Lying in the sun whilst the kids where whirling around me a few weeks ago I had an image pop in to my head that I needed to make. One of those ideas that float about and you just happen to be there at the right time in the right place and boom you know Read More

that thing we are all searching for

Flow. That sometimes illusive feeling of being in the moment. Making something from nothing whilst the energy is flowing. Your thoughts are in another room and it’s just about you, your medium, making, doing and being. I made this piece from 2 screens and some old wood blocks I had squirreled away. They just happened Read More

hanging out to dry

I know its rather Heath Robinson in its approach, but it doesn’t half look pretty with the twinkly lights in the back ground! I realised when I was having a play about with a new screen, that I had no where to hang my work to dry after I stuck my foot in the middle Read More

  Playing about with these screens and layering up colour and backgrounds whilst basically having no idea of what I was doing, where the images were going or what colours I was going to use could have left a more together person pulling out there hair! But, true to form I really loved the freedom Read More

I love these small prints that are mounted on board. I made them whilst playing about with some of my feather collection. I love how they change shape when they encounter more ink. Some start taking on a moving life of their own and others becoming rigid and don’t move at all. I also love Read More

I met someone a while ago. We just clicked. I feel I have known her for years and creatively we just get each other. It’s really exciting. The lovely Pea Restall was running a printmaking course that I went on earlier this year and we had a blast. She has since set up the fabulous Read More

angels and halos

It was my friends birthday and she has been an awesome tower of strength and laughter over the years. I wanted to give her something special, something that was made whilst I thought of her and channelled her energy. These little prints are the story that that energy told. Angels and Halos, the feathers the Read More

When I need to get my eye back in to creating and my heart working with colour and form after a break, I always find myself with a roller in hand and ink on the table. It’s a rapid way to get into the creative groove and not get to hung up on the outcome. Read More

Whilst in the studio making mono prints for work I am putting in a space locally, I found all these delicious prints on the things I was using as masks. They make a piece of work in their own right, especially set against the drop cloth behind. I think my favourite is the feather on Read More

back to college

I forget how random being in a learning environment is after so years being out of it. It works in its own time zone and nothing ever seems to be rushed. It’s all a little haphazard and more than a little frustrating. I went along recently to the local college who happened to be running Read More
