Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind.
Louise Nevelson

I’m a big fan of found art and accidental drawings. I spotted these beauties in Stokes Croft, which is one of my favourite parts of Bristol for its sheer creative anarchy.

Oh how I wish I’d made these delicate drawings in glue.

I am an artist & purveyor of obsessive projects based in Hebden Bridge, England. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects - pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes - to make sculptures that deal with fragility, loss, repetition, obsession and time.

    this is an interesting find. maybe i should start looking for accidental drawings. i would not have guessed from the photos that this was the inner part of a door.
