Playing with a creative challenge to re-wild my life during Sept 2013

Already loving the challenge of getting out daily for 30 minutes into the ‘wild’…

Day 1 of the challenge – supporting Tim Ridley lead his final art walk on Epsom & Ashtead Common, Epsom, Surrey http://artist-walks-epsom.blogspot.com/Image

Here’s 2 links to my rubbings made on a tree at the highest point of the common

For me this means into nature that surrounds me in the city of Ol’ London town.

The Re-wilding challenge comes from the awesome folk @ We Are Wilderness

Keep your eyes and ears peeled for some wild images coming from this blog in the next 28 days – gosh who knows what wild and mysterious creatures and features I will discover in my urban field trips…

More later…

I am off to look at the stars…

Art Walks – creatively playing in nature with Tim Ridley

It’s pleasure to be supporting Tim Ridley to creative and reach to new and curious audiences as part of his Artist in Residency on Epsom & Ashtead Common, Epsom, Surrey, UK.

The surprise pleasure is how inspired I have been personally to get back into new and freeing ways of drawing…

I joined in on the 1st Art Walk 23rd June 2013 –  see my drawings from that day. http://annabsexton.tumblr.com/post/53697392676/beautiful-memories-from-tim-ridley-art-walk

This then led me onto more playing around back at my studio with stencils, graphite, paper and spray mount… http://annabsexton.tumblr.com/post/53868999484/whats-on-the-back-negativespace-newcollage

Tim has secured funding from Arts Council England to enable him to design and lead 3 Art Walks.

The last one is on 1st September 2013 & it’s FREE to join in – so it’s a no brainer to get your walking boots on, pack a picnic and get thee to the muster point on Epsom Common for 11.30am
