Chance & Seam, 71 x 71cm, handmade and hand drawn screenprints
on Fabriano Rosaspina, 2018, editions of 15 £235 

These handmade screenprints are from a recent body of work (June - July 2018) and have a textured appearance which echoes a woodcut print. I love to add textures using mark-making when drawing my images prior to hand printing them, to add interest and also to give them a feel of nature and the natural world. The materials I use give the work a chalky quality. The paper is heavyweight, slightly off white and with deckles to all edges. These prints are part of a series, and are available to buy. I'll be adding new ones soon too.

Gallery Walls to buy in sets.

Inspired by Matisse Collection.
A collection of six handmade original screenprints (from small editions) on Beautiful Fabriano Paper. 
Organic shapes and a delicate palette of greys, off whites and pale blues will add a feeling of peace and tranquility to your wall. I always strive to make work that is simple and understated with a little bit of elegance thrown in!

This nature inspired collection of simple motifs and fluid line drawings has a slight nod to Matisse. Available in my Etsy shop £265.

This minimalist set concentrates on geometric forms with bold use of colour. It’s crisp, smooth and clean images, explore shape and form through the layering of colours, textures and hand-drawn marks. I think this set has a retro / Mid Century Modern feel and is sure to add a pop of colour to any wall! 

Everything here has been made by hand from start to finish making a truly original collection of art. £440

This modern collection is fresh with summery shades of pinks, yellows and light grey’s. Most of the inspiration for these pieces comes from my immediate environment. I try to look beyond the obvious and note unusual shapes, patterns and colours as I go about my day, translating them into playful prints. £350

little sketches in coloured pencil. Generating new ideas for large prints.
