Academy of St Martin in the Field Orchestra Collages

I worked with the amazing Caroline Clark through Handsome Frank to create a series of mixed media collages for The Academy of St Martin in the Fields who are an absolutely incredible orchestra. It was a joy to work on such a fun project and revisit a technique I love but haven't had a commercial chance to use, AND for such an important institution. Some of you may already know that I play the piano and am learning to play the cello so music is a great passion of mine, what an honour :) I believe they're being animated at some point so I'll post a link up to that when I can.
"The Academy of St Martin in the Fields performs fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world’s most loved classical music.
We are known for our polished and refined sound, with performances rooted in outstanding musicianship. And whilst our focus is the Classical era, we are never afraid to perform something completely new. Our founder is Sir Neville Marriner, whose vision and inspiration keep the Academy sound and spirit alive. Today we are led artistically by our Music Director virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell, and the membership of the orchestra who create an annual programme of inspirational and inventive performances. Each year we also work with some of the world’s most talented soloists and directors. We re-invent ourselves from a large chamber orchestra to a small chamber group, so that we can perform the music at its very best.
We are not reliant on any one venue but travel the world, playing a huge variety of venues from church halls to the grandest concert halls in Europe. Our commitment to international touring means our music is equally loved in New York and Nuremberg. Whilst our heritage and roots are in the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, our mission is to bring our unique interpretation of classical music to all parts of London, all parts of Britain, indeed all parts of the World.
We also have a responsibility to the future. So we spend time with young musicians, in schools, in music colleges and with people who are less privileged because we truly believe our music can make a difference to their lives. We enjoy our work and want to enthuse our audiences, re-pay our supporters and partner our sponsors" 'About Us' section on their website

Dove Prints

I have made two drawings of doves that will become a new print. I currently haven't printed a whole edition so if you'd need a particular size, that can be discussed. They could be printed quite large. They're on gorgeous Somerset Satin 330gsm paper and I can also offer a framing service if it's being shipped within the UK. Please email me with any questions
