Update September 2011

Hi you guys !

Sorry not to have updated my site much lately but I've been really busy making stock for my outlets and craft fairs. 'In House Space' in Brightons North Laines now has a regular stock of my work. You can see a good selection in the main window. I am also expanding my range in Calladoodles on Carshaton High Street in Surrey next week. I'll be including some of my lovely cosy hand knitted collars with fabulous and exclusive hand made buttons !! I've also started loading new stock onto my Etsy shop and this will continue over the coming weeks. Check out my range of short and long sleeved t-shirts and hoodies on my Redbubble site too !

Have a great weekend !! AX

The very talented Karen Turner of HodgePodgeArts ( ref=pr_shop_more ) has created more wonderful buttons, brooches and tiles using some of my illustrations. I love the way she has mixed my art work with her individual use of texture, text and gilt to make them really individual and special.

Sorry not to be in touch for a while but I've been a busy boy working on new projects and  commissions. My series ' All About Brighton' is progressing well and could soon be on ceramic buttons and tea light holders ! I have also signed a licensing deal for my design ' Partridge In A Pear Tree' to be used as a tapestry design. Currently I'm working on designs to print on glass and a sculpture commission so I had better get on and do some work !!
Have a great weekend X
