‘Here will I pledge thee, dearest one’ – 2020

Collage on paper

30 x 42 cm

This artwork has been a long time in the making and it’s something I’ve been desperate to share for a long long time. A special birthday commission I was given just over a year ago. I can’t even begin to guess just how many hours work have gone into this ? But every one has been a real joy. I love creating these. I just wish I could create them a little quicker!!!

It’s always nice to throw bits into these that somehow relate to the subject and thankfully I was given quite a lot of personal collage bits and pieces to help with this. Wedding invites, photos, plane tickets, restaurant menus and a few photos too. Using these does help to personalise these pieces a lot.

The artwork was handed over a few weeks ago, and was finally opened last night. Always a nervy one, but thankfully all went well ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy birthday Ali ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m always happy while creating these and I’m always open to new commissions. So if you do fancy having yourself or a friend immortalised in tiny ripped up pieces of paper, just send me a message or email. We can then discuss all the relevant details.

And for anyone interested in how I put these fiddly collages together, here’s a little time-lapse of this from start to finish. With a brief introduction on my process too. Hope you enjoy.
