I have been doing text paintings for ages. They are made on regular box canvas and come in a variety of sizes from small 6”x6” to larger 36”x36”. I use enamel paint in the background and gloss for the text. The slogans come from conversations, TV shows, books and newspapers and aim to reflect society in the way I see it. On this page are a few examples of my work but if you would like an up to date list of works and pictures then you can e-mail me. I do paintings to order so if you have your own phrase then I can turn it into a painting; I’ll even let you choose your own colour scheme! Prices start from £25 and go up in value depending on size and colour. Get in touch for more details.

My signature badge is my glitter badge. These are made with extremely sparkly glitter paper and are great accessories for your jumper or bag. They come in loads of different colours but mainly gold, silver, blue, purple, green, red and pink. You can buy them through me for £2 each (which includes special unique packaging) or you can send me a swap of equivalent value such as another badge or postcard/novelty from where you live. The more kitsch the better! You can send me your kitsch to the address below and include a return address, name and the colour of badge you would most like (I can’t always give you your favourite but I will try). I do send them for free but a Stamped addressed envelope would be smashing.

If you or your loved one would like to be turned into a badge then this is the way to do it. I have been turning people into badges for a while now and they are really great, original presents and all unique. All you have to do is send me an image of the person you want to immortalise and I will draw them and turn that picture into a badge. They even come in their own special envelope designed especially for you. They are £2 each and can be bought by e-mailing me (see contacts page) or writing to me at the address on this page.
