Tilby wearing shoe








Welcome to my retro portfolio,  featuring artwork from 1978,  PRET A MANGER edible fashion wear  confronting diet obsession,  TWIN CHEEKS – painted bottoms, to my current project BOATYARD: AN CLOS MBAD 2018 - 20.  I use mixed media, from painting to stage and film design.

My production design work includes award-winning comedy series such as Father Ted, Spitting Image, extravaganzas for Julian Clary, film design for Ken Russell and opera design for the Covent Garden Opera House.

I initially developed the feature film The Paperhouse, which was produced in 1988 by Working Title Films.
