GradGallery Presents: Harmony

Here are some photographs from GradGallery's current exhibition, Harmony. The exhibition is being held at The Gardens Gallery in Cheltenham and will be running until 17th July. 

Origami Crane

Here is an origami crane I made. I love origami and I am especially interested in the idea of Senbazuru. I was introduced to this by my friend Natsuki, who I met whilst living in Canada. Senbazuru is 1000 origami cranes held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. Senbazuru is a popular gift for family members and friends. I am planning to gradually build my collection of origami cranes and eventually fold 1000 to make a Senbazuru of my own!

As well as my illustration work I also make lots of little crafts. Here are some heart shaped door hangers, some of which I fill with lavender, and some with soft toy stuffing. There are also some photos of some bunting and hair clips that I made. Sometimes I take part in craft fairs - when I can find the time!

Sally Walker Catering

Here are some illustrations I did for Sally Walker Catering Ltd. The illustrations are being used on menus, business cards, letterheads and have even been transformed into an embroidered logo on the aprons!
