Ceramic Screen Printing The final part of the project which has been funded with a bursary from a-n The Artists Information Company involved using the knowledge and techniques learnt at Hot Bed Press to create my own ceramic screen prints. […]
Further courses in screen printing As part of my a-n artist information company bursary I returned to Hot Bed Press in early June and again in July to attend two more screen printing courses. The first was the ‘Screen Printed […]
“Supported by a bursary from a-n The Artist Information Company”. The final day, and what a day it was. The whole day saw us submerged in life drawing. Patti our model was divine to draw, an artist’s dream. Her slender […]
“Supported by a bursary from a-n The Artist Information Company”. So today was day six of the ‘Art and Anatomy’ course. Today was a combination day, studio time, continued anatomy learning, drawing and a visit to the Raphael exhibtion in […]
“Supported by a bursary from a-n The Artist Information Company”. Day five and I feel the end of the course looming. Not a welcome thought, as I want to stay and learn so much more. Today with the skilled guidance […]
“Supported by a bursary from a-n The Artist Information Company”. Day four and a move on to sculpture, wax and the teachings of Eleanor Crook. Eleanor has great knowledge in the field of anatomical and medical waxes. A specialist in […]
“Supported by a bursary from a-n The Artist Information Company”. Day three and wow does my brain ache. I will really sleep well tonight. I am astonished at how much information the mind can retain. Dr Sarah Simblet yet again […]

So this week I made a breakthrough and I largely owe that to coaching, my co-coach and the way coaching has really allowed me to work through and process stuff I had not been dealing with. Although coaching is not […]
So last week I did my first completely solo coaching session outside of the course (still for free) and with someone I do not already have a connection. I have already undertaken hours of coaching, whilst on the course and […]
The central idea to the road trip in Iceland in 2016 was to spend every night on a west facing coast to appreciate the full length of each day and catch the lasting hours. We were travelling west every day, covering […]
The vastness and remoteness of Iceland attracts me as I search to distance myself from urban speed and to get on geological time. This attempt to find a slowness that I associate with landscape is not really ‘slow’, as Iceland […]
The theme of impermanence has always captivated me and it seemed only a matter of time before the subject of light would come into my practice as it did during my first trip to Iceland in 2014. The late autumn […]

A series of blogs documenting my research and experimentation of the screen printing process and ceramic surface decoration.
Exploring the relationship between painting movements and the direction of travel.
This series of six posts explores my adventures through the light filled summer days of Iceland, close to the Arctic circle.
After the bursary year of questioning, challenging and explaining my practice I feel more informed and focused with a clearer vision of the direction I want my work to take. It has been so beneficial to hear directly from experienced […]
This year has been wonderful for personal development, business progress with BloomInArt, funding applications, collaborations and involvement within the local community. I struggle to blog but I have attached a few images to visually tell the story of my development […]
This week I removed the first casts from the moulds. They are perfect in terms of shape and their lack of bubbles. Unfortunately the resin has yellowed which could be something to do with the thickness of the cast, the batch […]
We three made work as one The tensions (often good) of being separate yet merged We noticed for each other things we might not notice ourselves We noticed each other noticing It made us feel like better artists We […]
Spending the past two months working on my new photographic strand of work alongside my painting practise has been an interesting journey so far. Following the photographic course at Leeds College of Art I had an overall concept for this […]
