Bringing Birmingham to Life with Blue Moon

Made On The Canal has teamed up with Blue Moon, in creating a unique Birmingham skyline image that will be applied on their glassware.
The image will wrap around the glass, and is crammed with as many features as possible at such a small scale. From our industrial heritage, working canals, natural wildlife and ever changing skyline, there is something for everyone on this glass.

On 22nd June, 12:00 - 6:00 pm, Victoria Square, I will be recreating the glassware design on a much grander scale. The largest 3D piece I’ll have created to date, certainly something different and will be pushing the multilayered technique commonly seem in my commission work.
And to entice you further, there will be a minibar on site!

Check out the main Blue Moon website for additional information.
Can’t wait to see you there!

Sparkling Afternoon Tea 2019

On 19th May I will be at Park Regis Hotel, selling my wares to raise money for the Parkinson’s charity.
A number of other boutique stalls will be there (more information will come closer to the date).
There will be live entertainment, music, food and bubbly, or tea for the less adventurous.
With 360 degree views of the city, this will be an amazing event on a bright sunny day.

If you are interested or know someone who would be, please click on the image below to be taken to the main events page. Don’t forget to forward this to friends and family.



It is time for a fresh new look for Made On The Canal. This minimal design should be reflective of the style applied to my illustrations and other work.
MOTC has seen some major changes over the past three years. Fortunately I have been in a position where I can trial certain products and techniques at craft markets and gift shops.
After listening to my customers, and friends at local museums and galleries, I have decided to focus on creating a greater range of greeting cards and prints. People living and visiting Birmingham enjoy the rich heritage and varied styles of architecture the city has to offer. And I want to be there, to provide affordable mementos and gifts you can share with friends and family.

The 3D technique applied to the larger pieces of work has developed enormously, and the level of detail is something I wouldn’t have considered reaching 3 years ago.
Creating personal pieces, such as homes and wedding anniversary gifts gives me immense joy.
I love creating bespoke pieces and it’s a great feeling to hand over a commission to someone who it means so much.
This is another area of work where Made On The Canal will focus on developing. With every commission I push myself to reach a higher level of 3D detail and accuracy.

A big thank you to all who have supported me over the years! Things are going well, ever changing and leading to new opportunities… exciting times!
