Carvings for PV-21 Carving Group

Joined a carving group, PV-21, this year. These are two of the images I have carved. The portrait was something I had only tried once  before so thought it would be interesting to see what would come of it.  I think I like the graphic nature of the final result. The pipe/strap image was quite a challenge with all of the layers, I like the pipes curling off into the distance.

Rubber Stamp Sheets

Here are the first two sheets of rubber I have had made from my original drawings and carvings.  This is one form of art that I did not anticipate falling in love with. But I find it so facinating, and challenging. It takes my drawings to a whole different level and can be used in so many ways. I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed drawig and carving them!

First Post!

Hello, this is my first ever attempt at having a blog. This is mostly a place where I will try to share a little bit of my art and other attempts at creativity.
I have always been fascinated with art, in many different forms. I remember going into a stationary store with my mother and just oohing and aahing  over the clean white paper that , in my mind , so much could be done with!  I feel most like myself when I am creating or drawing something.
