Sculpture
‘Stuff’ is probably not the most refined term to use when describing the Fine Art discipline that I studied, but I just love ‘stuff’! As you will see from the images here, my practice is as diverse as you can get, and I still cannot control my childlike need to explore materials. Some might argue that art should be more disciplined, but if I want to explore a method or material then I will. I have absolutely no fear of trying new avenues and exploring ideas through an extensive range of materials. Although it is no longer very practical, I spent quite some time working in cast iron and pushing the boundaries in terms of what I could cast and how it could be done. Recently I have been making small scale bronze sculptures which are displayed with mixed media objects including hand made textiles pieces.

Spring is coming, it might not feel like it but green shoots are pushing their way up through Mother Earth. #workinprogress #goddess #watercolour #ishtar #easter #eastre #ostara #spring #celandine #butterfly #gold #silver #hare #sun #moon
I started a little group a few years ago when our local library became a Community Library. It’s called Knot, Knit & Natter. It’s every 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month 10am - 12pm. You don’t have to pay and you don’t have to knit! It’s open to everyone, just bring a project, or just bring yourself! There was a great article recently on @bbcradio4 about loneliness and how it is on the increase, little groups like this one are so helpful in getting people out of their home to spend a couple of hours in warm friendly space where there is no pressure to do anything but ‘be’. Everyone is welcome and our next gathering is on Tuesday at Kinver Community Library. We are a very friendly bunch! 😊#community #dontbelonely #textiles #craft #friendship #bbcradio4
