The 365 days project allowed me to reiterate what I believe important to encompassing Orkney’s sense of place.
PROJECT A drawing a day for 365 days. 1st March 2015 – 28th February 2016
365 days are drawings focused on Orkney landscape and drawn either in the studio or while walking in the landscape. Drawing everyday for a year allowed me to find new places of interest, and to revisit areas in Orkney that inspire my practice.
This project has taught me discipline and focus. It has allowed me to give priority to my artistic practice in a life that is full of other commitments.
I continue drawing regularly.
This project was kindly supported by Orkney Islands Council, HIE and Creative Scotland through the Arts and Crafts Awards Scheme.
