Papercut Screen Stencils

5 Mar
A vivid cyan overprinted onto a rich purple.

Inspired By Sarah Hopkins.

Today was Day 1 of Sarah Hopkins’ two-day course in paper stencil screenprint technique that I’ve got a place on. I’m using a photograph (by Melvyn Williams) from my recent Waun Wen artist residency as the basis of the image, but as I develop the layers of colour it will probably move quite a long way from the original, below. More information about courses at Swansea Print Workshop here.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks.

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artefacts 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.

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