Pink Poodle Linocut


The other week, whilst showing my sister how to linocut, I made a simple Valentine’s card with a pink poodle on it (not much to do with Valentine’s I know!)

I have been working on a few projects over the last couple of weeks, which I am hoping to be able show you soon, one of which was a submission to the Secret 7″ project, fingers crossed!

Angie Lewin & Carry Akroyd Exhibition


From 3rd – 26th October printmakers Angie Lewin and Carry Akroyd had an exhibition of work at Cambridge Contemporary Art. I was fortunate to catch the exhibition before it closed, it consisted of large and small scale prints by both artists, the majority of which were inspired by nature. For me there were too many pieces that I liked to be able to list any highlights! Cambridge Contemporary Art is a gallery/shop which regularly stock original prints and artworks by printmakers.

I received a signed copy of her book in the post today! I also got feedback from Catherine: ‘I think this is a strong idea with a clear and memorable graphic. I like the way the designer has used colour to enhance the text and speak directly to the viewer.’ Read about the competition here.
