Add some info about this item
Joe Lives and works in London and Oxford

It is rewarding and fascinating to document the mundane and the ordinary. His work explores the the idea of adding value to mundane objects and situations, through various mediums and decisions. Colour has never been important to his work, he feels the use of monochrome expresses everything he is trying to say. However Joe's works evolve, he will always view them as drawings because that is how they were originally formed.
Having studied textile design at Derby College of Art, Jan worked for many years as a fabric and wallpaper designer producing designs for both the fashion and furnishing markets. She worked for companies including Rose & Hubble,Warner Fabrics, Sanderson's, Laura Ashley and M&S.
Her designs have been used in many places ranging from Buckingham Palace to Hollywood blockbusters! She has sold many prints and drawings, some under her maiden name Jan Collins; one of her latest commissions was the artwork and design for the Classic Ghost Stories CD by Bill Spectre.
