Back In The Saddle

Here’s another drawing from last week’s Life Drawing class at Swansea Print Workshop. It was so good to get back in the saddle, as it were. I used Daler Rowney medium sized sticks of willow charcoal onto vintage W. M. Saunders paper. It’s a joy to use quality materials.




A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

In this one, I combined the image of the bird with snippets of text of things my Nana used to say. She used to take me to Swansea Museum a lot when I was small and I could hear her voice in the back of my head as I was sitting and drawing the birds and bugs.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

    Really understanding the difference that good quality materials make is often the hardest thing to believe when you start out, but an absolute joy when you finally get it.
