Rain Rain Go Away.............

I have taken part in  Urban Art Brixton for the past seven years and although have had to face many weathers this past weekend was really something.
Many light weights could not hack it and dissapeared, there were many complaints about the rain and admittedly some pitches seem to be worse hit than others and if work was under glass and framed it was a bit of a disaster.
There is something about this street in Brixton that really gladens the heart whatever the weather, I have met the loveliest people on this street,made friends and when leaving on Sunday was happy as larry.
I sold  a bit and would like to thank everyone that bought something in these ridiculous conditions. Love to all especially Tim Sutton who organises the whole affair.

Urban Art Brixton

linoleum, my new pal.

Many moons ago I made some lino cuts and for whatever reason the memory of this drifted into the past and I did not think about making them again untill a few weeks ago.
As many other people that spend alot of time alone with their own mind I have become overcome with desire to use this medium.
I am thinking about the images day and night and have discovered some lino cutters of the past that have the most beautiful line 'Sybil Andrews' being one of them.
I have discovered sources of influence of many printmakers that I admire today so have had some real revelations.
I have had some cushions made of my latest lino which I will be showing at the Sydenham Arts Trail this weekend.
Looking forward to seeing what the world thinks of it all as I would never know if I didnt come out of the shed!
I will be at 35 Bishopsthorpe Rd SE264PA
