Forgotten

I found some old pictures of my Nain and Taid from the war along with some interesting bits and bobs so I thought it would be a good idea to do something with them. Here are my designs so far! Also I found an interesting poem which I will include once I've made sense of the handwriting.






More coming soon along with the poem and more bits!

Living at home once again I have started to look more into what makes people feel happy. Here are some pictures from my recent sketchbook (which doesn't really have a theme just random drawings and mark making) and some pictures from my home. Bit of a pointless post but these are the things that make me happy today...
Sketchbook Scraps

Ink & Stitch

Pen Sketches
The recent work from my sketchbook is mainly the unfinished pages and scraps of ink and paper. Collecting memories and small pieces of inspiration is the kind of mood I am in today. Being at home sat by the fire and looking through old photos is a good way to spend a lazy sunday.

Button Collection Age 7

At Home


Contemplating memories had in my home makes me feel happy and content. Hope you enjoy the post even if it is a bit pointless!

Workshops

Handmade Paper
At uni for our PGCE we each had to teach a workshop for a practical art lesson. This one was paper making by Dan Wells. I had never done paper making before so I found this really interesting and its so easy to do! I'm thinking about making a book for my mum for christmas with some old sepia photos and stuff in :) we'll see how it goes!

Degree Show June 2009



I found some pictures on my hard-drive from my degree show so I thought I would share them! I've only put mine up just in case other people don't want me posting their work. My pieces were very lightweight so they moved with the air conditioning so it was quite hard to get still pictures but here are the ones I could find!
My collection was called Tranquil Reverie and focused on movement in design. It was an interior project designed for spas as installation pieces. I looked at unusual creatures that move in strange ways such as dragonflies and jellyfish.
