Paper Textiles Drawing Landscape feathers woodlands gold leaf gardens

'Embroidered paper structures emerging out of landscape - complemented with drawn responses to their origin.'

As an artist my practice focuses on the natural world.
My vision is to explore a visceral and expressive relationship to gardens and landscapes through observational drawing which have the capacity to shift an understanding of ourselves and the earth.
I include pencils, charcoal and ink in this sketchbook and easel practice. I love expressing the enjoyment and experience of being in a landscape.
Sometimes I need a 3 dimensional response, constructing objects in paper and stitch that are about the things I find and I am thinking about whilst making the drawings.

For the ten days of the COS, I will be drawing and working in the Rococo Gardens and the Stone Bothy. I will be working on paper, which will provide the resources for a new body of work.

During the period of Cheltenham Open Studios, 25 September to 3 October 2021, there will be an exhibition of my drawings and paper textiles in the Cafe.
