Letting Go, Refusal and the third space Lockdown – a time when you have nothing to do and everything to do – both at once. Do you feel hypersensitive at the moment? Does your brain seem to be like a colander today, yet memories of significant things in your past float up constantly? Do theyContinue reading “Letting Go, Refusal and the third space during Lockdown – a time when you have nothing to do and everything to do”

me on radio Gloucestershire yesterday, talking about binks, banks and little twizzles!

Yesterday (19/11/18) I had a conversation with David Smith on BBC Radio Glos Nicky Price Show first section 0:20:50  to 0:26:10 second section 0:34:27 to 0:40:15 fave words that slipped out “bink bank” and “little twizzle”!

After years of producing I’m really enjoying exploring the Severn with charcoal, chalks and paper.

upcoming shows of River Severn drawings & prints

Since starting this both-sides-of-the-Severn project I have become more and more immersed in the subject, and in the arts in the area. There’s a tangible swell of interest in the visual arts happening in the Forest of Dean and farOpen studios is behind a lot of it. The farOpen team of officers, and many otherContinue reading “upcoming shows of River Severn drawings & prints”
