Megan Dowsett is a creative consultant working in museums, galleries and the arts, an illustrator who is finding her voice through personal and local projects, and a parent to two young beings who can't help but influence her creative journey.

Through the name Norris and the Flamingo, she shares the sense of adventure that runs through all of life, wherever we are on our journey. A sense of imagination, of possibility and discovery, for children and adults alike.

Wendy Horler

IMG_8621Wendy and I have been meeting for years to encourage, inspire, critique and support our creative journeys. We both strive (and lets be honest, often struggle) to discipline ourselves into more regular drawing habits, but Wendy can't long resist returning to three dimensions.

She's absorbed by the things she collects from her garden, but lately she's been exploring papier mache using toilet paper. Well, you know my love of toilet roll tubes ... perhaps it was predictable that I'd be fascinated by her toilet roll adventures!

IMG_8632She always seems to come up with magical abstract shapes. I love the different shades of one colour and the simple structures built by putting together. There's something very soothing about the simple shapes from the textured material. IMG_8622
And each structure is reminiscent of something different - a ship, twigs and leaves ... any thoughts?!
