I had fun last week making these cyanotypes in the garden. A bit hit and miss as the timings can vary depending on the sun. Sometimes they work out and sometimes they are not so great, but the unexpected nature of making art is what makes it interesting. I have signed up for some printmaking …

Work in Progress for upcoming group exhibition at Parndon Mill Harlow. Time Traces Transformation.
New project – new work
That initial thought 💭 that leads to a new body of work. Often a struggle - always a struggle - you grasp at an idea and it doesn’t always go the way you thought it would. I’ve spent (wasted) the past few weeks trying to master gelli plate printing- after several attempts and watching many …
Where to now?
It is that time -following a big project, time to reflect, time to assess. There is a goal post for next year - in May- June 2023 a group exhibition with five colleagues from Digswell Arts. But where to start? We have a three word theme to respond to : Time Traces Transformation. Some ideas …
How did it go?
Thank you to everyone who visited us at our exhibition 'Death, Dreams & Desire' which took place from 22nd September to 2nd October 2022. The venue was the unique Safehouse 1 in Peckham, London. Taking the ideas of Sigmund Freud as inspiration, we opened up new pathways of expression and thinking through a multitude of artistic media. From the haunting and self-questioning, the deathly and the curious, to the desire and the violence. All of the senses were stimulated through sound, film, photography, drawing, textiles and paint. We are proud to have shone new light on Freudian thinking and ideas.

Informing my practice…..
It's been a while - the past few months have been a blur - emotionally, physically, mentally. All the same really, all linked, all part of the same being. The fog or blur is beginning to clear- focus, let's hope it's not just a fleeting moment of clarity. I have been reading both fictional and …
Childhood Memories…or are they?
The idea that our memories of childhood or even recent events are as they seem or are they post memory -an interpretation based on our own experience of events mixed in with other influences such as recounted memories from others, photographs or similar incidents...... I am working on a project with the group 'memento collective' …

This site provides a profile, projects, …

Miniature- June photo a day challenge
Back in the late 1950's I have a memory of a day trip to Southend. A day at the seaside always exciting but this was a really special trip - Dad had booked a trip in an aeroplane. The three of us in a tiny light aircraft flew around the Southend Airport countryside- with a …

1 June Colours and Letters: My Favourite Colour.
déjà vu moment here as I'm sure I posted a while back my favourite colour was greenish blue/blueish/green as an artist inspired by the landscape it's a range of colours that feature in my work. Black is also a colour that has been a constant in my everyday life, monochrome and minimal imagery, shades of …
