My first line of pendants for Black Pearl has officially launched!

Fiona Deffenbaugh, creater of Black Pearl, and I  started talking about creating jewellery based on tattoos almost exactly a year ago and the first collection is finally on sale.The collection consists of eight original designs, each of which I hand engrave individually onto pendants to create miniature, one-off pieces of art. Each design is influenced by my tattooing, from classic tattoo imagery of the swallows and gypsy girls to Indian mehndi patters and Mexican sugar skulls.

Each pendant is completely unique, just as a tattoo!


The collection is available to buy through my webstore NOW, and through the Black Pearl online store.

Although I’ve seemed pretty quiet over the past few months, I’ve actually been busy working on two big new projects, a great collaboration, some new artworks, and a new direction in my work. Not to mention lots of new tattoos which will be going up into the galleries soon!

I can’t go into too much detail right now, but stay patient, keep checking on here for more regular updates and sneak peeks!

Myths and Legends

I’ve spent the past few months working on a series of paintings based on my favourite myths and legends, and I’ll be uploading them onto here soon. I was gearing up to showcase them at an exhibition in Clerkenwell from 1st February, but as of today the exhibition has been postponed, so I can stick them up here instead. I will produce a maximum of 10 signed and numbered prints of each image, and they will be available to order soon.

I will keep everyone updated about the rearranged exhibition, so keep an eye out!
