Day two, postcard number two. I’m not exactly sure what is going on here but I’m having fun. Trying not to think too much, just see what happens. It will be interesting to see them all together at the end of the week, in fact I better get my skates on otherwise there will be no chance of completing 10!

Monday Challenge!

So, I’ve st myself a challenge to create 10 original collages at postcard size by the end of this week. These will then be available for sale at £65 each on Friday. Please keep a look out at This is the first, it kind of looks like a building but it’s actually a collage of book shelves taken from a 1963 publication called ‘The Art of Interior Decoration’ by Hachette.

So, I was a little shocked to see that my last blog post was nearly a whole year ago! I’m not sure if anyone visits here anymore but fingers crossed this might reach someone, and maybe inspire.

A lot has changed this past year. Elphick’s is no longer a retail space on Columbia Road but we still have the online shop, where you can buy affordable prints by some of your favourite artists.

We are now located in Hackney Wick, in the Bridget Riley Studios on Dace Road. I’m already loving it on ‘Fish Island’ and it’s great to be surrounded by so many creative people.

The new studio space, and not having a retail space is giving me the time and inspiration to create my own work again, which I am extremely excited about. I’ve only been here a few days and I’ve already made three postcards which are up for auction to raise money for the Hepatitis C Trust.

I will post more new work as it happens. Have a great day.
