I really enjoyed this interview with Nastasia of The LondonY. Effectively someone else asking many of the questions I should ask of myself and causing me to have a good look at what’s going on in my art, life and music.

What I do, and why,

and how.

Don’t know about ‘upcoming’, but wherever I’m at, I’m happy here for now : )

Blanche Ellis talks art, folk and how to portray people on the train without getting noticed.

Portraits for ‘Faces on The Hill’

art, Camden, drawing, Exhibition, Illustration, Painting, portrait, press

I’ve just become part of a lovely little project in Primrose Hill where people in the community are drawing and photographing each other. There will be an exhibition at the community centre and a book of images and interviews published and called…

‘Faces on The Hill’.

It’s such a lovely idea and I’ve just finished my first portrait which is of the lovely Rachel Poulton who took my photograph.

Rachel - Photographer copyThe exhibition is on May 31st I have on my list to draw, a local lawyer, an art curator and a retired ballet dancer amongst others so I think this is going to be a really fun project !

more to come……

After a while away I am back around Camden and making some locally based work.

I’ll may soon be back on the Camden Market proper again but for now I’ll be sitting on the high-street bridge over the lock in Camden on weekends and other days working on drawings and selling my newest work, a departure from the abstract and figurative focus.

These two are drawn from the same position on the bridge, click on them to see the full pictures –

If you would like prints or to ask about the originals please email me. I am also able to frame my work, please inquire.
