Things I make. Places I go. Photos I take.

Baby Dresses to Pencil Cases

Last week I bought two little baby dresses for 50p each with the idea of turning them into pencil cases as a present for my mum’s birthday. I surprised myself by getting straight onto it, and even made myself on too!

Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford

The second port of call on our whirlwind stop-over to Oxford was the Pitt Rivers Museum, which I last visited some 25 years ago with my mum whilst researching masks for an A Level art project on the grotesque. The only things I could remember about the place was the huge totem pole and the tiny shrunken heads.

St Barnabas Church, Hadleigh [2009-2014] ~ The Bedroom Window Project

From 2009 to 2014 I photographed St Barnabas Church from my bedroom window. It became a bit of a project during the latter half of 2010, when I realised I had been photographing the church almost every week as the weather changed and I continued this through all of 2012. I must have had enough by 2013 as there aren’t many, and I took my last and only photos from 2014 in July, a few weeks before moving house. There was an absolutely fantastic sunset, and a prefect way to finish the project.

My Garden [Jul 2016]

I finally got around to taking some photos of a few of the plants in my new garden. The passion flower has gone bananas since it was taken out its pot and planted in the earth. I even found a fruit!
