This is my playground. An open space for ideas before they become bigger projects, or exercises to scratch a creative itch, or just fail.
I’ve recently felt my practice had been neglected due to lack of big projects. But I’m always making and this is a place I can share that side of my work.
Previously I have been conflicted about sharing unfinished work. Like it needs to be polished or kept under wraps for a big reveal. Truth is I’ve never been satisfied by showing off my work so I’d rather just get it out there...
A series of typographic and icon based paper cut sketches, created during January 2022
A project to explore memories of the Klondykers in Shetland - large Russian and Eastern European fish factory vessels.
The aim is to take the theme as a starting point to research before creating a small body of experimental work.
Since 2017 I've taken part in Inktober to refresh my approach to sketching and making small works. I use the official prompts to explore ideas that often feed back into my wider practice.
In 2021 I took a year off due to other commitments.
