soft neutrals and blues on the studio wall.
I'm getting down to the last few in many editions which is quite sad. It's a shame when they disappear from my plan chest for good!

'Fence & Pen' and 'Enclosure'



One of my latest screenprints.
Fence & Pen
I have been preparing for an exhibition at the Biscuit Factory in June, and this will be on show there. This series of prints have taken quite a while to produce, being 11 and 12 colours each. I have enjoyed building up the layers of soft colours and textures.
These worked out nicer than I was expecting, it's difficult to see all the textural detail. Sometimes working with so many colours can lead to a piece of work I'm not entirely happy with, however I worked on these over several weeks and made sure they colours worked for me!
From editions of 20. 47 x 35cm, £195.00

In The Studio with Emma Lawrenson...

THE EDITION

Sarah from The Edition has featured my work and the process of screen-printing in a kind of A-Z in images and text, of how my work is made from start to finish. Her blog is written beautifully and she has an amazing eye for really beautiful finds, artists and independent stores. Have a look! 
I particularly like her features on Ed Kluz, Anne Davies and Laurent Moreau
