The Vigil

14 Mar

Sometimes you see an image that jumps out at you – one that might well become iconic. This is one of those images, from a photo of the arrest of Patsy Stevenson by Hannah McKay: Credit Reuters, taken at yesterdays vigil for the murdered Sarah Everard in Clapham Common, London. Willow charcoal, gouache and watercolour on paper.

 

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique 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 and to see the complete image.

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

Orlando vigil 1

 

Husb and I went to a vigil in the city centre last evening for those recently murdered in the atrocity in Orlando in the USA. It was sad but also joyous because so many people came together to commemorate those who had died and to stand up for what’s right. I’m of an age that I can remember when friends were routinely “queer-bashed” back in the 1970s and 1980s and the police and general public didn’t want to know. Times have changed. What was heartening at the vigil was the spread of ages, from elders to teenagers, united.
