Experiments

3 Collages of Doreen Small’s photos of her experiments.

“I love to experiment: to ‘play’ with different materials and tools. I work quickly, with little initial planning and even less finessing.

Attending the 2018 CLAS Festival in Yukimi Annand’s class was a game changer for me, as were GLA workshops with Simon Sonsoni and Rachel Yallop. I find inspiration in the work of others eg Denise Lach and calligraphy exhibitions such as those at Snape Maltings.

For many years, I have kept a notebook of quotations, poems, and thoughts. I use these, combining them with my experiments and mental images. I convince myself, when these do not work, that there is no such thing as failure: I always learn and enjoy.”
