Presentation

Ink and Paper: video

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 […]

Small world

I think my dad has had all his tests for now. While waiting for him to emerge from his last scan, I started talking to someone in the waiting room who turned out to be a former local journalist (working for a […]

A few hours in the studio

  My father is at the age when he seems to be either at the doctor’s or at the hospital for tests and I feel like I am running from one meeting to the next and taking him to his […]

Next steps

Some final thoughts

So now it’s time to sum up something of what I’ve done with my bursary. I have experimented with casting resin into blocks and worked with Meltdowns in Ramsgate to learn some of the technical stuff and done lots of […]

New direction?

I have just finished a couple of small collage pieces incorporating images cut from postcards. I think they are quite successful and in line with the way I work – which is to experiment and play with stuff first and then […]
