Scaling up.


I've made some more ladies in the studio, this time adding floral motifs with collaged photocopies. I really like them, but I'm not sure if I understand them, at this point in time. The ease at which they come together is kind of addictive; probably about 75% of them happen first time, the other 25%

So, out of the blue dolls came blue ladies, and when I look at them collectively I hear Joni Mitchell sing 'When I went to your gallery, I liked the ones of ladies'. Can't remember the title of the song but I think it's off her album 'Clouds'. Anyway, I figured these studies are in

Army Complete


Regarding the Suffragette Army, I have exceeded my target of 100, and now working on larger versions. Twenty of them are currently on display as part of 'Rebel Daughters' at the Point in Doncaster. The rest are in a shoe box awaiting a suitable venue in which to strut their stuff. Their time will come.

Well Done, Sister Suffragette


I am currently obsessed with knocking out these ladies, which I think are in the process of forming an army of 100, to commemorate the forthcoming centenary of women's right to vote. Each soldier is painted on A4 card using  primary coloured poster paint in various combinations. Only 75 more to do.

Save our NHS


Wendy Cadwallader and I spent a lovely couple of days together creating this banner for the 'Save Louth Hospital' march that took place the first Saturday in September. I based the design on the original Louth Uprising banner from 1537, that depicts the five wounds of Christ. And then I added a peach hot water

Spring Clean


My studio reached crisis point and the only way forward was to have a clear out. I even got out the hoover. Tidying, brush cleaning and soaking mould out of coffee cups has taken up most of my Easter holiday, but the end is in sight; just one more run to the tip I can
