Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

Alice from: we gathered in spring





gatheredinspring.blogspot.com is where you can find the wonderful work of Alice Stevenson, a British freelance Illustrator who graduated in 2005 and has been in demand ever since. Alice kindly offered to allow me to post her work here. (Thank you Alice!)  I looked at her website as well as blog for these images below. Her commission work has been various as are her ideas and images. The colour story is very strong and I enjoyed seeing the plant and figurative forms shifting in and out of abstraction with layered compositions and pattern creating interest. last works are drawings from the blog whereas some earlier work is for commissioned projects.

Lovely to hear from you Janis! I showed my class of 11 year old girls your drawings on your gorgeous blog this week and they loved it!!!!
The way Alice creates the comissioned works is most interesting I agree. The image for Stella magazine intrigues me and the one under it...there is something so familiar on the one hand about her imagery and yet the way it is put together feels very unique...a lovely rearrangement of elements into something new.
I am coming up against a few things I need to spend time altering on my blog. When I have done that I would love to feature you on a post...which I meant to do last week. A few late nights, getting distracted etc!
best wishes, Sophie
