Project Description

paper.paint.print

As a graphic designer I have spent most of my working life designing on a computer but about 10 years ago I decided to revisit the mediums I had enjoyed at art college. After enrolling on a screenprinting course in Cardiff I soon realised that I could set myself up at home and now work from the spare room producing screenprinted cards and prints. I have also expanded into other mediums including cyanotype printing, lino printing and woodblock printing.

My work is mainly influenced by nature and pattern. The flowers and leaves I use for the cyanotypes come from my garden and the hedgerows where I live. My screenprint designs are a mixture of birds, animals, patterns and plants and are printed using acrylic paint enabling me to get bright, bold colours with the occasional touch of gold and bronze. 

I handprint on good quality paper; each print is an original work of art in its own right and the screenprints are usually part of a numbered, limited edition. I also produce a range of digitally printed cards, some featuring my handprinted designs, but others have been digitally drawn using software packages such as Photoshop, Illustrator and Procreate.
