All or Nothing

Sometimes everything happens at once, actually, this happens very often as an artist.. there is 0 work for months, then it’s all at the same time, not only it is Dinewfr, and some work in Margo’s Vintage, but it’s also the Swansea Print Workshop Christmas Exhibition, this is opening on Saturday with tea, coffee and cakes all day from 10.30-4.30 pm! …and then is open then until the 27th of November.

Included are some of our postcards and larger bird screenprints that were printed in the summer with workshops by Kelly Stewart. That big grey Heron is mine..I know it’s a screenprint not a collagraph..shock horror!

There are many, MANY prints, cards, christmas cards and other gifts.

I am very pleased to be exhibiting with the National Trust this Christmas with some fabulous artists! The grounds of Dinefwr are amazing, spectacular vistas around every corner and deers and cattle a plenty! The grounds are just behind the beautiful multi-coloured town of Llandeilo, which has great antique shops, galleries and independent shops and eateries!

My deer print, The fox nest and a badger in the garden shall all be there to welcome you!

PPSSTT! this exhibition is open for Dinefwr’s Christmas Fair from 22-44th October and shall be open to the public thereafter, although there is , as stated an official opening on the 30th!

Swansea Open

The Swansea Open returned last year, it’s always held at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea, it’s Swansea’s main gallery and has had a tradition of holding an Open Competition for many years, the gallery re-opened last year after being closed for several years for refurbishment. This year I submitted two works-the maximum allowed and they both got it! I was amazed actually, as I almost didn’t submit one of them!

My ‘Badger in the Garden’ and ‘Numbat Antics’ prints shall be on show, most works are for sale, the show opens on Saturday-Sir Peter Blake is opening the show…and his own of collages and illustrations is opening at the same time, so that’s really exciting!

It runs from the 8th to the 2nd of February  from this year… into next year!

Inktober Week Three

I seem to be a day behind almost every day, but I guess at least I’m getting a few things done!  There is lots of testing and experimentation going on with me at the moment, especially with all of these tiny prints from erasers!

and I quite liked this wee composition of the print and the block or eraser from WH Smith (even though it was the first print and done very quickly so not the best)..but…you can even still see the writing of ‘WH Smith’, I didn’t bother to get it off! Also I think really.. it needs re-doing, re-cutting, i’m not 100% happy with it!

Most of these works are towards an exhibition soon in Brecon..if I can manage to register them~!

You can find further info about them on my facebook page.
