Exploring the Canons Estate and buildings of NLCS really inspired me. This is not a museum and the old building is incorporated into the school, housing classrooms and reception. I created layered drawings that echo a sense of new and old. My intention was to create work that has a real and tangible connection to the physical architecture. I took rubbings of architectural details of the old building and gardens. Being at this residency in Spring allowed me to visit at a time when the blossom was in full bloom and framing the buildings. I drew blossom and other plants found on the estate upon the rubbings creating a conversation in lines. I chose bright and neon colours to communicate the energy and sound of the school.
