Artists for A Cheap Affair March

Laura Anwyl
Handmade jewellery inspired by every day things. Cards designed for every occasion. Each item is hand made to a very high quality, and can be personalized.

The project started as an independent zine run by artists Tommy Eugene Higson and Nikki Marie Jackson showcasing emerging and established talents in art, illustration, design, photography, literature and other creative and visual practices. Cheap has been involved and represented in various events and exhibitions internationally and is distributed internationally.
As artists we work and exhibit both individually and collaboratively and our work addresses various subjects and themes with several constants; accessibility, relevance and aesthetics. Cheap is a reflection of these abiding concerns and an ongoing project to describe and detail developments in regards to the broader visual and creative
cultural landscape in the form of products, exhibitions and events and critical writing.

Carol Duncan
Carol works as a science teacher and is head of physics at the high school where she teaches. Her passion is making things, always has been, always will be. She call's herself 'scrappy bow', as everything she makes is out of scrap pieces of fabric. On the day of the show, she will be presenting examples of the hand-made hand bags that she has made. They range in sizes from small apple bags to large shopping bags. She also has a selection of patchwork throws, some of which are designed to look like cushions when not in use.

Ashley Fauguel
I have just recently graduated from Northumbria University. I am an illustrator/ creator of pretty things to brighten your day! I have a rather strange talent of making pretty people look freaky which crazily enough makes me smile :) I have just started work on my first zine which I’m frigging excited about, its called "All my Heroes are Weirdos" named after a club night I saw advertised that made me giggle! I like to have my finger in a number of arty pies as I love experimenting that’s why I am currently learning to knit so expect to see some of my haphazard knitted creations!

Jeny and Amber like avant garde fashion, creativity, making a mess (or so our parents tell us), making clothes, customising stuff, re making old garments into lovely treasure, newspaper and its recycling ... our bags!, re cycling cardboard to make 3d shapes, shiny things, photographs, sequins, singing, dancing, drawing, pop ups, painting, fairy lights.

Emma Kelly and Hannah Fray
Both are Studio Managers at The Bluecoat Printmakers in Liverpool and Hot Bed Press Printmakers Salford. Collaborating on several projects and offering skill-swapping sessions to printmakers of all levels in the North West region.

Emma has spent the past year backpacking around the world. Experiencing an unparalleled sense of freedom, meeting people from all over, seeing wonders of the world and experiencing first hand the varied cultures of the world. She will be presenting the journey through her prints and love of artist books.

Hannah combines printmaking and the craft of cutting and manipulating prints, using prints as a base to layer, stitch and cut up allows them to adopt a 2d and 3d quality. Hannah's work intersects the categorisation of art and craft.


Helmut Lemke

Jessica Marshall
I’m a full-time student based in Sheffield and I make colourful, kitschy jewellery using vintage components and vintage illustrations of animals and ephemera. I have also started making hand illustrated plastic brooches and should hopefully have some of my illustrations printed onto cards in time for the fair!


Moon monsters come in all shapes and sizes! Each monster is unique and is named according to their style and personality. As an artist I make costumes and these little creatures appeared as a side product to help me realise the shape and form of my garments. However they are works of art in their own right and make delightful gifts.
