Apologies for the quality of the photos, but was against the clock a bit to finish these all for them to go off to be displayed / sold ( hopefully) at BABE book Fair, taking place in Bristol , this Saturday and Sunday.

If you love hand made books and quirky unique publications then this is the place to go for a bit of retail therapy!

The photos above are a bit random, I will gather some better ones, in more detail, asap and pop them on here under the making section.

Thanks for Looking!

New Work! Yay!

Sunday afternooning

Screen Printing on Fabric, and mono printing using a small etching press

DSCF2960

Simple Screen printing using paper stencil to make a repeat pattern

Used wiping, cotton buds, and plant material, and taking a second print so sometimes got a positive and negative, when using things like plant bits.

 

I was invited to attend a little gathering at the Print co operative I recently joined, to meet with some of the other new members. Tea ,chatting and a bit of print making, jolly good Sunday afternoon I think !

Christmas Gift Fair

Great oak hall

Had a great opportunity recently to take part with some other lovely exhibitors from the Bristol area in a fair at Westonbirt Arboretum , in the lovely Oak Hall there, we ( me and Elaine Knight on our table)  had our stall selling prints and framed work and when the sunshine came out so did the people to buy things!

I hope to soon put some of the Prints and Photos I was selling here, on my etsy shop!

Art Car Boot Sale 19th July

I am taking part in an Art car boot sale , at Old Sodbury near Bristol, on the 19th of  July from 10.30.

It will be the same set up as a normal car boot, but with all the stall holders being artists and sellers of art, and the emphasis being on grabbing a bargain!

So if you are in the area come along and have a rummage through our boots!

suitcase full of goodies

Final Print Images

These are the three final prints I put up in the  my degree show

these are just printed cleanly without too much added.

 I shall upload images of the slightly different versions, and hopefully with links to my etsy shop where you can purchase your very own copy!  Soooon!
