The project I am working on with Vervey is called 'Layers'. Most of my work has some sort of layers anyway, but I was finding it difficult to get off the ground. A friend had given me a little sketch book [above] so I thought I would start filling it with ideas to get me started. I ended up filling the whole book of 60 pages [7.5x10cm about ATC size] and it is now a small fat book. I filled the book in 2008 but the project is still ongoing and our first exhibition of the finished art work is in March.
