Ochres from Clearwell mines.

As well as the gorgeous mineral pastels from Cumbria I featured in my last blog post, I also have these lovely pots of mineral pigments from the Clearwell Cave mine in the Forest of Dean. Husb and I visited last Autumn and were amazed by the beauty of the underground caverns, which are reasonably easy to get around. But my main motive for going there was to buy some of the pigments they mine there. Ochre has been mined there by Freeminers for about 4,500 years and it’s still going strong.

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.
