Slim pickings at the Verdin Park boot sale. Hazel got a small wooden cabinet to pile ontop of her other small wooden cabinets, a silver ring, a silver spoon that's probably not silver, and her bargain of the day - a victorian skirt lifter gadget she's been after for many years and finally found one! Muggins bought a used rubber stamp and type thingy which doesnt work - all the ink had dried up! Doh! Bumped into our old neighbour Rob with his kids that have all grown up - scary - they were tiny last time we saw them.
A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a collector of all sorts , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
