"I didn't really get decorative plates. But now I do." When a young waiter said this, and smiled as he watched me install a wall of my upcycled plates at the café where he was working, I knew I had achieved what I set out to do. Sourcing vintage plates from around the UK, I use the original designs as the frame and inspiration for my concepts. It is the impact of juxtaposing the traditional with the unexpected that I seek to express in my work, giving a witty, contemporary twist to the classic decorative plate. I love art and design that makes me smile. Described by one customer as 'the secret Banksy of the vintage plate world', I hope my work makes you smile too.
