ink - a-n The Artists Information Company
Blue has always eluded artists. Lapis Lazuli was one of the first blues available for use after huge processing. But not a ‘native’ rock to the UK. In fact, there is very little blue available in the UK for pigment. […]
Last year I was given a gopro for my birthday, ostensibly to attach to the dog’s harness but so far I’ve used it in my own video projects. Most recently an ink drawing on Chinese paper filmed with the gopro attached to my […]
I had hoped to have posted about each of the pieces in the project individually but Christmas socialising, collecting work and struggles with photographic images saw my time just disappear this last week. So I have just put a gallery […]
I find it interesting how two ideas can become one. The sprayed and cockled slotted paper was headed for another collage but got hijacked by this. Probably not ready the first time (29/50) is one of my favourites in the […]
I have a history with black squares and with lines – hand drawn but not ruled, sometimes less straight than I could easily make them – and with photos of lines. I don’t have a history with clips of nails, […]
I said I may not be able to post while I’m away but I thought it would be good to make an effort so here is After Meeting At Michael’s It Was Mayhem, number 25 of 50 Collages Before Christmas. […]
Just in case anyone is actually following my progress on this little 50 Collages Before Christmas project, I want to assure you that all is going fine. I have been steadily working on multiple pieces a the same time but […]
The quality of photographs for this project is mostly pretty poor and Mixing It With Maurice In The Morning, 23/50 Collages Before Christmas, is one of the worst. I haven’t got the time – or at present with collages in […]
I have been busy with making more work and also jobs in the garden so I have been slacking when it comes to posting what I have done on this blog and my site. Number 10, Didn’t We Believe We Were […]
Hese are some photos of work that is up in my studio space at the moment. I have taken down A Lot of the books and replaced them with abstract paintings and ink prints. the ink prints are of letter […]
Using the colourful drawing inks to create abstract paintings via droplets and pools of water I’ve managed to create macro worlds of colour, shape and pattern. The images represent the indexical trace of the ink in the water droplet and, […]
Another collage using discarded pieces of work, ghost prints and tracings, cut up or torn and re-ordered. The fragments are parts of a disjunctive narrative, brought together in a way that “feels right”.
Here is an image of the collaborative painting produced in Folkestone last week as part of the SALT festival. (see previous blog post). Thanks to Helen Lindon for the photo.

I managed to catch Rembrandt: The Late Works at the National Gallery last week. I might have missed it had not been for my mother’s insistence we go and see it and I am so glad I did. The prints […]
