I have chosen these images to follow on from my introduction when I told you that I believe that looking is the key to finding inspiration for art work. I seem to see texture, marks and landscapes in all manner of objects and these leap out at me as I walk. Above you can see bark, sand, a bollard, stone and the side of a boat but they all speak to me in terms of something else. These are all photographs but I can see any of them being translated into work on paper or fabric although I also like them just as they are! Try looking more closely at things as you go about your daily life – once you get the hang of it, it’s amazing what is out there!
