>More drawings from my current project.  The first is done with pencil and ink and the second is done with every blue drawing implement I could find on my desk.



Some mussels from the beach.  Each has a catalogue number along side it for easy reference.


Over the last few weeks I’ve been given the chance to work on some personal work.  I decided to look into the act of cataloging and collecting along side trying to develop my interest in nature.

Over the course of seven days, I took the beautiful handmade quadrant pictured in the photograph above to the beach pictured in the photograph above, threw it, collected and catalogued everything which was in the 50cm squared space and now I am currently exploring drawing with these 106 items.

>Here is my piece which is currently on display in the Bradshaw Art Space in Duncan of Jordanstone.

This is the work I have spent the majority of my time on in the last few weeks and I am chuffed with the results.  The small book accompanying the lithography print is a catalogue of hand drawn cells and the colour on the print has been hand cut and applied.  The exhibition is running until the 19th March so you still have time to go down and have a look around.

A limited edition of 6 (only 4 left) and I’m selling these prints for £70 each.  Get in contact here or at if you would like one.


>An old drawing I found this morning.  I think it’s quite cute.

>Our current brief is based around the medical history of Dundee, scientific pioneers and all things medical.  After a quite intense look into the history of the Dundee Royal Infirmary and Lochee Hospital (which I’d never heard of in my whole life of living in Dundee – interesting to research!) I’ve settled on an other idea.  It revolves around cells and the beautiful natural patterns within.  Here are a few drawings from today and hopefully they will be part of a much more grand and ambitious idea.
