Gravesham Arts Sponsored Artist 2018/2019

I have pleasure in announcing that I’m sponsored artist for Gravesham arts 2018/2019 . Working along side artist  Jacqueline Byrne. Our project called ‘ Inside Out’ we will running workshop & exhibiting next year.

Our workshops allow individuals to explore and express themselves though Collage.  We will be use scraps of paper, fabric, words, materials and found things from our boxes of treasure and on site locations. 
We will encourage free thinking and self expression through the creative process of making vision boards & much more. 
The boards will be a tool to examine inner self image and thoughts alongside looking outwards into our known worlds.  When we look, really look, we find unexpected and often hidden treasures both inside and outside of our everyday living experience.

Lost in the landscape. Out the front door early hot foot to the marsh . Must catch the sunrise . Oh and what a sunrise with mist and all the trimmings. Walked the sound tunnel to the sea wall , lost in bird sound. Now having breakfast, with two sketches under my belt. I’ve won the day.

Celebrating women that climb


Freeing El Cap is something most climbers want to do when they get to a certain level.

Everything about the wall, it’s beauty, history, height and the hard nature of the climbing make freeing el cap the ultimate goal for a good climber. And yet that goal can do nothing to prepare you for the spectacular and unique experiences of just being on the wall.
