Settling into quite a routine now. The grids and lines have fallen by the wayside in the last few days, at least for now. I was feeling that I couldn’t get into the word (enough) that is my starting point […]
It’s now 5 days since The Print Shed show finished (Sunday 20th). It was an incredible chance to show my work and surround visitors entirely with my work. For visitors to understand what I’m up to I did need to […]
It has been an extremely busy few weeks for me. I have been getting thoughts and reflections down on paper, but the words haven’t made it to the blog much. Currently choosing work to take to Print Shed to fill […]

AUDIOBLOG – Please click here After my last post about not being bothered about the theory of others being applied to any work I might do, it not being my problem, I started to think about my own philosophy… […]
First Draft/Draught. Quite by chance, I discovered something amazing, while on holiday last month, that has changed the way I think about my creative process. As you know, recent posts have been mostly, taken up with obsessing over my dual […]
