These images are part of a picture-story. The work is inspired by 1950's circus photography. I wanted to capture the magic that comes into play when the lights dim over the audience and the performers step out into the spotlight. I also wanted to capture the tension that is created between the performer (in this case, the 'trapeze' artist) and the watchers. The pounding heart as we wait and hope the trapeze artist makes it safely back to the swing!

'Memory' drawings of a wraith-like lady I caught a glimpse of recently, when passing by Princes Park, Liverpool. The elongated shape, the very stooped shoulders- she was a very striking figure. Tried to capture something of that, not my prettiest drawings alas.

Odd thing is that when we (I use the Royal 'we' in the liberal sense) think about 'Wuthering Heights', we..or I, tend to think about Cathy and Heathcliffe mainly. And although those two passionate characters are indeed the figurative spine of Bronte's story- there are a lot of other people to draw!
