Taking A Line For A Walk















Do you remember those drawing exercises they would make you do on the Foundation course? One of them was learning to draw without taking your pen/pencil off the paper. There should be no isolated aspect to the drawing. I’ve got my niece staying with me and last christmas I bought her Art in a box from the TATE which was full of different projects for her to do. One of them was the taking a line for a walk drawing exercise. We haven’t embarked on that project yet but I decided to go ahead and do it while she was busy painting. Totally forgot how much fun it is and I actually really like the final outcome. I don’t know about anyone else but I have bouts of just not being able to get out of my own head, its crazy. Im just stuck on work which you have to be able to sell and constantly thinking about the consumer. Now I know that when you start out as an artist these are jobs you have to do but not when it affects your imagination. Thats why I enjoy the time my niece spends with me so much, I forget about creating work for my shop and more about just creating.

Take care,

New Cards in Shop





I’m actually going to hand draw these as the orders come in instead of printing them off. The quality is better that way i think. These were something that I was playing about with today, I was doodling and I had a page full of these so thought they would look quite cute as little thank you cards or whatever people wanted to use them for.

This is the first in a series of bell jar installations I’m planning to do. Obviously they’re quite similar to ‘The Borrowers’ work that I did previously. The work is super small, the jar is only about 10cm in height.  I love doing work like this, I’m really glad that I’ve got back into it. Im just enjoying experimenting and seeing what I come up with. Enjoy and take care. x
