Just been to see the Hockney Exhibition, huge paintings of the Wolds, not all to my taste, but I'm looking forward to what he does with the iPad paintings of USA. I think his style and the grandeur of the scenery will work well.
I am a textile artist. My inspiration is born of my love of the landscape. My work is driven by my concern about how I see humankind using the earth's resources with seemingly little regard for who comes next. We seem to have lost our sense of living with nature, of being part of it, we have lost our reverence for nature; we have become detached. The work is intended to make us more aware of our presence, it does not offer answers.
