Bit Of A Challenge

As I walked the streets of the Waun Wen area of the city on Sunday, scribbling into my sketchbook, I came across a landslip. Some of the little streets snaking up the steep hillside are perched on top of towering terraces, and this one had collapsed, leaving 3 houses without their front gardens and piles of rubble in the street. Some metal buttresses and safety fencing had been rammed up against the damaged rock face in a massive and messy tangle. It was a bit of a challenge to sketch it because there are so many lines criss-crossing each other. Good practice though.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage 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.

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

I'm an artist / printmaker / scribbler. I love drawing and all the geeky stuff associated with printmaking, working in a figurative style. I live in Wales with husband and demented cats. And my real name is Rose Davies :D
