Henri Matisse the Cut-outs at the Tate Modern

Some art is like a bit of research, or it’s like getting an idea or a concept and then some art is just very simply great. The new Matisse Cut-out exhibition coming to the Tate Modern this weekend is just that, a joyful and expert celebration of colour and shape. Starting off as a way [...]

Q&A: Peckham’s Cut Out Girls

I ran into one of the Cut Out Girls in Cafe Viva, one of my fave local spots where I often hide myself away to finish some tricky bit of work. This Peckham-based duo make a range of bags, totes and purses with a great eye for colour and a modern use of craft techniques. [...]

A local’s guide to Peckham

Peckham has long been the butt of jokes, but as someone who was brought up in London and has lived south for a number of years, I can say it’s the nicest place I have ever lived. The rest of the world does seem to be catching up though, Vice called it the alternative to [...]

WOW Women of the World Festival

Tomorrow is International Women’s Day and I will be taking part in the WOW Festival, celebrating women of the world. Recently TV shows like Girls (haven’t seen it, can’t comment!) have highlighted the cultural imbalance in feminism so it’s nice to see an event that takes a holistic approach to equality and freedom for women.

Roy Lichtenstein at Tate Modern

Today I trotted (well, cycled) over the bridge, taking a break from the Fashion Week goings on at Somerset House to make a best canadian pharmacy to buy viagra visit to the Tate Modern and their Roy Lichtenstein exhibition preview.

Tramontana Brindisa

Does anyone else get tapas fear? That subconscious small plates worry that you won’t fill your belly, it’s a really concern for a total pig like me.

I had my food radar on red alert at Tramontana Brindisa, the latest tapas kitchen from the Borough-based Spanish food importer. I was quickly calmed by some super-strong [...]

Gail’s Kitchen, Bloomsbury

Gail’s Kitchen opens to the public tomorrow, it’s a new venture from Gail’s Bakery, the people who bring you the posh baked goods, and I was lucky enough to be invited to a preview evening at Myhotel in Bloomsbury. The principle is that as a bakery they’re using their oven mastery to create original dishes [...]

Blackheath Shoot

Some images from a recent shoot I did with Charlie Clift on Blackheath for Living South mag, I love the light in the first one. Charlie’s great fun to work with because he always gets good vibes going. If you look closely you can see I used some real grody 90s vintage peasant skirts in [...]

One Aldwych Hotel

‘Where are you? Btw we’ve been upgraded to a SUITE’. One Aldwych recently offered me the chance to stay in their hotel, I’m fairly familiar with the place as it’s just opposite Somerset House so perfect for Fashion Week meetings/industry types-spotting. I invited my sister along as a late birthday treat and from her text [...]
