al murphy

Al Murphy's work is fun and he's a funny guy too. I went to see his show at Ink_d in Brighton and then saw him giving a very entertaining talk last week at Glug, Brighton's creative networking event.

I love rabbits and I love this photo by Hannah Clare.  Here are some other nice photos/ collages from her website.

up and beyond

This week I went to Up and Beyond - Brighton University's graduate show. The first thing to catch my eye was Helena Beer's work in the foyer. I'm a sucker for monochrome so her beautifully intricate pieces were right up my street. On the other hand I love it when artists have a great eye for colour and Zoe Landry's display of cardboard houses and prints presented on tree trunks was one of the most delightful of the show.

My other favourite work in the show was from fine art painter Hannah Wilkinson whose collection of graphite, charcoal and watercolour works on paper were mysterious and mesmerising.

And a couple of other things that caught my eye were Emma Brant's narrative jewellery inspired by her grandmother's memoirs....


...and this fantastic photograph by Alex Catt

new website, new blog

I've been busy doing lots of drawing recently and I've neglected my blogging activity. As I now have a website where you can see my work I've decided on a new approach to the blog. I'll be posting about other artists/ blogs/ websites that I like, along with news about what I'm up to and occasionally some of my 'work in progress' ... and maybe some other random stuff along the way. I hope you enjoy it.
