Spots And Stripes

6 Apr

master 1g

The weather forecast is reasonable, showery in the morning but picking up later, so tomorrow we’re out and about in some mountainous areas on the trail of some ancient stones. I’ve been working on some Fabriano paper in my home-made walnut ink and I’ll be taking some pieces to draw on. I like doing this prep beforehand, I don’t like working directly onto white, it’s inhibiting. Sandwiches made, biscuits packed, walking boots cleaned of the thick mud from last week, maps packed, ready to go………..

Quirky And Lurky

24 Aug

On The Map press

Look at what I’ve been getting up to with fellow artist Melanie Ezra. We recently developed a quirky artist map of Swansea, edited by Alban Low and published by Sampson Low Ltd. Our local newspaper, The South Wales Evening Post, did this feature on us today (thanks Jenny White), lurking around Swansea Castle. I got the crease down my face. Ho hum. 😀

If you want to buy a copy of the map, at a ridiculously low price, please follow this link here.

Swansea: On the Map: An Artist’s Walk

9 May

This is a map I made with fellow artist Melanie Ezra showing our quirky walk around the ugly, lovely, bonkers city of Swansea.


Swansea: On the Map: An Artist’s Walk.

Ugly, Lovely, Bonkers

1 May


I worked on a collaborative project with fellow artist, Melanie Ezra recently. It’s an artist map, one of a series of twelve designed by artists across the country. We have chosen our own quirky route through Swansea’s city centre, pointing out the little idiosyncrasies that interest us and illustrating the walk with our artwork. Swansea is full of art, culture and history and in this little map we’re only just touching on the things that fascinate us in our ugly, lovely, bonkers city.

The map is published by Sampson Low and is available on Amazon (here) along with the other 11 artist maps at a very reasonable price so if you want you can get your own copy and read up more about the quirky seashore city of Swansea. It’s also great as a present.

The twelve maps are currently being exhibited at the Sunbury Embroidery Gallery, The Walled Garden, Thames Street, Sunbury-on-Thames, TW16 6AB. The show runs until May the 10th. You can find out more about the other 11 maps here. I particularly like ‘Seventeen Mundane Moments in Tate Modern’ by Peter S. Smith and ‘The Rats’ Republic’ by Dean Reddick.
