Southwell Open Studios

posted on 20 / 8 / 2014

I’ll have a space at the Southwell open studios this weekend. You’ll find me at 14 Westgate, NG 25 0JH (opposite the Minster). If you’ve not spotted our brochures around town you can download yourself a pdf over at the Southwell Artists website – Here’s a link! There are 16 artists spread over 9 venues and this is the first year the open studios will run along side the Southwell folk festival. Come along, say hello and see what we’ve been up to!

Drum roll please…

Next month will be AUDREY AND ILLYA’S 1ST BIRTHDAY!!! To celebrate and to say thank you for all the love and support over the last 11 and a bit months I’ve made a bunch of limited edition sparkly prints. These beauties will be an added bonus to any Audrey and Illya online orders made from now until the end of September :)

Thank you so much lovely people! Birthday Birthday times!

A new print hit the Audrey and Illya shelves this week. She’s probably one of the fiddliest portraits I’ve done so far and made up of 7 separate layers. I thought I’d take some photos of the lino blocks this time so you can see how the layers fit together to create the finished print. No 2 are the same. So much (messy) fun.

I’ve been enjoying early morning printing sessions this week. Up and in the studio before 8, bliss. Here are some of the success stories (and a mishap, which is probably one of the prettiest things I’ve made… typical). I’ll do a shop update over the weekend – plenty of new lino prints to come!

This is what my weekend looked like. I’ll update this post with links to all the sellers and makers featured in the pictures and at the event – I need to sift through my bags for the details. Right now though… I’m off for a walk in the sun :)

Enjoy!
