I am in the process of planning some Mindful Drawing Workshops. Which will involve being with trees, stillness, gentle movement and drawing .. Watch this space ..
Recently published is the Art Meets Ecology book. A collaboration between the Arborealists in Lady Park Wood and George Peterkin, The Eminent Ecologist.
There are paintings and drawings that were created from studying and exploring Lady Park Wood, done by members of The Arborealists including myself and text by George Peterkin, Tim Craven and Christiana Payne
I am involved in a generous and kindhearted scheme started on instagram by artist Matthew Burrows who’s wonderful idea allows artists who like many others have lost access to any income; with this scheme many are able to sell smaller affordable pieces of work and inso doing pledge to buy another artist work when they reach £1000
Not only is it a lifeline for many but for those who can we are donating a percentage of the money earned from this scheme to one of the key charities supporting the Coronavirus crisis.
We are all so aware of the heroes, our NHS and all the key workers – everyone wants to help.
@artistsupportpledge is the Instagram handle if you would like to take a look.
