Just in case there is any confusion – this is my own personal response to Double Elephant’s project Redefining Print. I am not wearing my “Double Elephant hat” here, this isn’t the official line, this is just a reflection on how it was for me.
International Printmaking Conference & Print Festival Scotland took place in Dundee 28th August – 1st September 2013
I was very lucky to be sent by Double Elephant Print Workshop to Dundee for IMPACT8 with my colleague Simon Ripley and our collaborator Josh Gaunt from Workshops n’ Docs. (more…)
Excited to be invited to help launch a new gallery space in Exeter.
The space is to be found in the Centre for Creative Industries building at Exeter College just off Queen Street. Very happy to be invited to show with some top class artists.
There was a great atmospere at the launch with music and canapés provided by the students. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that the canapés were so good at the gallery launch at Exeter College when Michael Caines is one of the governors. Well done to the young people studying hospitality and catering.
1980 – First post school printmaking. During the Conservation of Prints & Drawings course I had to learn about, make and print the full range of print processes available to the ‘Old Masters’. Woodcut, Wood engraving, Etching (hard ground, soft ground and aquatint), Engraving, Lithography (plate and stone), and screenprint.
