Yesterday finally saw my new range of lino prints go live in my Etsy shop:<virtual chest bump>. I’ve had them on my to-do list since last year, unfortunately, this thing called life sometimes gets in the way. But you know what they say: ‘better late than never’.
There are six different designs currently View Post
Continuing on from my last two posts, I’m now super happy to say that my new lino-prints will be available to purchase from Tuesday 29th March! A mix of inspirational quotes and music lyrics, they will be printed onto cotton rag paper and available either as a single print or in a frame.
I’ll be releasing a few more images next week, but for now, here are a couple more prints that will be available from the end of the month.
If you read my last blog post, you’ll have seen that I’ve got a new product range coming out later this month. It’s been pretty exciting working on everything, knowing that the end product can be framed and hung, instead of being used just once and then thrown away. Apart from wanting to create a product that has longevity attached to it, the driving force behind it has come from my love of text: calligraphy, hand-lettering, typography; quotes, lyrics and mixed media art works all leave me feeling pretty inspired.

My first word is Action and so far it’s been working out pretty well. Last year, like every year, I ended up with notebooks and scraps of paper covered in lists, scrawls, scribbles and so called light bulb moments; unfortunately, not a lot came to fruition. But after purchasing Your Best Year 2016 by Lisa Jacobs, I realised I’d been dragging my feet with a number of new projects for way too long and decided that this year, it was time to act.

When I first started experimenting with printing again it felt like I was stumbling around in the dark, eyes closed and arms outstretched with absolutely no idea what I was doing. When I studied printmaking at college the materials I used were woodblocks, screens, lino and plates for etching. 20 years later when I decided to revisit printmaking, it was like starting all over again; what do I need, where do I get it from and what the bloody hell do I do with everything?
