Work in progress a new larger scale piece of work, whereby I am returning to concentrate on the underlying drawing in the piece. This is the largest piece I have worked on, being 1.2 metres square and is a stepping stone to a planned 1.5m metre square piece to see how the inked foliage combines in scale within the image… more pictures to follow as the piece progresses.

A visit to Harwood King to see Quentin & Nyle on Friday to have a look at the prints of “The Harvest & Rose – & they are looking Gorgeous, really do the originals justice and more than that using varnish they capture part of the creation process of the pieces, – a few tweaks here and there and selecting a printing paper for the finished 2 editions and we’ll be there, look out for them they’ll be around very soon. Then after Harwood King I visited Ink_d gallery in Brighton to meet up with Dan and show some new work. It’s a great space which hosts some amazing work from textile artists – painters and printmakers, loved the layout and the vibe of the place. Dan had displayed 2 of my light boxes alongside the large drawings of ‘Acceptance’ and ‘Gust of wind ‘ which looked great in the space, I left a bonus piece with Dan too which I hope will get seen by visitors to the gallery. Left without a souvenir cigarette by soft furnishing artist Harriet Hammel … but just ordered one from ink_d now, they are amazing!!

New piece of work exploring our relationship with nature growing organically but constructed around geometrical forms. Following an accident with a large cup of tea and a plan chest full of drawings!! Spilling tea on the page is a large part of my work at the moment but this mornings accident very nearly wiped out all of my recent pieces – Transferring to the portfolio now.
