Topaz Burnt Edges

Zen Garden Sketchbook (forthcoming August)

A 'Sketchbox' of 'Zen-like' sketches and free-write thoughts and reflections. The sketches are done in blue ink and gouache with tools from the garden including feathers, leaves, old potatoes and sticks. This makes it impossible to control the drawings or notes, and make the experience of drawing more immediate and raw.

The drawings and notes inform the fiction tales. The drawings are sometimes (not always) reworked in pens or through digital processing to make them clearer. They also form the basis for more considered work in printmaking.
