I painted a seven foot Princess Leia at the For The Love Of The Force Star Wars weekend in Manchester.
The painting was made over three days in front of thousands of Star Wars fans visiting the event.
I was one of several artists creating work based on the first set of characters from the films to be made into action figures.

The Tattooed Lady
My art work The Tattooed Lady is a vintage style penny arcade machine tattoo transfer dispencer. She was shown as part of the exhibition The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, a show about heartbreak and the dark side of the funfair. I created four new tattoo designs based on real tales of love and regret to share with the public as temporary tattoos.
