The Coppice

I have just started working on a small series of works with a Coppice theme for a mixed exhibition at Farfield Mill in Sedbergh. I am intrigued by the nature of the cutting back to stimulate copious regrowth and the fact that the wood is then used for multiple craft use such as weaving and carpentry.

I would like to echo this cutting and weaving in my artistic process. This early example is a watercolour that has been cut up and rearranged and then layered up in photoshop. I shall now use this to generate the next piece in the process...

Springtime at the Artroom Gallery

Yes, Spring is coming early in Garstang, Lancashire with a mixed exhibition of fresh & floral inspired works. I have a selection of my watercolours, inks and oils in this show which you can catch until the beginning of April.
