Here are a selection of photos of the Keep me posted exhibition. In the longer shots on the gallery you can see work by Adam Dix and Julie Cockburn, I love both their works, I can feel a blog post coming on about them in the not too distant future.

I have chosen a couple of artists here who are quite different but on a similar them of nature.
The first is Sue Blackwell an artist who primarily works with books.
I love Sue’s work, it is so beautiful and clever.
But then I am biased as I love everything with flowers and birds.
The next is Jazmine Miles-Long I have been a huge fan of taxidermy for a long time and can’t remember where I discovered Jazmine’s work but it is so beautiful.
I know some people find it bit creepy but I would love to have that lamb it looks so peaceful.
Right now I am preparing for a big fair in September called Origin. I am at the early stages of making some new work. At this stage I tend to do a lot of drawing and redrawing of images until I am happy with them, the I start working with them to decide which maps I want to use and how they will work as finished pieces.
The beginning of the process goes something like this.
I first get my tools
Then I get my inspiration
I collect paper ephemera, and am always on the look out for images for use in my work.
I then trace and re-trace the drawings until I am happy.
Still working on the turtle.
Some Kingfishers nearly ready for the next stage.
I then go through my box full of maps to see which ones are inspiring me and then…
…I will post about the next stages as they happen
