Early Morning Breakfast in Bed with a Book at Home



Early Morning Breakfast in Bed with a Book at Home

Print description

A figure reclines in bed, reading a book. On a tray are cereals and an instant coffee. The morning sun bathes the scene through large sash windows, revealing a view of a large tree fern. Large velvet curtains and a rustic pine double bed frame this moment of domestic bliss.

Print details

To create this print, I start by crafting individual drawings in ink, which collectively form a collage comprising the final piece. I scan my drawings and digitally add colour. The original design solely exists in digital format, and I print it using archival inks and paper. I then release my design as a limited edition print, available in standard ‘A’ sizes, ranging from A0 (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm) to A4 (21 x 29.7 cm).

Domestic Interior and self expression

This work echoes many different sources: from Vuillard’s colourful depictions of the domestic interior. Many of which I saw at Pallant House Gallery in 2022, to the Alekos Fassianos Foundation I visited in Athens in the summer of 2023. It also draws inspiration from the recent exhibition in summer 2024 at Studio Voltaire in London, which featured a pairing of work by Beryl Cook and Tom of Finland.

I have been running a life drawing session in Brighton for many years; the depiction of the human form is something that fascinates me. Through these pieces, I aimed to express my own personal experience my own and the environment where I live.
