Six months in Essaouira, Morocco may have heightened my sense of colour – if such thing is possible. It’s hard to assess influences on work especially if working with abstracted images. I used a lot of bright Moroccan dried pigments to make paintings which are now slowly filtering back into the work I am making….images especially of buildings under construction, rooftops, alleyways, architecture. Currently though, most of my time is being taken up running participatory workshops with Double Elephant Print Workshop – especially with Recovery Devon, alongside adults experiencing poor mental health. More daily influences but they are all welcome.
