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.

Selkie Passage – new work

I started a new stream of work today – drawings still on the Selkie theme, but with a different approach. There is still a performative process at work, but this one is slower, and based on formal elements rather than observing movement. This is the first image of four – not sure what direction the others will take yet. Watch this space …

Developing Dylan – another workshop

Performance poet Martin Daws and I did a workshop for LIterature Wales with excluded pupils.

They were great and worked really hard for us at generating poetry in response to a line from Dylan Thomas, drawing to music by Busnoys and then making both a book and a video. See the video here.

The drawings were projected on a screen above the musicians as they played.

Storm Damage

I went for a walk on Criccieth beach yesterday and was horrified to see so many dead birds in a one mile stretch. It really brought home to me the impact the weather is having on our whole ecology.
I drew these birds in my sketch book, and took photos with my phone. Today I put them together into a short video. See the video on the Artworks
