On Monday this week I had my second consultation with Julian Germain. As before, a whole afternoon was spent in Cowshill village hall in Weardale, shuffling rough prints around, with breaks for tea and chocolate digestives. And it was a really […]

For the past 10 days I’ve done little other than edit images, and by 6 o’clock last night I’d really reached saturation point! Poured myself a large glass of wine and went to sit in my back yard (it had […]

Detour

In the long gap since my last blog post, the snap election and aftermath have been a distraction… and life has been a bit all over the place generally, especially as every single weekend has been spent away. Lots of family stuff […]

Drawing upon my world

I’m currently working on a drawing piece. It’s drawing in the wider sense in that it uses photographic images from the environment around us. These images are a mixture of man and nature creating marks, lines and movement in different […]
