Lukesland Gardens on the southern edge of Dartmoor,Devon, UK. The weather has been wind and rain but I had an inspirational visit on Sunday morning. Every season brings beauty in these gardens.
Really enjoying experimenting with mark making and new paints in the studio. A work in progress. The River Erme at Piles Copse is the inspiration for this one. #sogoodtobeback
I find myself cloud watching…these are from Hanger Down Clump, South Dartmoor and Leather Tor. I have been working at the top of the moor and find it hard to come back down as the clouds and light change so quickly up there.
Well hello its 2021… this is my walk from home at the time being…walking amongst trees reminds of a project I was involved in. Shelley Sacks’ Project “University of the Trees” in 2007. Shelley was a Professor at Oxford Brookes. She works on interdisciplinary social sculpture projects and studied alongside Joseph Beuys.
I used this social sculpture process within my community projects over the last 10 years. More investigation is needed on the Earth Forum Initiative. I am finding looking back at previous work is helping to focus on the future.
I am delighted to feature in Venture Magazine this Autumn. Right now is a time for collecting ideas and making the sketchbooks…….. keep looking forward..
Home. Evening Walk along the River Dee to the corner of the Peninsula. Views across Liverpool Bay. Silhouette of Hilbre Islands with the Point of Ayr and Snowdonia Range in the light of the setting sun. In oceanography terms this estuary is a Region of Freshwater Influence……..water, fresh, salt, heat, tide and shelf….
Home on The Peninsula. Big moody Skies over Hilbre Island, middle eye and little eye. High tides on the River Dee marshes 4 Short eared Owls and 2 Marsh Harriers hunting. Screeches amongst the calls of curlews geese and shanks.
Delighted to be receiving “An emerging Artist Bursary ” and “The Joanna Radford Award” from Devon Artist Network. Thank you DAN and nice photo by Natacha Du Pont De Bie.

More details to follow…… and work to be done.
