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!

In the studio

Basically experimenting with Lino at the moment ...

I just added a post at the Studio blog with lots of images. Trying to work in a painterly way means breaking with the rules!
So far i am concentrating on cutting seed capsule cross sections which I may then use in paintings... so working on the forms to find ones which might translate best into the way I'd like to use them!

Rushing to the next meeting.

Love these lino cuts! So important to find the best form to express. Amazing how the red ones are so different looking from the black inked ones!

Merci Maryanne!
Its a ongoing search to find the most ideal means to convey ideas indeed. In the back of my mind I thought lino might offer something so it was good to be nudged to play around with it!
