I’m working on a lovely project, obviously connected to ‘The High Street’. Here I am sharing some of my sketchbook research. I’ve gone from avoiding drawing architecture to making it a focal point of my work… I can’t say much more about the project for now but hopefully will be able to explain soon.
I believe a garden is an important space. I love gardening and I find it very good for my mental & physical health. I have been struggling to begin on a project that requires me to draw trains, so I procrastinated by drawing something I love – plants and gardens. I have also included aContinue reading “The Garden”
Two houses I have lived in. Obviously these are connected to my ‘All The houses I’ve Ever Lived In’ project – but I’m not entirely sure why they now exist. (Apart, perhaps, from submitting them to Grayson Perry’s Art Club under the theme of ‘Home’).
Most recently I’ve been working on a model. I used to work as a model maker for Aardman, Bumper Films & Limbs & Things Ltd, so I guess it makes sense. I’ve made models before – but why now? I have just chosen to end a particularly unproductive relationship with an agent. I was clingingContinue reading “F**k-It Sue”

She probably swears on occasion too. Oh, and she was developed for #Colour_Collective. (This week’s colour was – you’ve guessed it – Sweet Potato).Continue reading “Sweet Potato Princess”
So after graduating, and my graduation images generating very little interest from publishers (luckily I had a lot of interest from agents, which at least saves my ego) – I had a bit of a question to ask myself ‘I know it’s not working, and so, why ?’ I decided I need to have moreContinue reading “Dogs and their people”
Just looking through my sketchbooks to find some that might be suitable to leave lying around at the MA Graduation show next week (that, by the way, is the reason I have been posting even more infrequently than usual) and I came across this piece of trivial sketchbook play. Quite good fun… I definitely don’t thinkContinue reading “Good Hair Day, Bad Hair Day”
