There comes a point where you have to stop doing source material – drawings and photos and so on- and start choosing and preparing your source images for developing into artworks. I’m planning on doing some silk screen prints from some of the images gathered through the past three months or so in the Waun Wen area of the city and the first stage is to look through the huge amount of photos that photographer Melvyn Williams has taken, as he’s been shadowing me on my Sunday drawing walks.

And then I’m putting them through an Adobe Photoshop “Cut Out” filter to make them a bit more abstract. It helps me to get an idea of how they might start looking in the silk screen process. I’ve loads more to look at and play with ….

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.
