Norma Foulds Lancashire, United Kingdom
I am an artist maker, finder of things. I love to draw and use print. Sharing my knowledge and skills is an adventure, I am always learning from the people I work with and it is always amazing when people find they can achieve great things given the opportunity .
My practice is fluid, but rooted in drawing. Drawing is always the thing people say they cant do , yet do on a daily basis without realising , every time they pick up a pen or pencil to write their name , a mark is created. I hope, with the people I meet, to encourage them to recognise the visual qualities in the marks they make and celebrate in the joy of creating work. I like to make things from the ordinary , to show people that art is all around and within the very essence of what we do. For the past three years I have taken a daily task and published the work in a daily blog. https://wordpress.com/view/normafoulds.com
This year I taking a studio space in a shared facility at Higherford Mill, Barrowford. I welcome visits , but I would recommend contacting me prior to a visit in case I am not there.

The project was initiated by Fable Arts with Ludus Dance. Local young people looked at Alzheimer's , working with a unit in a hospital they met and talked with patients , and devised a performance piece . I was asked to work with the group to develop costumes .
