New Prints! March 22, 2016 16:44

                 

                       

I've been working away on a lot of things in the background for the past few weeks. My favourite of these has been my new prints, "Winter" and "Winter Frost". My work has involved a lot a geometrics recently, so I wanted something a little more illustrative. These prints began with a series of drawings of shapes; the inspiration coming from mid century poster art, the weaves of Tadek Beutlich, work that I have already produced, and a notion of what I'd like to put up on my wall. I then began the process of scaling, arranging and editing the selection of drawings I had made to produce the piece you see here.

These are the largest giclee prints I produce - A2 in size, which is new to me and feels nicely substantial. I use the same 100% cotton archival fine art paper as I do for all my prints - the quality is beautiful. Both these prints are available in my NotOnTheHighStreet and Etsy stores. Enjoy!

 

 


Dates for your diary! November 02, 2015 16:31

So the Christmas Fair season is upon us, and I'm going to be taking part in three of the best that Nottingham has to offer! I'm really looking forward to them - the festive atmosphere, the opportunity for meeting so many people, and to a bit of christmas shopping myself!

I'll be selling my prints and fabric accessories, with new designs and products added to my range. Alongside these I will also be selling "show specials" such as greeting cards and fabrics that are only available at these events. 

I'll be showing at;

It's about time . . . October 15, 2015 19:52

So I finally, FINALLY have a website of my own! It's been a long time coming, and I'll be the first to admit that it's a pretty simple one. Partly by necessity, partly by choice. I'm not a technically-blessed individual, so even this is a pretty major triumph for me.

I love to make art. More than anything I enjoy getting my pencils and paints out and sitting quietly at my desk producing new work.

However, I'm very excited by my new site so that I can show some of the things I have been working on lately, and so that people can contact me. I may write the occasional blog post too.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you like what you see!
