Poppy Asher Bloom

Poppy Asher Bloom is a handmade Silk Screen single cut maze book. The story is about a girl called Poppy Asher Bloom who lives on Honeydew island.
The book looks at Agreeableness at its most extreme and what happens when this cycle is broken.

This book is currently in Duncan of Jordanstone art college in Dundee 2010 Degree-show.

Modern German Fairy Tale

This booklet was made for a brief given to our class at the start of 4th year. It was to create a modern German fairy tale....i didn't do so well with this brief with finding the modern part so instead created just a fairy tale about a boy who wishes on his eyelashes to the point of no return. In this book i was attempting to look at the weight problems can pose on us daily and the effects this can have.
