I’ve been at Penlan Uchaf again this week at Banc Organics catching up with everyone, and spending time with the seedlings, doing some drawing.
moments for drawing
I’ve been inspired take a little moment to make a drawing every day, often only for a minute or two while I walk with the dog (although it could be longer, it’s hard to measure time when you’re drawing…)
playing with drawing mosses & lichens
continuing the thread with my woven drawings. i have have been trying out a few variations on plaiting strips together. these are papers which are painted both sides, inspired by winter skies. to plait, you have to twist the weavers, so constantly changing the side which faces you – or rather, when plaiting the three-dimensionality […]

I’m quite hopeful about this, these are three test pieces that I made with some small drawings that were lying on the workbench – I’ve written them with moveable-type letterpress letters that I’ve borrowed. You can see the metal moveable-type in the picture. You probably have seen these […]
drawing with card
Drawing doesn’t have to be on paper, it can be with paper – or today with card and objects. I don’t have a clear idea where I am going, but I’m wanting to experiment with some artist-book forms, and so I feel like I need to play with shapes, and to bypass my mind and […]
I’ve made a few experiments in finding out what happens when photographic paper and photographic prints are painted with ink ( the answer? it depends on the ink, and to the extent that I had expectations, its not what I expected …)
