Some works on Paper

Common Birds is a concertina book. The other works are drawings and collage pieces.

Sunday Morning Studio

The studio is crammed full of stuff at the moment. Every addition needs to be carefully thought out. Basically the room is too small for me, so I have to be very ingenious in fitting it all in. But nevertheless it is a space of calm and inspiration, as well as work.

Collaged drawers

All that pattern in Seville and Granada got me hungry for more and so I set about collaging my Ikea drawers with something more inspiring. I think it turned out good. A Saturday well spent with trusty paper and glue.

Alhambra Impressions

A surfeit of pattern, but real harmony. Spaces that are calming and restful. Tranquil courtyards. Icing sugar. Marble and plaster-work like lace. Shadows falling across floors from latticed windows. Vistas of the landscape viewed through delicate arches. the sound of fountains and the smell of jasmine. Kittens playing in the gardens. Palm trees and lavender.
