Perfume Portrait #123 – Liz Griffiths

Liz Griffiths 50ml EDT

Head – Peppermint, Bitter orange

Heart – Spike lavender

Body –  Chamomile

Description – Formulated to release your throat charka; this light, fresh fragrance describes how creative action acts as a voice.


Griffith’s drawing, Untitled, was made on a bus journey, allowing the motion of the bus to guide the pen; it is part of a larger series made mostly in London, this one was made in Cornwall. Using this process, Griffiths is exploring ideas of authorship.


Griffiths’s work and corresponding perfume portrait were exhibited at Centrespace Gallery, Bristol, in October 2019.

Perfume Portrait #118 – Agatha Smith

Agatha Smith 50ml EDT

Head – Mandarin

Heart –  Rose, Clove

Body –  Ylang Ylang, Cumin seed

Description –  At first glance this fragrance references a traditional, deliberate floral design. However, hints of spice add personality and exploration that allow it to break its own monotony.


177 Woolwich to Peckham is the first piece from Smith’s Pocket Drawing series. Her most recent work is focused around the realisation that everyone in the world is living a life just as complex as our own, populated by their own repetitive, chaotic routines and inevitable daily journeys.

Here and Now

I have been invited to submit small scale works for Here and Now – an exhibition at ASC Studios, London- later this month. The exhibition has given me further opportunity to acquaint myself with cartography and, particularly, the capacity cartography has for symbolism and hidden language:


I present to the exhibition two postcards, each depicting and exaggerating our collective relationships with travel, experiences and sense of place. These postcards harness the notion of a phantom map (i.e a map that depicts a fictitious geographical space) and as such, use the language of drawing to highlight the enrichment gained from travel.


Here and Now will be showing at ASC Studios, London, from 18th – 25th July. The Opening Evening is on the 18th July from 6-8pm. All welcome!
