the traveling tap 4 } the pantiles } leatherhead, surrey

On a freezing morning in January, Roxie and I took my fourth Traveling Tap out for a walk around my brother’s new home in Leatherhead, Surrey. As always, I put her through the wringer. And as always, she obliged. Click here for more of her adventures.

Dar.Nur|Eve & Her Evil Sisters Eve and Eve

This piece was inspired by the original Eve and the apple, and then Snow White and her apple. Consequently I decided to include the evil step-sisters. Well into this piece, I realized that Snow White didn’t have any sisters, step or otherwise. That was Cinderella. So I thought: screw it. We all have our apples […]
