In 2014 I was gifted one of those expensive hand made artists books by a very special friend. In the past, attempts to fill such books with 'wonderful' drawings have failed and I have cheated and always torn out pages that did not live up to my expectations. I decided that this time I would not rip any pages out and actually fill the book over the next few years if not sooner. So here are the first 9 pages -the good, the not so good or bad depending on who is looking.
In Memory of Val
I am an artist & printmaker. I live in the Grampians region Victoria, Australia. My art, in particular printmaking is a key focus in my life and sustains me through many difficult days and nights due to a condition known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, see my website www.crps247.com. I believe art nourishes the soul and enriches our lives, something that material wealth fails to do.
