Some new, smaller pieces, I have recently completed.
I have decided to call this series of drawings 'Spirosection'
(it's not always easy to find a title).
And there will be many more.

I have to find a way to get the larger Spirosection drawings documented and added to my website, but for now..

small editions

We've had a whole week of drizzle and low cloud in this area of the Pennies, alllll week - it hasn't stopped. It's been a perfect time to keep locked away in the studio, drawing for some forthcoming exhibitions and producing lots of project work for my fibre art business.

My studio is tucked away, on the third floor or a superb old mill in the heart of Littleborough village.
At Ebor Studio, we'll be having an open studios weekend on the 3rd and 4th September, when everyone is welcome to a tour of the building, meet the Ebor Artist, and to find out what events and learning experiences you can find there. (

I've mainly been working on a small edition of drawings this week. I'm having a small commercial showing of my drawings in Todmorden, at my favourite gaff  The Staff Of Life, to try and earn myself a few quid for christmas. All work will be for sale, first come - first served!! :o)

I'm making smaller versions of Cut/Flutter....

And some Spiro drawings (yet to be titled).

All works are originals.

Whilst these two drawings are placed out of reach (need to leave them alone for now!!)...............

...I've started a new drawing in this series, using an older spirograph tool, with a more elongated form. I continue to pick out fragments and build them up over time.... pattern, form, form, pattern......layering, playing, puzzling... monochrome, still.
