GREETINGS CARD DESIGNS FOR THE ALMANAC GALLERY
Taking inspiration from the natural world, I have created a series of cheeky animal characters using a combination of painting, drawing and digital collage. I start by drawing out the animal then build it up using my collection of vintage fabrics and textures that I have amassed over the years. The natural world is an everlasting source of inspiration: from the birds of paradise high in the tree tops to the glowing jelly fish in the deep sea. I hope that my images can be a reminder of how precious and fragile nature really is and the importance of looking after it.
All designs will available as prints in my shop very soon. Contact me for details

ASTRO BLACK RADIO
Love match duo Victoria Topping and ADJOWA have been circling the outer reaches of the fourth galaxy to bring you the music of the spheres. Alien funk rubs up against martian slow jams in a quest to bring listeners souls through the fifth wall and into the cosmic euphoria that can only be experienced through the prism of Astro Black. Combining the soft coo of intergalactic small talk with the bubble sonics of deep space, these two star-crossed lovers send out transmissions on the first Tuesday of every Earth month. Tune in your dial, don’t look back - this is the sound of Astro Black.
Taking over the airwaves 4-6pm at our new home
