Womb Creatures

As a child struck in a schoolroom in the dead of the afternoon heat, I often found refuge in letting my pens run amok. Many a happy hours were spent in the world of fanciful beings and patterns with which I adorned my schoolbooks.

This affliction for placing my marks upon mark has become a corner stone of the way I work. Creatures of the Womb is a series of images created using found Victorian obstetrical instrumental drawings and prints . These were altered through hand drawn marks reminiscent of my habit of doodling on notebooks in school.

 

The scanned images were brought to life through collage and repetition on a digital medium to give birth to these creatures and patterns.
