Wendi May New
Striving to do more work that looks at our local natural history and also traditional customs. I use a range of materials, some naturally sourced myself, including oak gall and walnut inks. I love to explore the feel of a place and then use crayon, inks and old techniques to create a narrative. I often echo the social history, reflecting on old trades and also superstitions. Alongside these pieces I also create imagery that is so very different; exceptionally bright, intense colours and a resonance of subculture. It has led me to look at Folklore with a modern slant.
