Hannah Arendt

Bonjour et bonne année 2015!
J'ai passé une bonne partie de 2014 à travailler sur un projet de bande dessinée sur la théoricienne politique allemande Hannah Arendt, chez la maison d'édition parisienne Naïve. Ma collaboratrice était la géniale auteure Béatrice Fontanel. Enfin le livre est arrivé et sort en librairie et en vente en ligne le 31 janvier!

Hello and happy new year! I spent a good part of last year working on a graphic novel on the life of german political theorist Hannah Arendt, for parisian publisher Naïve. My collaborator was the lovely author Béatrice Fontanel. At last the book has arrived and is going on sale on the 31st of January in bookshops and online!

Lots of New Work!

After a lengthy pause, it is definitely high time I posted some pictures of what I've been up to! The first three images are a series of drawings depicting moody Parisians in picturesque surroundings and were created for a Christmas show in Carolyn Buck's Market Place Gallery in Buckinghamshire.

Next, the other big project that was taking up my time pre-Christmas is the children's book I'm working on in collaboration with my boyfriend Antoine (the author of the text)... It's all about the existential crisis of a little dog named Basile who can't stop asking himself questions. Waf ou Wouf?, as it's called, is still in the development stages, but here is an initial double spread to tickle your fancy!

Finally, my most recent project has been creating drawings for a new product by London design studio Anythingby... of which more to follow later! Here is a little detail of a sketch from the development stage...

Aside from that, I've been having a bit of a ceramics renaissance, and have been working on quite a few commissions lately (which I won't reveal yet, just in case!) Here's a photo of a recent plate created for Antoine, a fan of the fox and the cat.

A bientôt!

T-Shirt Designs


I recently found a decent site for producing t-shirts online (Spreadshirt) and created this mad mask/eyes/diamonds drawing which I got printed on a lovely blue t-shirt for my boyfriend's birthday. I was satisfied with the result so decided to get one made for myself! See below... Both designs I drew directly onto Photoshop via my graphics tablet, which gives a loose, un-laboured look. Fun!

Kitty's Diary

A while ago I was asked by website designer Jo King to work on a rather special book project, a compilation of the extensive diaries kept by Kitty, a distant relative. These fascinating journals kept throughout Kitty's childhood and adolescence, packed with charming drawings and witty entries, vividly bring to life the small borders town where she lived at the turn of the century. Jo commissioned this family tree, intended to appear at the front of a future publication of the diaries.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Or is it a flying dinosaur? The Steading Exhibition

Last week I returned to Paris after a trip back to Scotland to see my family. This was no ordinary occasion however, as I had timed my visit to coincide with the exhibition my parents were putting on in their home, a kind of open studio/open house affair lasting ten days. There were many invited artists, with work spanning painting, jewellery, kinetic sculpture, video, ceramics, textiles and furniture design. As I was rather constrained by the stingy Ryanair baggage allowance, I decided that what was required were some lightweight, flat packable pieces, and I had the brainwave of making this collection of birds, planes and one lonely pterodactyl from stiff grey board, decorated with acryllic. Each piece can be slotted together - no glue required! I created a little installation above the kitchen table, hanging each piece with invisible thread.

The birds hanging above a table laden with posh canapés!

The exhibition was a great success, with a lively opening and lots of visitors throughout the week! Bravo! 10% of all sales has been donated to Friends of the Earth Scotland.

Little Thing

Back in March I was invited by Honkongese journalist Jas Tang to do an interview in the  Chinese arts and lifestyle magazine Little Thing, which is distributed all over China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan. The issue in which I appear is a special number all about ceramics, featuring articles on the history of Chinese porcelain, as well as numerous interviews with ceramic makers. I was delighted to be included! The magazine has a very quirky, playful look, and includes this magical pop-up on the first page. Superb. I only wish I could read it!

Wonderful pop-up double spread.
