New Studio

I have been settling into my new studio space. The light is fantastic and I’m sure that as I get busier I won’t notice the ‘little old lady’ features quite so much. If this becomes a long term arrangement, then I will consider imposing my own tastes on the decor. But meanwhile, I am very grateful to be able to use such a splendid space just a short walkfrom my own home and an equally short walk to Double Elephant Print Workshop where the really messy stuff gets done.
(I have taken the precaution of turning the carpet over so that I can be messy here as well as warm.)

Just unpacked!

It might not look like that much stuff now that it’s all been unpacked and put away – but it took two van loads to move and about two hours hard labour for me and my invaluable helpers.

THANK YOU to Ben, Helen, Greg, Lesley and Tom. I hope you are still enjoying your ‘doggy-bags of gratitude’.

As always – studio visits are by appointment. Contact for the address and make a date. (Locals in Exeter might be able to work out the location from the view out of the window, but please contact me first).

A room with a view…

Not being used to having a view from a window I am finding that watching the world go by is a little bit too interesting!

To save myself from feeling like a goldfish in a bowl – I have now made some bunting to go across the window and give myself something to hide behind.

Bunting

72 double sided mono-printed bits of fabric makes 20m of bunting!!

and what it looks like from outside

I hope to be able to arrange it down the garden path and onto the road side during Exeter Open Studios in November – to lure people in  😉

Through my artwork I look to say something about the environment - explore how we interact, use, abuse and collaborate with the natural world around us. This has taken me to increasingly focus on the small ubiquitous and often reviled weeds and bugs that form the foundation and engine-room of ecosystems. I use a wide range of printmaking techniques – both traditional and innovative, often creating complex one off prints. ****** Co-founder and director of Double Elephant Print Workshop since 1997. Originally trained in Conservation of Prints and Drawings 1980 -1982. Studied Fine art at University of Plymouth 1993 -1996.
