A few new friends to go with my 'Curves' print (bottom left) !
 
 I'm working on ideas for a new large piece for the RA show next year.
With the new submissions opening on Jan 6th there's not much time.......
Do I go for something really simple or shall I try something a little
more intricate with multiple layers and colours???!!!

'Folded', my work selected for this summers exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art, London

 

The Print Rooms at the RA summer exhibition.
I've always felt the Rooms which house the fine art prints are the best in the show. This year I've reserved "Best in Show" for Grayson Perry - but the Print Rooms - hung by Anne Desmet RA - are as awesome as always. It's impossible to get bored and very easy to spend hours as there's just so much good art to look at.    (written by Katherine Tyrrell)

Getting ideas ready for new works

 

coloured pencil sketches.
Some of my latest ideas for new work. I can't wait to take these further and see how they work as screenprints.

 
I have now finished the artwork ready to put onto the silkscreens. All of the work has been drawn freehand using chinagraph pencils on film. Most of the prints will be around 8-10 colours, so may take me a while to finish them all.....roll on my own studio!

Also last month....- MID CENTURY MODERN

alongside Orla Kiely and Jasper Conran:

http://www.achica.com/MidCenturyModern

Mid-Century Modern

                     Epitomised by the 'soft modernism' of Scandinavian furniture and ceramics to the sleek, clean lines of the Bauhaus movement of German modernism, the Mid-Century Modern period is without doubt one of the most exciting periods of design history, spanning the late 1940s right through the 1970s. This era produced a wealth of ground-breaking designers, including Alvar Aalto, Charles and Ray Eames, Robin and Lucienne Day, and Arne Jacobsen. Their work epitomised the Mid-Century Modern ethos of objects that were not only well designed but highly functional. This special ACHICA collection is influenced by the classic period of design history that celebrates a strong geometric, a clean line and  an aesthetic that is timeless and still highly desirable today.
