The True Italy?

Photo's from the south of Italy - Naples. A poorer, grittier area than any other parts we visited, but very much the 'real' Italy; sweltering heat, dust, cars honking their horns, huge doughy pizza's, ancient buildings with paint peeling walls, cafes' scattered down narrow streets - a hive of local activity everywhere and (not including us, of course) not a tourist in sight!


A Journey through Culture and Time

Here I have created a magazine spread  for my 'Journeys' project, where I looked at 'A Journey Through Culture and Time'. I combined collage and drawing to create six individual pages starting with the Victorian Era, moving through to Japonism, British 1920's, Hollywood 1960's, and lastly, a double page spread of culture within Africa.
I love cutting images/text from magazines, photos and newspaper, and playing around with bright colours and textures to create visually exciting and intriguing collages!

Snapshots of Rome

Here are some beautiful snapshots (most of them taken by my amazing photographer and best friend Natasha Norford) of our travelling this summer in Rome...
