West Elm Pop up!

So excited to be popping up at at West Elm's stunning flagship store on Tottenham Court road on the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of March! I'll be setting myself up in a cosy nook and decking it out with all my tropical goods! I'm so grateful to West Elm for supporting me and my indie business by including me in their outreach program! See the event on their facebook page here as well as all the other exciting workshops and pop ups that they are hosting in March! 

Barbican Conservatory

I've been back at Print club and feeding my Screen printing addiction! I just can't get enough! This time I've been Inspired by one of my favourite spots; The Barbican Conservatory! Capturing the incredible Jungle that it is! Printed in four colours including; Acid Yellow, Neon Pink, Peacock Blue and Navy. I'd love to hear what you think or if there's a subject you'd like to see me translate into a print?!!

Welcome to Palm Springs

My newest screen print is inspired by a trip to this mid-century mecca and cacti paradise! I fell in love with Palm Springs when I was there and had to capture it! I created a surface pattern with lots of mid century architecture and varieties of cacti which I then selected a few elements from and created this composition. Screen printed by hand in 5 colours; pastel neon coral, mint, sky blue, teal and fine black outlines capturing the sun soaked feel! 

Screen printing!

So my new obsession is Screen printing! As a treat to myself I attended Print Club London's 'Deluxe' Workshop in January in which I produced a two layer tiger print, edition of ten, see the video below!

I have since become a Print Club member so that I can continue on using their facilities and making limited edition art prints! It is so great to break away from the computer and start mixing inks and learning something new!

So during my membership this month I've been working on a new five layer print called 'Explorer's Greenhouse' it imagines all the horticultural samples that may have been brought back by an explorer to their Victorian Hothouse as well as including some stuffed animals! See a slideshow of all 5 layers being built up below!
