I've been away from the design and blog world for a few years now but i'm about to relaunch my new work through The Working Proof gallery.
The Working Proof will be showcasing my first ever letterpress print of my line drawings and this has been produced as a limited edition of 100.
Autumn Poppy is a four colour letterpress print on 300gsm Somerset Rough 100% cotton paper (8.25 in. x 11.7 in). It is on sale for $60 and 15% of the proceeds will go direct to the Show Hope charity who are dedicated to orphan care and facilitating adoption.
Letterpress suits my line work so well, and I love the textural qualities that the medium provides to my artwork. I worked with a great letterpress company in the UK called Blush°° Publishing to produce this print. I chose colours that remind me of my favourite season, Autumn...Burnt orange, yellow ochre, rich purple and warm grey
The print is due to launch on Tuesday 26th October at 1:30pm EST.
I have just attended the opening of the Prints Charming exhibition at Welcome Home Gallery and was bowled over by the amount of amazing (and affordable!) artwork on show. Mhari has done a great job curating a wide mix of talented and diverse artists for this show and I was honoured to be a part of it. If you can't make it along in person, Mhari will be hosting an online pop up store soon...
I visit here seldomly...hopefully I will up my posts and get back into the swing of blogging again!
Some news - I am lucky enough to feature some of my work as part of the Bloom opening exhibition at Welcome Home, a new gallery and store in Glasgow, owned and curated by the very talented Mhari McMullan. Website will be up and running soon.
Great to see somewhere unique like this opening in Glasgow after Hitherto closed. The ever fabulous Abigail Percy is also exhibiting. See you there!
