Dates for your diary!

Artsfest in Birmingham City Centre  – 10th – 11th September 2011

http://www.artsfest.org.uk/ 

I’ll be exhibiting my work and demonstrating my techniques at ‘Art on the Railings’ in the city centre on both days. Look for ‘cocoa art’ the name for the trio of artists I work with – Karen Arnold and Rebecca Jayne Dolby. Both are brilliant artists and well worth a look. Mine’s not bad either!! We work in various mediums and styles so theres something for everyone.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Part of a series of work based on a photograph I took last summer in Cornwall which I cropped and produced the first drawing in graphite of a rockpool and shells. From this I continued the series and

each piece is based on the last work in each work, hopefully each piece will gradually change – as ‘Chinese whispers’ in art!

More to follow!

Graphite drawings

St Mary’s Church, Thornbury.

This is a beautiful Tudor church sits along side Thornbury castle. Built in the reign of Henry VIII – although parts are believed to go back to the 12th century, it was used by the King and his wife, Anne Boleyn and his daughter Mary Tudor lived there for a time. The large drawing looks down the churchfrom the altar towards the old carved wooden pews and one of the magnficent stained glass windows.

These drawings were made for my son and his fiance’s wedding stationary for his marriage in August 2009
