A pink ink sketch self portrait 

Hello! Thanks so much if you are still here. Still sketching, most days. But erratic technology = erratic posting. 

Had a quiet half hour to roughy sketch a self portrait in pink ink. I wear glasses now. I guess this is growing older…

Playing with the WordPress app on the phone. Hopefully be more regular in posting, shortly!

Hope you’re doing well,  whereever you are xx

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
