Why do you draw with tape?
I've been making tape drawings off and on since 2007. I love the way that the image changes completely depending on viewing angle and lighting. I started off using pins and cork pin-boards which allows finer detail but is less durable. Most of these early pictures ended up with friends or even random people who happened to be around the flat (we needed the space). I started selling in spring 2012.
Where do you get your tapes?
I used to get them in charity shops, but it's getting harder and harder to find them. My best source now is freecyle. If you have a bag/box of old cassettes you're thinking of getting rid of (and live in London), drop me a line and I might be able to make use of them.
What about framing?
Tape drawings look great in a glazed box frame. I can arrange framing at a favourable price compared to most high street framers, so get in touch if you'd like to discuss.
Do you do commissions?
Yes, I'm happy to discuss any kind of commission (including for illustration work). Please get in touch and let me know what you have in mind.
What sort of price are we talking about?
I generally have a few pieces available for sale here
, which should give you an idea of price (although I can tailor commissions to your budget).
