Over four decades I worked in all sorts of different media and produced many kinds of work, so at different times I’ve thought of myself as a graphic artist, sometimes a textile artist, and sometimes a designer/maker, but really I’m all of these. I also take photographs, and I write, and some of my work has combined both writing and imagery – but these days I’m retired from professional work and mostly what I do is draw. Some of my current work in sketchbooks is on the Drawings page and on my postings on the Blog – and this is where you’ll find my sketching project at Cliffe Castle Park, Drawing The Work. For the most part the rest of the site is an archive of work that I’ve done throughout the last 20 years.
There are lots of ways all my different areas of work have overlapped, but there are common denominators: the first is landscape, nature, and the seasons; another would the interplay between fragility and strength, especially as things age and deteriorate, and the third is wellbeing – the search for ways in which we all try, in one way or another, to find wholeness and healing.
