Friendly Forest for St Georges Hospital Children's Emergency Department.

Friday, 21 December 2012

As 2012 comes to a close I wanted to show you a very special project that we managed to fit in this year.  I was asked to design a wall mural for the corridor of the Children's Emergency Department of St Georges Hospital, London.
The work had to be uplifting for kids of all ages with things going on at lots of different height levels.   The corridor changes in width, and leads from the reception to different parts of the hospital.
I thought it would be nice if the wall was lined with curious looking trees. Within the trees various creatures live, a smiling cat, a family of hand drawn koalas, a lime green snail and even a bear in boots!
Here are some pictures of the install, the work was made from sticky wall vinyl by Bradford based company new vision -

Many Thanks to Belinda Harward, who is the Arts Director at St Georges and is in charge of promoting well being. Belinda commissioned the corridor. I hope it brings a smile to a few of the faces that pass through the corridor in often stressful circumstances.

The miniature world of Sabine Timm

Monday, 10 December 2012

I don't know much about Sabine Timm, I would love to find out about her, she makes these beautiful little sets with dolls furniture, nature, paper, etc. there's something about them that I find enchanting. Finding discarded objects, bringing them to life by giving them a personality, she's a talented lady.
I love her sense of colour. I don't think she has a web site so here are a few of my favourites. Also you can see more on here:
