2018 Connected Drawing course at Trigonos

My 2018 Connected Drawing course will be running 11-15 August at Trigonos.  Places are limited.

Feedback from previous course participants includes:

  • A great deal – the teacher, the venue, what we learnt – a great course.
  • Being given tools, in the form of exercises, to approach using many senses whilst drawing! Freedom and uses of technique were combined to enhance my learning process and allow me to ‘awaken’ something in myself.
  • Having 3-4 days to do bite size ways into and around what we wanted to draw and paint. The sounds, the touch, the movement have given me another dimension to create within. The teaching so helpful – after 4 year part-time at Art College (no teaching!) 20 years ago.
  • So very much – thank you. The tuition was very pertinent and focused on the individual.
  • Spending time with an artist who understands my work and shares practices that keep it alive and open. Spending time just drawing and seeing.
  • Teaching me to see with my fingers instead of my mind and prior assumptions.
  • Time to think – and share in ‘discovery’ together.
  • All of it! The exercises especially were fab. Really enjoyed the circle time at beginning and end!

So if you think you would enjoy the course – book now! Phone 01286 882388

Glaslyn Osprey Project – Artist in Residence 2016

I have been working at Glaslyn Osprey Visitors centre again, drawing from the live video feed. It is another fantastic season. Mrs G and Aran have successfully incubated, hatched and are rearing two chicks. We don’t know what gender they are yet – but the bets are on. Many of us think this time they are the same sex – but are they male or female? We won’t find out until they are ringed. In the meantime, I’ll keep drawing.

Glaslyn Osprey project – artist in residence 2015

I am currently doing a residency at the Glaslyn Osprey project on a voluntary basis. This organization is entirely run by volunteers and dependent on donations to keep going. All the drawings I make are for sale and a percentage of the price is donated back to the project.

The Ospreys nearly died out in this country, and thanks to the dedication of a few they are now thriving once more. It’s been wonderful to draw the progress of this years breeding pair.

I draw from the live video feed at the Glaslyn centre and get down there as often as possible.

See my Illustration page for a selection of the drawings.

See this website for more information on the Ospreys.

Y Mabinogi

Y Mabinogi was performed on 14 March 2015 at Aberystwyth Arts Centre to a full house. Storytellers Michael Harvey, Guto Davis, Dafydd Daies-Hughes, Christine Cooper, Cath Little and Fiona Collins told the tales bilingually over the day. I drew all the stories live and the drawing was projected simultaneously on a screen above the performers. Sioned Davies, head of the Welsh department Cardiff University and the most recent translator of the Mabiniogi, was in the audience and bought the final drawing of the fourth branch, which followed the transformation of Lleu into an eagle and Boldeuwedd into an owl. The event was part of a weekend of seminars, performances, tales, tellings, sharings and music to celebrate the Mabinogi, all arranged by Peter Stevenson.
Look out for video highlights coming soon!
