DIY Viewfinder “Ls” made from mat board

These are some L-shaped viewfinders I have cut from mat board. The largest measures 1m along the longest edge. I cut the largest one first and then cut the smaller ones from the centre piece that was left. I can see I will use these a lot for deciding the best framing shape/size for the work. Up to now I’ve waited until I’m at the framers to make the decision. Having these available to me in the studio all the time means I can lay them out, take a photo, try a different shape, take a photo, and so on. Then I can choose the one I like best.

Hello world!

My first post on my first website as an artist! I’m feeling very positive about my art at present as we have just built a new house in which I have quite a large space to create and I have built some design “walls” which I can pin into, or tape things to for review or to work on, which fit nicely in that room. Three friends and I formed a small group called MELD aimed at exhibiting our work and we are celebrating our first year together this month. Over the last few weeks we have all been working together on our CV’s, Biographies, Artists Statements and a gallery application. A while back I created a blog for that group which we all contribute to. I have started creating this website to promote my own art. And I have even had some time to work on some art pieces as well. It’s all hugely exciting 🙂 !!
