I have decided to blog directly on my website, giving a platform for an instagram style visual journal – but with more room for writing and pictures when I want.
A place to record short field notes and to share my surroundings, explorations and ideas with you…
check back over the coming weeks for new content…
hopefully there will be a follow me button when I figure out how!
Have a look at the process of beginning new work for the series PATINA…
Since lockdown, my studio has been closed, so I have had to get inventive with limited materials. Adapting to different ways of working can be a great way to experiment and get creative with new ideas. I have been making test pieces and paintings exploring surface and patina; layering, under-printing and building up texture with different materials and paints.
Find out about the ways I work to protect the sensitive habitats I spend time in, ideas for making art in a more sustainable way, and the environmentally conscious materials and suppliers I use.
Find out about the research aspect of my work. Read about the beautiful diverse habitats and nature reserves of Dumfries and Galloway and the species that inhabit them. The nature reserves project started as a resource for me to gather together all the information that I had found about the reserves I work in, as well as sharing my photographs and observations from many visits. New material is added as I work my way through identifying species and complete essays about different reserves.
