Church Road Mural

This year’s biggest project has been working on the Church Road Mural. 
Zoe Power and I were commissioned by Bristol City Council to design and paint a community mural on the wall of St George Liberal Club.

It’s bold and colourful and celebrates the history and diversity of the Redfield neighbourhood.

I led print based workshops with school children, young people and vulnerable adults where they helped design motifs, which were then incorporated into the mural design.

The chosen design is a patchwork of individual segments representing different elements of the local community. The mural includes swans and herons to represent St George Park and trams to represent the history of Church Road, as well as musical images to reflect local festival Redfest.

We’re chuffed with the great response’s we’ve had so far.

So get in touch if you want to show your wall some LOVE and treat it to a colourful bespoke design. (Email: or call 07905895116).

The Folk House…a little bit of magic tucked away down a little alleyway...

...up Park Street in Bristol. In case you haven't heard of Bristol Folk House, it's definitely worth a visit. It's a beautiful place in central Bristol, an adult education centre, it provides a variety of part-time day and evening classes and courses including: Arts & Crafts, Pottery, Writing, Languages, Music, Dance, Drama, Fitness, Personal Development and more.
The Folk House is a self-funding charity that aims to help the local community take part in ‘learning for pleasure’ courses in a friendly, relaxed environment.

They hold regular art exhibitions in the lush cafĂ© bar, which also serves delicious organic, locally sourced food….Oh YEA…The month of July will see the cafe walls covered in my prints. Original monoprints will be displayed, many of them I produced in India and are of places in India. 

And here are a few snaps from the most recent course I delivered called Monoprinting with Stencils. Thanks to the lovely participants for letting me take photos of their work.

If you like what you see you can book a place by going onto the Folk House website and clicking on Printmaking. Then it's 'Monoprinting with Stencils'. I run a course and a day workshop on a Saturday. Complete beginners warmly welcomed.

The Art Troupe

Have you heard about it yet? Well if not you should certainly check out the swish new website and read about the creative types bumbling around Bristol and their creatives offerings.

I recently ran a printmaking workshop with The Art Troupe in Hamilton House, Bristol.
You can book me or any of the other artists listed on the website for pretty much any group situation,  (e.g. corporate event, birthday, children's party, team building, hen party). It's an incredibly enriching activity and a really lovely way to de-stress and work alongside your mates/colleagues doing something a bit different.
Heres a few snaps of the fun evening.

You can also enquire about attending a workshop as an individual. We will try to create a date that a group of about 8 or so strangers can also make!
