My Constellations calendar is printed in silver ink on a beautiful black paper stock, and includes 13 tearaway prints to keep – it was a lot of work, but I’m delighted with the final product, and the reaction it got.

I would describe my aesthetic as minimal. I’m working on a clothing-label identity, an exhibition syngge, a record sleeve, a photobook, two children’s books and a few new prints.
