Doing Porridge

23 Aug

I’ve spent a couple of days in an old prison! Doing time with some delightful people. I can’t say any more for now but there’ll be more news in a few months. In the meanwhile, I came back home earlier today and had hundreds of emails to sort through. Luckily I worked hard on my Baby Boomer portrait drawings last week and here’s one strong women Boomer who was fascinating to talk to. I’m just over half way through, I hope I can reach 100 by the end of the year.

Poshest prison I’ve ever been in!

Over the last seven months, I have been travelling across South Wales with Rhondda-born archaeologist Dewi Bowen and Swansea film maker Melvyn Williams in all weathers with my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials to draw our ancient heritage.  Dewi is researching his latest book on Neolithic monuments and Melvyn is making a documentary film of our literary and artistic adventures.

I’ve done around 50 drawings now and these will be exhibited in my solo show in The Worker’s Gallery in the Rhondda Valley in September. Please click here to find out more about it.
