travelling north

'travelling north'  oil on canvas 

 

Since moving to Shap earlier this year, I have begun a project to visit the sheepfolds which sculptor Andy Goldsworthy reconstructed in Cumbria, together with walking the fells and Lowther Valley to the west. The overlap and merging of other disciplines [walking, drawing, photography and writing] is significant in the development of new work. I organise my research into 'journey books' for each new project. The outcomes vary - from series of paintings to a set of fair isle knitted cushions.
