"Mature, relaxed, supremely comfortable in her own skin".
I often re-use beautiful papers, prints or drawings that haven’t worked out the way I wanted. This is drawn over a cyanotype, an archaic form of photography from Victorian times that produces a blue image (cyan=blue) and is still used in architects and engineers blueprint drawings.
I draw from life weekly at Swansea Print Workshop, working with professional artists and models. This underpins my artistic practice and inspires me to develop the images into other genres - printmaking, mixed media, painting and intuitive drawing. Models do it for all sorts of reasons, but they all have one thing in common, they love art and engage with art by inspiring artists.
