Events for 2019
Hot Bed Press Christmas Print Fair - Sunday 1st December, 11am-5pm, Casket Works, Salford, M5 4NB
I've never painted much, I'm not good at keeping a sketchbook (I mostly rely on receipts, backs of envelopes, whatever comes to hand) and I veer between too many ideas and no workable ideas at all, but life without creating would be unimaginable.
I am intrigued by the pairing of place and memory. We mark rural and urban landscape in all sorts of ways, and it can keep a physical memory of those marks often long past the point when any reason for them has disappeared. Similarly, memories can be snagged by landscape features from notable occasions, features that might become uncoupled over time from whatever they originally marked but remain landmarks on very personal maps; fragments of stories, told or untold.
I explore ideas mostly through printmaking and book arts, and sell much of the time through exhibitions, fairs and open studio events, but please get in touch if something catches your eye or you'd like to know more.
