Across The Planet

12 Dec

annwyl KATHE


It’s lovely to see where artwork can get to when it leaves me and it’s released out in the wild. I did this mixed media piece, “Annwyl Käthe” – stamping, chine collé, stitching and hand written text – in an edition of 15 for the annual Leftovers print exchange organised by Wingtip Press in Idaho, USA. Part of Leftovers is an annual international touring exhibition and this has just featured in a show at the Wharepuke Gallery in New Zealand.



It looks gorgeous. Maybe someday I’ll get across the world for a visit. If you are a printmaker and want to get involved in Leftovers VIII, please click here.

When The Postman Knocked

13 Jul

My set

For a few years now, I’ve entered the Leftovers international miniature print exchange, organised by the lovely printmakers at Wingtip Press, Boise, Idaho, USA. Printmakers from all over the world send an edition of 14 tiny original prints, done on pieces of leftover paper, and in return twelve are selected at random and sent back, so we can build up our own print collections. I was so excited today when the postman knocked because there was a tough cardboard envelope from America with my 12 lovely little leftovers inside. They’re gorgeous, with etchings, linocuts, digital, screenprint and letterpress. I love them.

Here’s the one I sent over to the USA, a stitched and stamped piece with chine collé based on my hero, Käthe Kollwitz.


For a limited period I am putting a new drawing from my recent sketch books on my Artfinder gallery every day.  If you’d like to check them out, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

S’Up In May And June?

What am I up to?

I’m working through a load of art events that I’ve been preparing for ages.

I’ve done TRANSITION, a public art event on May 20th and 21st 2016 in Swansea’s Creative Bubble Artspace with the 15 Hundred Lives art collective.

And in the middle of all that, from June 17th, I will be exhibiting a large drawing as part of a group show in the ‘Divided By The Meltwater’ exhibition in Swansea’s Dynefor Centre.

Throughout September I will have a solo show at the fabulous Workers Gallery in Ynyshir, Rhondda, showing the work I am developing on the ancient ancestral stones of South Wales.

I am part of the “Leftovers VI” International Print exchange which is a touring group exhibition of miniature prints from international printmakers. It’s just been exhibited in Boise, Idaho , USA and is destined for Reno, Nevada USA in October. Moves are afoot to bring it to Wales after Reno – watch this space!

And finally I will be running short courses in printmaking at Swansea Print Workshop over the coming months. Check out details here.

Little Lovely Leftovers

22 Feb


Just finished stitching a set of 15 little prints for the Leftovers VI international print exchange organised by the irrepressible Amy Nack at Wingtip Press in Boise, Idaho, USA. The premise of Leftovers is to use up some of those scraps of beautiful printmaking papers that are often left over from our projects. I have put together an edition of 15 little rubber stamp prints that I developed from an original screenprint. I printed them onto fragments of Japanese Shiohara paper and then stitched them onto leftover pieces of Somerset, using my antique Singer sewing machine. Artists from all over the world participate in this each year and Amy puts together a touring exhibition of each year’s Leftovers that travels the globe. If you’re quick, there’s still time to enter.
