    Debbie Lee is an internationally trained and collected artist. Having studied in London, Glasgow, Chicago and India she now keeps her studio on the coast of Dorset.

    I am rediscovering Dante’s Hell through scroll making. I have been researching how to translate Dante’s Inferno into a fold out artists book with a view to developing images into colour lithography. Supported by a bursary from a_n The Artists Information Company and Arts Council England. This is massive encouragement for me to continue to develop my work thanks to @anartistsinfo and @aceagrams for awarding me the time, space and money bursary.

    Escape on the back of Geryon

    “91    I settled down between those gruesome shoulders.
    I wished to say (my voice, though, would not come):
    ‘Yes. Please! Be sure you hold me very firm.’
    94    He, who in many an earlier ‘perhaps’
    had aided me, as soon as I got on,
    flinging his arms around me, hugged me tight,
    97    and said: ‘Go on, then, Geryon. Cast out!
    Wheel wide about to make a smooth descent.
    Think of the strange new burden on your back.”
