girls and mountainsSome examples of my recent artworks, with a few older pieces thrown in. Until 2010 I was a practising visual artist and also a teacher and workshop leader. Then I became a full time writer. Now I have an iPad Pro and an Apple pencil my visual creativity has been opened up again (without having to strew art materials all over the work surface!) I’m now combining my visual art with my words. My first project is a Pecha Kucha style poetry commission which I’ll be performing in March. It gave me the opportunity to look through my vast files of visual material and come up with some new images. In September 2018, Wild Pressed Books will be publishing a full-colour book of my new poems and paintings on the theme of the stages of a woman’s life.
