EPHEMERAL DRAWINGS 3



A new drawing on my blackboard. This one's based on some photos I took of a snowy Hebden Bridge last year. Snow... beautiful but it makes everything so slippery in our damp little valley.

GOODBYE chalkboard drawing its time for a change




Surprised at how painless it was to wipe away my chalk drawing even though I felt it was quite a  successful rendering of moorland and clouds.

MY STUDIO SPACE (unusually tidy)



In my tiny little studio space I do drawing, printmaking, painting and paper engineering with all the associated tools and materials. Sometimes I can hardly turn round there's so much stuff to be stored. So it takes a huge effort to make it suitably tidy and safe to allow people in for open studios. For a couple of days the space is lovely and calm and then it all unravels again...

FESTIVE OPEN STUDIOS WEEKEND DECEMBER 6 & 7




Its time for the seasonal celebrations at my base in Brooklyn Studios in Hebden Bridge and we are once again holding our annual Festive Open Weekend this coming Saturday and Sunday, 6 & 7 December, 11 am to 5 pm.

FESTIVE OPEN STUDIOS WEEKEND 6 & 7 DECEMBER 11.00 - 5.00
BROOKLYN STUDIOS, HEBDEN BRIDGE HX7 7DD

It will be lovely to see old friends and new. As usual I'll be making my famous Brooklyn Mulled Cider to keep  the cold at bay but this year there will also be alcohol-free hot apple punch as an alternative for drivers and those being sensible!

I will be showing a wide variety of my work including new large charcoal drawings as well as some old favourites and a range of highly affordable small prints.
