About EdwardianPiano

The Old Piano's Dream

The Old Piano’s Dream: 1890s era roombox. The Piano was handmade using cardboard boxes covered with pieces of vintage book pages and a vintage music sheet.

Artist, sometime poet and short fiction writer.

I’m an artist, sometime poet and short fiction writer. I live in a flat in a Victorian house with my two pet fancy rats Rolanda and Winifred.

My main blog entries mostly feature posts on classical music, especially period performances, articles and videos on music history, composers whose music I like,  historical musical instruments and old books. I love collecting unusual vintage/antique books- I love their thick pages and old scent. They have such charm!

My artwork is inspired by my love of old books and literature. I am fascinated by the Victorian era and I love creating art from vintage and 19th century book pages which give an interesting visual effect: setting the scene and telling the story of the art piece. Often as I listen to classical music l start to visualise a scene; then I will gather my materials and begin bringing it to life. Victorian ladies, haunted old mansions, ghosts, and abandoned pianos – they come from my imagination and my hands wanting to share their stories.
