Recently shortlisted for the Evening Standard Art Prize
Signed and dated one-off art piece, with free UK delivery.
It is not a print, but has been cut from a water-damaged 1941 copy of Girl's Own. It will never be reproduced.
Sadly, the women and the photographer aren't named. However, you can see the full article on my Instagram account by searching the hashtag AlisonSyeMiniCollage1.
I handstitched the image using vintage thread, which once belonged to my nana.
The whole thing measures 15 x 15cms, including the border, and comes unframed.
£3 from this sale will be donated to Arts Emergency. This is a small London based charity aiming to ensure university doors are kept open for those most able to benefit from, but least able to pay for education.
In keeping with my eco-friendly ethos, it will arrive in a package made from used magazines and the like. I do not use single-use plastic and parcel tape.
Can be sent as a gift, with words of your choice.

My work takes weeks/months/years (and in a couple of cases, my lifetime) to complete. Not only the stitching, but the time I spend finding the different components. Not to mention the detailed records I keep, recording my materials.
All of this makes my work impossible (and embarrassing) to price. So I don't bother trying to sell most of it.
However, I would love to reduce the hours spent at my 'day jobs', and increase the hours spent on my art. And to do that I need to sell some work.
I am going to try to make one or two small, and relatively affordable, pieces each week. They (or it) will be listed in my shop every Sunday, and the materials will be recorded on my Instagram feed under the hashtag AlisonSyeMiniCollages.
Each mini collage will be numbered. This is the first one.
Don't hesitate to give me a shout if you have any questions,
