A selection of artists from Crossing Borders have been invited into unexpected workplaces in Peebles: Castle Warehouse, Grandison's Plasterworks; Renwick and Weir joiners and Go Ape amongst others. For me, it's Nomad Beat, the charity-run music school. We've to find inspiration in these venues and use it to make new artworks. With a ceramicist, a jeweller and a couple of textile workers as well as painters, the resulting exhibition in the Tweeddale Gallery in early 2015, should be worth a look. We're pleased to have support from Scottish Borders Museums and Galleries services and from Peebles Creative Place.

Holiday job

I've been away for a week and now Nomad Beat is on holiday, so it's good thinking time. Still exploring the notion of rhythm. Even when it's quiet, there's loads of visual rhythm:




I'm also pondering whether there's such a thing as visual rhyme - not a strict repetition, but an echo...





Some of the shapes lend themselves to print methods and will help provide unity within and between paintings. Watch out for rows of dots appearing in my work!




You've seen this photo before but I can't see how to delete it. Any ideas?
