Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2021

I finally got the chance to go to London last week and see both of my prints
on the wall of the Royal Academy. It's a wonderful show this year, very vibrant and happy!
I'm thrilled to have been chosen again - this is the fifth time my work has been selected and 
these are my 7th and 8th prints to hang on the walls!
'Weathered Pink' & 'Nature of a Curve'
Both prints are available to buy from the R.A website or from my shops online.

It’s been really enjoyable working in collage recently, I love it’s immediacy. My usual printmaking process is more rigid, it’s very premeditated. My prints, more often than not, are ‘designed’ before making them. Stencils, colours and compositions are all worked out beforehand, with a few evolving and changing during the process, but not many.

There’s a structure to printing that collage just doesn’t have. Collage has been a bit of an effortless, or rather a more intuitive process. I like feeling my way around a space, using fragments and leftovers to build something new. Each collage is about balance of colour and the interactions of the shapes within the rectangle. Re-ordering pieces becomes the subject itself.

It’s a new way of working for me; a kind of thinking on top of words, working over the pages of books at the end of their lives. Something more spontaneous and recycled.

I will be selling these very soon, watch out on my instagram feed. 🙌🏻
