‘It started with a kiss’

I’ve had a few requests for a linoprint representing a mother with child. Here she is


‘The look of love’

There’s always a hint of ‘Emily’ in my lino cuts. Always. This one came to me after a period of creative funk which can be a frightening concept when everything has been flowing like a river for so long.

I had been drawing comfy chairs while in the midsts of the funk, it was all I could come up with. Mid century chairs, with buttons, velvet or Featherstone-style.

Then, she came. With a hot beverage – a blue chair, her towel slipped. The ‘Emily element’ was added.

Let’s be still

Missing the beach already, and Autumn has only just arrived. The mornings are a little cooler – and any chance of feeling sleepily warm in the sun has quickly dissipated.

Sun on skin, soothing salt water, velvet sand, warm Summer breeze. Is it the change of seasons that have us missing watermelon, long hot days, sunscreen smells and permission to do not a lot? I think so.

Come back Summer, I miss you!

Festive feels

Whipping up a batch of Christmas cards. I thought of the part I hand over to another more patient, mature member of my family. It’s the lights, that predictable and most likely avoidable tangle of lights.

I bring you my Christmas print.

I carved this gal, then took her to the studio. She chomped up my ‘good’ brayer – when I inked her up. Dammit!

Banging brights or warm whites.
