To be Free / 2022
30.5 x 40.5cm

Linocut on paper

Current location. Get me home. 
It’s this city.

A lost pigeon.
A lost soul.

Things will be different this time. 
Pigeon in limbo.
Trapped limbs.
Lack of ambition.
no, Trapped ambition.

So many limes
But no garden.

Alone and Free. 
Delectable divinity.

Can I Borrow Your Lighter? / 2021
82 x 59.5cm

Linocut on paper

“Every time I see a couple of pigeons I think it’s us,” I told her this morning.
“And when there’s more, I wonder who’s with us.”

That night, with the day’s leftovers fizzing in our brains, we three artists head to Tesco, to buy drinks to consume on Cleavers Square.

By the exit, five pigeons congregate
“That’s us three.” I laugh, “I guess we’ll be joined by two others tonight.”
Together we make the holy blem.
The girls are rolled and ready
But, cue the frantic rummaging.
Cig behind ear, and he’s nowhere to be seen.
She’s left with no choice but to approach the neighbouring bench.

“Can I borrow your lighter?” she asks.

And with that coo, three pigeons did indeed become five. I guess I’ve found my spirit animal.

Lockdown Nightmare /2021

Linocut on kozo paper

We have the opportunity to rebuild a society.
I’ll show this print to my grandchildren when they ask what lockdown was like.

Even in a global pandemic there are teeth to be brushed, hair to be cut and windows to be cleaned. Why have our dreams intensified?
Nature come closer, invade my space.
