Mill Wood Garden of Allusion

May I present Hannah Bailey and Aidan Meighan's first illustrative collaboration! 

We have been working on a limited edition print for the Halswell Park Trust that we hope to sell in order to raise money for the restoration of Mill Wood, an 18th Century pleasure gardens in Somerset.

Mill Wood has been derelict and almost forgotten for a century at least, and a few of the follies (including a statue of Neptune) have become overgrown, or ruined, but the surviving Grotto,  cascades, Bath Stone Bridge and the Temple of Harmony were just enough for us to get an idea of the place and to create this map of what it may have looked like when it was first designed by Sir Charles Keymes Tynte around 1767.

There are big plans to bring the gardens back to life, and hopefully the print will help to spread the word and raise a bit of money, to help it get underway!

The 75 limited edition prints are being sold at £75 a pop. Buy yours now! Single figure prints are already all gone, and the rest disappearing fast. If you are interested in becoming a part of this really exciting project at the roots, let me know and I can reserve a print for you. Cheques payable to Halswell Park Trust.

We hope it does Mill Wood justice!

Happy Christmas.

Greek Surrealist poetry Illustration

The Almond Tree of a Virtuoso Orchestra's Hiding Place

I did this illustration to be part of an exhibition in St Louis, USA, that has been put together by Poetry Scores; an organisaton that translates verse into music, film and art.

It illustrates a section of Phantom of the Dreams' Origin by Andreas Embirikos, a Greek surrealist poet. The title is as above.

Wordplay + Whimsies, at the Golden Lion

My exhibition is now on the walls of the Golden Lion pub, Horfield, Bristol, for six weeks! The From A to B prints are the headliners of the show really. They are black and white with hand painted colour, and available to buy as prints!

If you are interested in seeing the show, I'm having a not-very-private view on Tuesday 7th July and anybody is welcome to come along. There's also a fantastic evening of music from Live in the Lions Den that night (

This isn't a very good photograph of the show but I'll be putting some better ones up soon.
