Last of Three Days at Littletown Early Years

Although this time around only allowed for a three days residency in the Early Years setting at Littleton School, I had a wonderful whirlwind of a time making collaborative paintings with Nursery and Reception Children. Acrylic paint and Posca pens were again the materials of choice and once again the imagery was rich and playful.

Drawing at Pontefract Museum - Liquorice Festival

I had a great time today drawing alongside families and individuals at Pontefract Museum with friend and collaborator Lou Sumray. The drawings were all based on objects found in the collection at Pontefract Museum and were compiled into one large scale collaborative drawing throughout the course of the day. This huge drawing will be used as the starting point for a new commission that will see me creating new window based imagery which will be installed across three museums in the Wakefield area (Wakefield, Pontefract and Castleford ).

Poscas and Acrylics at Littletown

Building on the success of last weeks session it was fantastic to work with some of the same children to start creating a body of work with acrylic paints and Posca pens on mdf panels. It's always a pleasure to work in this setting with great children and a fantastic staff team. Great collaborations, great colours and lots of fun! All images captured on the iPhone.

Return To Littletown Early Years

After a long gap of 18 months I had the opportunity to return to Littletown School today for a 3 day project drawing with Nursery and Reception children. What a lovely productive day with a prolific and focussed group. Super fantastic! I can't wait until next week when the colour work begins......

Bird Boxes Complete

Here are a couple of images taken at Huddesfield Art Gallery of the complete bird boxes which were commissioned as part of the Festival of Light.



3 Days at Hummersknott Academy

Back in mid January 2015 I was invited to spend 3 days working with pupils at Hummersknott Academy in Darlington to create images for a number of large scale mural panels.

The images below illustrate much of the process which involved collaborative drawing and painting using a range of materials and surfaces. The final mural was made up of four 8' x 4' plywood boards. Great fun!
