I've been working on tweeking sections of my website and decided to add a link to my etsy shop where I am selling art prints. This is a sneak preview of how my shop icon is going to look. I started this off as a quaint little shop, but it now feels like a seedy nightclub. All in all, i like it and i feel it fits in with my recent work :)

You can find my shop by clicking here


I did these images back in July 2011, for a magazine submission. Unfortunately these images weren't used but I am very pleased with them so i thought I'd show you :) The theme was Heritage and after being obsessed by tribal fusion dancers over the summer, I wanted to look into the origins of Belly dancing. So after much researching i got in touch with Helena and Natalie who teach traditional Egyptian dancing in Leeds, and they were eager to help me understand the art and gladly danced for my photographs in their traditional clothing. These images are the few i picked out of a variety of different poses.

Etsy and stalls :)

So I've been a little quiet on here recently.... but don't worry I am keeping busy. As well as extra hours at work i have been working on ways to sell some prints. I've put together a new facebook page to promote my work and ventured into the world of selling on etsy shops- mine is here.
In Manchester and Birmingham, Jules Evans (Heresy and Heels) runs the Alternative and Burlesque Fair Quarterly in each city. In May I will have a stall, selling prints and hopefully a few other little suprises :) So please do come and visit me, all info can be found on the link, and enjoy the stalls and performances. I am also in the process of desperately updating my website, adding new portfolio work plus a shop to the site. Along with this my work is being displayed in East London at The Blank Slate exhibition which is open for 2 weeks ending in an auction for the charity NOUR, to help against Domestic Violence.
