This book is a colorful and evocative record of my times on Flat Holm – the island where my father was born in 1889. It contains photographs, drawings, watercolours, prints and writings that were made on the island and in the studio, creating a ‘sense of place’. The island is only half a mile in diameter; it is flat, desolate and windswept. Working there presented challenges from the weather and the breeding lesser black-backed gulls. The work is a culmination of a year’s research and forms a part of my submission for the MA in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking that I have been studying for the last three years. It accompanies two exhibitions in Bristol and Cardiff.
