reader into reading in different directions, just like my way of thinking!

The words and phrases are printed and hand cut and attached to the background. The boxes holding the words are hand made and the model figures hand painted.

artwork size   35 x 25.5 x 8.5 cm

Articulate

£325

SOLD

FREE UK delivery

Once again I have gone for the graffiti look as I thought it was very appropriate for the sentiments in this artwork. I once said that when I start talking about art, I can't stop! So I kind of imagined it like this, pouring out of my mouth and involving everyone around it me!

The background is hand painted with acrylics as are the model figures.

Fragile life

£325

FREE UK delivery

An abstract view of life! The fragility of an egg, often like life, outgrowing the nest but afraid to leave. Surrounded by restraints and people, some concerned and caring, willing to climb a mountain for you and some only interested in their own pursuits.

The egg, nest and ropes are hand built and painted and the model figures and background individually painted.

artwork size   33 x 23 x 12cm

Personal space

£125

SOLD

How many of us live in a big city and long for a chill out space of our own? This is about finding your own little peaceful haven! Even though I live in London I do manage to find a quiet spot and switch off!

The island and sea are hand built with paper maché and gel and the model figures individually painted. The back ground is part photograph and part drawing of a city skyline.

Finding the right words

Who hasn't at some point been stuck for the right words! Sometimes it can be really important to say the right thing and we search and search in the hope that we will find them somewhere!

Letting go

£125

SOLD

FREE UK delivery

We all go through emotional periods in our lives and I see these as the colour red. Sometimes we just have to let go, like a balloon, cut free to float away and live somewhere else, moving out of our lives.

The hill was hand made with paper maché and covered in snow and the balloons were also hand made, painted and covered in glitter.
