Aspin Family Magazine Collage Commission

Aspin Family Collage

A2 magazine collage commission depicting the recipient with his three sons and the family dog. A favourite family walk along the Norfolk coast.

The light in this was really lovely and I wanted to make sure I captured it.

I loved the little dog and was really pleased with how he turned out, lots of tiny pieces but it was worth the effort.

The sun catches the hair beautifully, again lots of tiny pieces were needed to recreate it.

Happy Customers!

Lovely feedback on this -
Just unwrapped! My husband is totally blown away by the collage you did of him and our 3 boys on a walk in one of our favourite places on the north Norfolk coast. It's for a 'significant' birthday - we are both totally in awe of the exquisite detail and the way you've captured a moment so perfectly in a beautiful piece of art to enjoy forever. You are so clever!

St Michael's Mount A3 Magazine Collage

St Michael's Mount was a really lovely commission to receive. 

There was so much detail to capture, it really put my collaging skills to the test! Achieving the effect of brickwork and the windows were the main challenge.

I highlighted interesting details such at the white gates, doors and windows.

Father Time Magazine Collage

This is my entry for the EcoCreate Time & Tide exhibition to be held at Banks Mill Studios January 2017. Learn More

Father Time Magazine Collage

'Time rules the world', magazine collage depicting Father Time watching the tide rise and the sunset on parliament. The stars become dandelion clocks as they fall, they read 'Tick Tock'. Made entirely of ripped and cut magazines, on recycled board using non-toxic adhesives.

This piece was collaged on the back board of a preloved frame, reinserted once complete. I have a matching frame which I hope to use for a related piece. I hope this will be the first of many in my 'Personification' series.

The collage had such a positive reaction on line that it is now available as an A4 print and A6 art card.
