Read it and weep embodies emotion. Words create a reaction in us; love, dispair, hope-lessness, joy, anger, questions and answers

There once were marks that became symbols that became words , which are now moving back to symbols, marks. Is that progress?

This body of work moves away from paper and traditional pens, back to marks, wood, skins, fibre.

Using my calligraphic experience I am drawing from the past, thrusting into the present. Can, brushes, feathers, paint on MDF, on silk, or cottons will be melded together by letters.

Simplicity of mark, overlaid with tradition and my love of all letterforms, makes this a very unusual experience

This exhibition, INK TALKS, has examples of these early writing implements and poses the question:  is hand writing relevant today or is it now an art-form?

Lettering is my passion, and a workshop in Venice in October has reignited my love of and for the Ink, Pen and Brush.

The infinite possibilities of these three. The smell of the ink as it hits the paper, the gleam as it is spread with the brush, the sound of the pen dancing with the ink across the white paper.
