I’m constantly drawing in sketchbooks and they largely never get seen. 

A few years ago a gallery rang me on a Monday and asked me if I wanted to do a show that Friday, so naturally I agreed and cut up all of my sketchbooks over the previous few years and exhibited them. I’m thinking of doing the same again soon, watch this space for more info.

Here is a recently finished 3-layered artwork. 

Electrical tape on three layers of glass, which are each encased in clear resin and then backed with either white paper or paint. Then all three layers are framed within one frame.

More coming soon.
