New Work ...

Today I have been getting together a group of work to send to the Old Chapel Gallery in Hereford for an exhibition that celebrates the Hay Festival at the end of this month.

This is the choas of my collection of driftwood, well some of it . I store some of it in the garage or boiler cuboard to dry out throughly before using. My studio floor often resembles a ship wreck washed ashore.

These are some of today's finished pieces for Hereford, I have used some vintage text from Shakespeare ... My bounty is as boundless as the sea (Romeo and Juliette).  I have combed car boots and second hand shops for interesting old books and maps. I have a huge collection of maps so can work to a commission for any location in the UK. I like making my pieces very individual for a gallery by using maps of their location .
