From The Top

19 Jan

Another little quickie sketch from my walks around Waun Wen in Swansea. This is from the last street before the next area starts and I’m standing (in the freezing cold) at the top of some very, very steep steps looking over to the other side of Waun Wen. The area is built on two hills on either side of a valley. I guess that years ago the River Burlais might have run down the valley (it’s underground now), but these days the area is cut through by a dual carriageway, a rotten bit of town planning in my opinion. But that’s what you get when petrol heads are put in charge of these things. Never mind, it’s still lovely.

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.
