This year offers a new start to the closer study of local bird life using my telescope. I use sketches, mono prints and acrylic paints to help me adopt a freer interpretation of what I see. The resulting images are used to build up panels in colourful Bullseye fusing glass. I intend to experiment with the smaller glass pieces to create the tide lines and marshes where the bird feed.
Since qualifying for an Applied Arts degree, I have continued to exhibit at either Art in the Garden shows or gallery exhibitions. Slender panels are set in Lakeland stone and are appropriate as a patio or flowerbed feature. Gallery panels are mounted in a matching frame and hang where appropriate.
