“Snowline Spiral “


“Snowline Spiral “,was created at Dent in Cumbria on January 22nd 2015.The installation was made halfway up Dent Hill overlooking Cleator Moor on the Western edge of the Lake District. The receding snowline at 250 meters above sea levels enabled me to create a delicate arrangement made up of bracken fronds placed against a snowy backdrop on a treetrunk.The background views compliment the image to good effect and it took 5 hours to make,always with the present threat of dispersal from occasional light breezes.Constant passers by greeted me with the added worry of their dogs running across the artwork. Last cold wintry day before milder air fragments and melts the snow.


“Spindle Sketch”.


“Spindle Sketch “,is a pencil and watercolour drawing of a metal object found at the old hat factory at Cleator in  Cumbria. Just prior to Xmas 2015, my main camera used to record and document the installations I make at the hat factory  stopped working. I decided  it was a good opportunity  to resume my drawing and so spent a few days drawing out this object which was connected to the manufacture of hats at the site.I really enjoyed the process and have since completed another drawing.The drawings complement the installations and will be shown next to the photographs at any future exhibitions.
