book page drawings - rooftops and more
rooftops / neighbourhood
yes inspired by my own local town and neighbourhood - we are in hilly territory so get various rooftop views around and about.... this is a larger book page work measuring 21cm x 18cm approx - papers from old books collaged together. I use nearly always Penguin or Puffin paperback books as they are in easy supply and I can often use books familiar to me - so that I can then magpie the text a bit - I like to pick out words and collage different coloured papers together. At some point I think I am going to have to make a large work that is simply papers - - a minimal piece that I will keep for myself, perhaps - though would I then be very tempted to draw on it?

I have a long, long history of drawing tiny chairs. Every so often someone asks me what they might mean and I have to say there is no one fixed meaning. I suppose they are symbolic of domestic life, timeless, and childlike
These drawings and more will be added to my shop later today, Monday 6th July at 8pm UK time
