The Red Admiral

10 Jun



I went to the opening of the Art In The Tawe Valley (AitTV) group show this evening at Pontardawe Arts Centre. It was fab. Lots of lovely art, artists and conversations. I took a few minutes for a quick scribble, a woman in a backless dress showing her rather lovely butterfly tattoo – a Red Admiral I think. I used to recognise lots of butterflies when I was little, but there don’t seem to be so many around any more.


Here are three of the artists exhibiting at the show who have close links with Swansea Print Workshop. Viv is exhibiting a beautiful landscape in hand-made felt, Leanne a delicate illustrative canvas, and Doodlemum a selection of her delightful drawings of everyday family life. The Tawe Valley Arts Week is happening at many venues up and down the Swansea Valley until June the 19th. Check out what’s happening here.


I’m currently working on a series of expressive drawings of ancestral sites and if you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here.
