Having recently returned from the Camino de Santiago, The Farmhouse at the Callanish Stones Visitor Centre, Isle of Lewis is booked for the whole of May and a joint exhibition will take place with Jane Harlington of the Blue Pig Studio. The exhibition will be focused on the theme of undertaking a journey – let’s face it we have many journeys during our lives. There will also be a variety of workshops taking place throughout the duration of the exhibition where you can come along and try out new techniques. So watch this space!
I’m currently working on a few pieces, one of which is my “journey book” from my first Camino in 2013 and will cover the 44 days of my travels, on foot, during that time. The journey book will be available for viewing during the exhibition. I’m also developing some photographic prints, artwork and cards based on my walks in 2013 and 2015.
Here is just one of the items i’ve been working on – a lino cut multi-media piece called “Lauburu” The lauburu is the symbol of the Basque country and is seen frequently throughout the the first part of the 500 mile walk.
