Well it has been a very exciting time over the last few weeks there has been so much going on, both good and bad! but that’s life!
I am very lucky to be exhibiting at the Satrang Art Gallery in Islamabad alongside Zaira Zaka, Rose Davies, Hannah Lawson, and the amazing Atif Khan! What a show indeed! There shall be regular updates about this exhibition on my facebook page here!
Recently I sent some work to America as part of a project instigated by Rose Davies, It was sent to the lovely Wingtip Press in Boise, Idaho, whom have in turn taken it along with them to the Rocky Mountain Printmaking Alliance Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. The conference is on now and is showcasing the joint portfolio of three colour separation monotype prints- including one of my badgers! The portfolio does not only contain prints just from Swansea! Oh no! There are also those created by members of Wingtip Press as part of a residency Rose did there earlier this year. How Fab! You can see a wee pic on my facebook site! There were a few wonderful Swansea artists taking part, hopefully more collaborations in the future!
Also, today I was lucky to have attended a wonderful workshop with the renowned printmaker Andrew Baldwin. It was a great day and I have much experimental etching to do! I am working on several ideas at the moment for some possibly huge etchings-well A3 size that’s huge for me considering I am NOT an etcher!! I have much to do and they have to be finished rather soon for editioning, so I’d better get on with it next week! I shall post some results soon! Exciting times!

Also at the workshop we have our annual exhibition opening on tuesday evening at 6.30pm and it runs until the 20th of December.
Yesterday I went to the opening of the Chrstmas Show in the Ceri Richards Gallery at the Taliesin. very lovely it was too, with a fair few printmakers represented including the fabulous Rose Davies!
On Friday becase I am the Drawn to Print technician, I get to assist on workshops, sometimes I get to join in a little bit and I had the chance to draw some moss in a fanastical way on Friday in Fiona’s ‘Throwaway Remnants /Unconventional Landscapes’ workshop, it was very interesting! Drawing coming soon!
For now though, here’s recent scan of a sketch on my ipad! Work in progress!
