The Tattooed Lady

I am currently working on a commission for HOME's opening show themed around the funfair and heartbreak.

My piece is titled The Tattooed Lady and will be a vintage style penny arcade machine that dispences temporary tattoo transfers.

Each tattoo transfer is a new design based on stories I have collected about real love tattoo regrets and will feature the stories that inspired them.

You can visit this project's Facebook page to find out more and keep and eye on my blog to see how the work develops.

Pre Raphaelite transgender project

My Pre Raphaelite/transgender project was recently shown in Cornerhouse as part of Cornerhouse Projects.

The work is a celebration of transgender femininty inspired by local drag/burlesque performer Grace Oni Smith and the romantic vision of Pre Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti and you can see it on display up until 9th September.

Catch up on how the project progressed on my blog HERE
