Down on Anne’s Farm
Down on Anne’s farm you will find Bobby, Theo, Berger and Malarkey! Bobby the goat is a cheeky little fellow with plenty of personality and Theo (nicknamed Thuggy) is a Shetland pony with attitude! The two cockerels - Berger and Malarkey can be seen strutting around the farmyard but beware, do not get too close to Malarkey for fear he may fly at you! Hence his name - now none of your Malarkey Mr Cockerel! Amongst her many pets Anne also re-homes rescue donkeys and ponies.

My latest piece features Mickey the retired seaside donkey, not a lot is known about Mickey except that he worked at the seaside for many years. Anne thinks that he and his chum Paddy probably originate from Ireland. Mickey is about 40 years old and is now enjoying a happy retirement on Anne’s farm.

Over the past few months I have loved getting to know the animals on Anne’s farm, and hope that my drawings have captured some of the spirit and personality of these wonderful creatures. Thanks to Anne for making this project happen.

Collage
The collages are made up of mono prints and layered backgrounds which are created using fragments of recycled artwork. I enjoy experimenting with layering effects, and aim to create a sense of the mysterious by building up images that reveal traces of something hidden beneath the surface.

Mono Prints
These prints are inspired by my original drawings. I make a simplified line drawing from the more detailed original drawing and then create a mono print using the new image. For example the mono print Midnight Run is based on my drawing Moon Dash.

Inspiration

Much inspiration is derived from the ancient cave paintings made by Upper Palaeolithic man. No art is more enigmatic than these and I find it fascinating to realise that these crude, yet compelling depictions of animals hold the secrets of an ancient civilisation, leaving us only traces of a lost world. For although we know the dates of many of the images, and even some of the ingredients of the paints that were used, we seem to be no closer to discovering, what prompted ancient man to produce them, nor what these images meant to him.

These powerful portrayals evoke a spiritual quality but whether he saw animals as divine entities, magical beings or simply beautiful creatures that he was compelled to reproduce we will never fully understand. These images remain shrouded in mystery and it is this that gives me my greatest inspiration.
