“Great are the Manifestations of Ra”

Ancient Egypt
I studied Egyptology at the University of Manchester since 2012 and completed a Certificate in Egyptology in 2014 and a Diploma in Egyptology in 2016.
I specialise in writing cursive hieroglyphics which are mainly used for religious texts, and favour the retrograde writing style. My script is based on 18th and 19th Dynasty models.
In my work I try to recreate the elegance and beauty of the original texts whilst being as accurate as possible, and apply what I learn to create new texts. I use traditional materials, pigments and writing tools, but also reinterpret original ancient Egyptian designs and themes in digital format.

In my first degree I read Old English, and use my knowledge of that and Celtic Mythology to inform my work. I also have an interest in the art of pre-Hispanic Mezzo-America, and archaeology in general. All these interests inform my work.

Please note: Art is an evolutionary process, I may update existing designs at any time based on improvements to my technical skill and aesthetic judgement. If you require an older version of a design (to complete a set, for example) please bubblemail me to check availability, and I will do my best to accommodate you.

Moving Pictures

In Terry Pratchett’s Discworld they are called “Clickies”, either way, I finally got my video uploaded to YouTube where I automatically had a channel because of my Google+ Artist Profile , so I thought I would use it to show you what I can do in a more dynamic way. It wasn’t an easy process but I have learned a lot from the experience. / My first video is of my Art of the …

Getting in touch with the Inner Geek

+1 is the new Like / I already had a few shirt designs in the pipeline, but dropping in on a post on Google+ by the delightful +Laurel Papworth discussing the very important issue of what to wear, in an upcoming interview, I offered up my own irreverent take on facebook . Links to to cool Ts followed. / Laurel then shared the slogan that she secretly desired and a design (complete with colours a…

You say Celtic, I say Hiberno-Saxon

New Hiberno-Saxon Collection / Most people will call this “Celtic Art”, but more properly the pieces that I do on this theme are Hiberno-Saxon, or Insular Art; meaning the Art of the Island of Britain in the post Roman period. / This art form combines Celtic and Saxon elements, and it appears on manuscripts, and in metal and stone work in Christian and Pagan contexts. Having taken a s…
