Two of my Souniemi (The Finnish House) prints have been featured in issue 22 of The Hand Magazine, a magazine for reproduction-based art. Back issues can be bought on the magazine website https://thehandmagazine.net/
I received word that the sketchbook I worked on for the Brooklyn Art Library was one of only a few hundred books that went to a special exhibition at The University of South Carolina in Spartanburg, SC, USA.
My book was in their NEW Bookmobile on the campus for all the students to enjoy, getting the public engaged with art practice can only be a good thing and I am happy to be a part of it.
I will be exhibiting in the Affordable Print Exhibition at Ocean Studios, The Factory Cooperage, Royal William Yard, Plymouth UK, from 14th August to 2nd September 2018.
All prints will be for sale in the Column Bakehouse Cafe within Ocean Studios, and the exhibition will showcase the work of local/regional artists.
Maternity leave is over and I am back in the printroom!
I also have work in group exhibition A Drawing Show in Project Space 1 at Plymouth College of Art, to coincide with Sketch 2017, Rabley Drawing Centre's open submission exhibition of artists' sketchbooks. Private view Thursday 28th September 6-8pm. Images to follow..
I am taking a short break from making and exhibiting as our baby is due in two weeks. But I will be back to making work once we have figured out what to do with a baby!
My latest woodcut titled; "But has he nine as beautiful tails as the late Mr Fox?" "Oh no," said the cat, "he has only one." is being exhibited at Rye Rye Creative Centre in East Sussex until 15th July.
Taking a small break from screen printing to work on a new woodcut, gives me a chance to break in the new dabber I bought in for the workshop.
My exhibition at Exeter Phoenix is up! The curator did a fantastic job, the work looks great, relieved it's all up, I discovered that preparing a show whilst pregnant is not easy.
The postcards for my show at Exeter Phoenix have arrived, very happy with the quality, plus I've opened my Easter egg early, yummy!
It's official, the paperwork came through yesterday about my exhibition at Exeter Phoenix next April. I have new work planned for it which will combine screen printing with drawing and painting, can't wait to make it.
There will be audio at the show of me discussing the work being exhibited, all work is also for sale, do pop in!
