helen nodding

These drawings celebrate seemingly unremarkable urban manifestations, for example the moss growing in front of a commission flat or an elm sapling that has taken root in a crack in the concrete.  However, each image details a discovery that held a poetic resonance as it was encountered on a walk across the city.  Unless otherwise stated the drawings are created using pen and ink on drafting paper.
