RE USE / RECYCLE / UP CYCLE

Project i am involved in ...may look like urbexing of some sort but no! ....This is my pile of stuff I am doing up and slowly falling in love with my collection,  but it not 'mine' its part of an community enterprise thing. Not sure how I fell into this but thats me , get my fingers into allsorts ....




Totaly fell in love with these curved chairs, sorry no before photos....but had straight heavy legs with a mass of metal work.....



“OUR AIM IS NOT TO PRODUCE GOODS FOR PEOPLE TO BUY, BUT TO CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE TO LIVE”

ReBuild North East was registered as a Community Interest Company on the 9th July 2009 and aims to become the regional centre of excellence for the community reuse and recycling sector.

If Colleen did colour....

It was probably look like this....


Thanks Sis for use of your photos! Knew they would come in handy....

Been awhile...

Pop up shops last day, no news on that front but so much is going on here. Not sure that this blog is of great interest to anyone, it more a personal log of my journey. ...but been doing a course and hopefully I can soon be posting stuff and stories you want to read, thats the plan.

I am winding and twisting my way through trying to be successful as an artist, make a living from it and I have been here before but not in the same way, redundancy has changed that!   All for the better. I have in the past continually change my work in the hope that it sells or fits in. Big difference now... now my work is my work and I am  finding a place where it fits...been doing social media and promotion style courses.  I have joined facebook pages for all sorts including  paper cutting and seem some wonderful stuff and some of my work lends itself to template so those have gone on my website...more to follow and room for development, decals are staying -with more designs and modifications....getting that all ready for Spring 2015.   

Surprising to most who know me is I have been accepted to submit designs for tattoos....very excited if not a little reserved as may not work but that is work as I like to work!  see myweb page... got a link got/certified!!!!
Waiting to see if client accepts this....feedback first one!

Three cushions done and ready for pop up shop

These are  unique one off pieces. As with all my cut outs each product can be different, or similar these are made up but can take orders....
Been testing products out for ease of use and suitability prices on the two rabbit cushion reflect this, all be said they would make a nice statement in some one home.

Just had to draw....

Fell in love with this old sign/ circus carousel horse had to draw and thought I would share. He will be making his way onto my products and into my shop as a decal, I hope!  Not long to go and stuff will have to be ready for the pop up shop...

Been searching sketch books and old work for retro tattoo type images, looking for this feel. Thanks to lots of photos, work from last trip to London V&A  and last degree project years ago... plus a lecturer twho still inspires me.  I am pleased, what do people think?
