A suite of eight posters and postcards for National Poetry Day, commissioned by the Scottish Poetry Library. I used collage and repeating patterns to illustrate extracts from each of the poems, and a bright, off-beat colour palette which links the designs together.

One of eight postcards, this one features the poem 'Letter' by Hugh McMillan, hence the postmark-waves.

The theme of this concert was 'island life', and seaweed was a prevalent image in several of the poems set to music. The expressive, often macabre forms of seaweed were a delight to draw. Pen and ink drawing has a scratchiness and energy about it that is given depth here by the sea-like gradient in the background.

Production by Magnetic North Theatre. The photograph is Pett Level, East Sussex by Fay Godwin; with such a striking image I kept the design quite minimal, but drenched the sky with colour to make a dramatic backdrop for the title on the horizon line.

Poster for 'a journey through sleep and wakefulness through a Garden at twilight'. The garden was the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, and the exquisite musical-theatrical journey through it was devised by Dee Isaacs and The University of Edinburgh's Music in the Community. I created a collage to evoke the last scene in the journey, where the children finally fall asleep.
