Explore through a collection of artwork and artefacts dating back from the 12th to 20th century. During the restoration process an attempt has been made to preserve the historical character of the images but also transform them so they are appealing artwork. Apart from my 'Gecko Books' collection every design here originates from a scan or photo of the original object rather than created digitally from scratch. The inspiration came about through looking at design in nature, but then expanded to include anything old and out of the ordinary. I hope you enjoy exploring through these designs as much as I did searching for the images and restoring them back to life.
