My pointillist technique was originally the result of attempting to emulate old, hand-tinted photographs.  It involves using drawing pens to produce textures consisting of thousands of tiny dots, with colour then applied as a wash.

This labourious technique has another parallel with old photographs: the slow progression of the drawings is akin to seeing the image appear gradually in the developer tray, so that over time, there is an opportunity to grasp some kind of narrative inherent to the images - suggested but hopefully never defined.

Flown is a group of 3 artists drawn together by a passion for contemporary craft and the handmade.  Beneath the Surface draws together individual practices producing an exhibition with an undercurrent of the unseen.

The 19 members of the well established TX Creative Textile Group meet on 9 Saturdays during the year at Frodsham Methodist Church led by Ann Goddard & Wendy Rudd.

We began the year with a visit to the Indian Artefacts Centre at Four Oaks Garden Centre near Jodrell Bank, for a day of sketching, photographing and writing.

During the year we have enjoyed workshops with Liz Evans, Cas Holmes, Michael Brennan - wood and Jan Beaney.

The exhibition represents work developed from sketchbooks, discussions and exploration.
