Dipsy Dragon featured artist until 16th May is local print maker and artist, Kiran Sharma
KK Sharma KK Sharma is an artist and printmaker based in North Wales. She trained at Byam Shaw School of Art, London and Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. She now exhibits regularly with Aberystwyth Printmakers. http://www.aberystwythprintmakers.org.uk
The sheep drawings were initially inspired by Henry Moore’s Sheep Sketch Book. During the first lockdown she sketched sheep and lambs in the fields surrounding Dyffryn Ardudwy. Blue Lamb, Behold the Lamb (pictured here), Easter Lamb as well as Snipe 2 were all made especially for this display at Dipsy Draig. They were made painfully slowly in the growing hope and expectation that its doors would be open in the spring!

Cafodd ei hysbrydoli gan lyfr Henry Moore, Sheep Sketchbook. Yn ystod y cyfnod clo cyntaf roedd hi’n creu brasluniau o ddefaid ac wyn yn y caeau ger Dyffryn Ardudwy. Mi wnaeth hi Blue Lamb (yn y llun yma), Easter Lamb, Behold the Lamb and Snipe 2 yn arbennig ar gyfer yr arddangosfa hon yn Dispy Draig. Roedd hi’n gweithio’n araf. Roedd hi’n edrych ymlaen at y gwanwyn pan fydd siopau’n ailagor. Gobeithio!
