Quick Ones

We always start the life drawing sessions at Swansea Print Workshop with some short warm-up poses, because of the speed they’re very free and force you to get down what is essential in the figure rather than focusing on detail. It’s also  chance to play around with mark making – scribbly lines and very rough hatching. The two poses above are 5 minutes and here’s a 10 minute pose below.

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 and to see the complete image.

In this one, I combined snippets of a bird and discarded plastic with the image of a bug, part of the Museum’s fascinating vintage collection.

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