The Breaker’s Yard Signage (Sutton House) 2014

web_IMG_9791

In the summer of 2014 I painted the signage for a new conceptual garden at The National Trust’s Sutton House. The site is a Tudor House in Hackney, where the garden was used as an industrial site for many years. The project is a collaboration between The National Trust, The House of Fairy Tales and artist and gardener Dan Lobb. I heartily recommend a visit!

Mathematics Mastery: Chalkboard Installations (Nov. 2014)

I was commissioned to decorate two rooms in an immersive theatre fund raiser and educational project for All Saints ARK Academy in South London. The project focused on Maths Mastery; a programme making leaps and bounds in the teaching of maths in schools  using visual language as it’s prime communication tool. It was my job to cover the walls with mathematical equations and diagrams. I learnt more about maths in the week I was there than I ever did in five years of secondary school!

The Big Draw 2014: Pavement Art at Museum Of Childhood

In October 2014, I worked on The Big Draw’s anniversary celebration of classic comic characters ‘Pip Squeak and Wilfred’. I chose pavement art as a theme, as there are several references to this way of working in the comic strip, as well as other elements of British street life. Hundreds of participants grabbed some chalk and made their mark on the paving outside the museum. The sun shined all day and the street came to life with pictures,created by adults and children alike! More details here:
