Artwork for Linzi Morgan Whitting
'Into the Fire'
'Hope & Grace'
'Lazy Sunday Afternoon'
'Conversations with Love'
I keep sketch books and draw from my immediate surroundings and the landscape, from which I paint, make prints and poems and songs. Some poetry has started to become etched into the coil pots I make, my clay sculptures are infused with my love of myth my life-long dream to be able to take flight.
Sharing and facilitating arts experiences has enriched my life as a maker, I have a passion for drawing and run drawing classes. We all have the ability to draw and mark making is an ancient practice that we can all share.
I am an Artist/Maker-my practice is evolving and includes being an arts facilitator.
I believe shared arts experiences make a real and lasting difference, not only for those who are involved in sharing the making, but also in the wider community. I run regular local drawing classes in Presteigne, 'Drawntogether', I teach painting and other mediums such a printing & I am happy to discuss running workshops or arranging private tuition for G.C.S.E or A Level or adult learners.
