I have a lot of catching up do!
I haven’t posted for a while due to being forcibly occupied with the real world, as opposed to the world of Pigeon that exists in my head. In this world I imagine that anyone who is reading this, (or even knows I exist – Mum are you still reading these posts?) believes that there really is a city-pigeon sitting at a desk typing away with it’s beak after a hard days work scavenging and sketching.
So! Here is a rough round up of everything I have been up to in last few months.
In August I was part of an exhibition in Hamilton House, Bristol with Bethan Buss aka Boodle, Jenny MacKendrick aka Stitch Ink and Rebekah Leigh-Marshall.

Meanwhile I had been working on some drawings:

And finally two pieces I made this week…
That’s about all for now, I’m looking forward to being inspired by Spring and the promise of warmer weather!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my work, lots of prints and products are available in my Society 6 shop. And you can keep up to date with regular posts on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages too.
