My Little Helper

Here’s a little time lapse video of Sparta Puss helping to paint a copy of a portrait of Frida Kahlo by the artist Nettsch (Annette Feldmann). She often helps. She’s very good at drinking the painting water; walking across the palette and leaving multi coloured footprints on the floor; chewing the end of the brush while I’m using it, and generally advising me on where I’m going wrong.

I have been copying a painting a week during the pandemic with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. Ed has helped keep a lot of people relatively sane by running this every Friday, and it’s free or a donation for those that can afford to. We’re up to around 70 paintings now from classics like van Gogh, Matisse and Monet to contemporary artists like Nettsch, Hockney and Basquiat.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left and to see the complete image.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

I'm an artist / printmaker / scribbler. I love drawing and all the geeky stuff associated with printmaking, working in a figurative style. I live in Wales with husband and demented cats. And my real name is Rose Davies :D
