New print and Workshop


Just a quick entry today, firstly to mention my first ArtisOn workshop of 2012, which will be running this Sunday; Jewellery - Inspired by Vintage. It's going to be a great day full of inspiring projects and tips (featuring buttons of course), and there are a few places left, so if you're in the mood to do something fun and creative this weekend, click here for more info.

I've just finished another linocut! I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of it, and am pretty pleased with this one. This was inspired by an old photo I took of Jervaulx Abbey:

Thats all, have a great weekend!

Hello there,

I've just tested a new linocut and am pretty pleased with it, so thought I'd show you:

This print (of Fishers Hall in Hackfall) has not been printed on a press, but has instead been painstakingly burnished by me. As a result the colours are not as solid as they might be from a press, but I'm simply not strong enough!

Last week I made this print of Saltburn Pier:

Watch this space for more new prints in the coming weeks...

In other news, I am pleased to say that I will be taking part in the North Yorkshire Open Studios this year. The event runs over two weekends in June, and I will be displaying my work, along with fellow artists Charlotte Morrison (ceramics), Josie Beszant (mixed media) and Ian Scott Massie (painting/printmaking) at ArtisOn. For more information and to see the other artists taking part, visit the North Yorkshire Open Studios site.

Have a great weekend,
