This comprised of two drawings being accepted : Pattern from a stick insect and Pattern from a stick insect 2.
Both these images were produced using pen and transfer ink on satin. Drawing is my primary means of enquiry. My work explores the cultural and artistic life within East Africa, focusing in particular on Lamu Island off the north Kenya coast. Since 1990, my work has been based upon a sense of place: that place being Lamu island off the north Kenya coast, where I set up a printmaking workshop for Kenyan Artists. Living and working in Nairobi and Lamu for three months most years since 1990 has had a profound effect on the way I approach my work. My ongoing aim is to look at my identity and personal response to this link, both historical and contemporary between the UK and Kenya. Pattern making is central to my imagery and I prefer to work on an intimate scale with small objects such as insects, shells, small plants and seedpods which can be drawn life size. Drawing within the format of a pattern helps me to understand and recognise how important nature is as a key to creativity.
