Fossils

These sea lily fossil drawings were inspired by the Radnorshire Museum’s fossil collection in Llandrindod Wells, Powys. They became part of my solo exhibition there ‘Fossils & Co’ . The graptolite is from my own collection found in Lower Llanwaur Quarry on a fossil group field trip in Llandrindod Wells.


Installation during my solo show at the museum called ‘Millenia – frieze fragments’. It is a collage of combined fossil rubbings I produced from my collection and the museums.
