Unfortunately, there was a small flood at my studio, and I did lose a few bits (thankfully not too much) so have had to spend quite a bit of time sorting and managing. However, now that things have been sorted, I've been able to do quite a few drawings.
I've started to experiment with tracing paper; I'm not totally sure where these ideas are going - it's very much still at a playing and exploring stage at the minute. For the last piece, I also added sewing thread and masking tape, which is a bit of a new 'messier' approach for me. Whilst I don't think these pieces have totally succeeded, I am interested in them as experiments and think I'll continue with these types of play for a while.
I'm really thrilled that the above piece, "The Nest" has been accepted to the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing prize. I'm going to frame it really nicely today and send it off. This is the biggest show I've been accepted to and it's been on my 'bucket'/'manifestation' type lists for a few years. This is the first time I've felt confident enough to apply, and to be accepted first time is such a wonderful boost.
