Printmaking exhibition

With the printmaking class of 20/21 at Leith School of Art, I’m exhibiting some prints at Whitespace gallery in Edinburgh. April 23 – 27 2022.

At the Beach

My exhibition at Dungeness in Kent was a great success. Lots of visitors (and sales!). Plus I met some of my Instagram followers for the first time. Here’s a view through the window with two of my paintings on found wood. Top one sold.

My exhibition with husband Ron has now opened for three days at Dungeness Open Studios in Kent. Here’s a photo of the beach hut we’re using to show our work which is inspired by our visits to Dungeness for the past 8 years.

Exciting news!

I’ll be exhibiting work inspired by Dungeness and will be there in person, in a hut on the beach! A chance to meet me and my art.

Experiment in printmaking

I’ve been learning a few new printmaking methods on my course at Leith School of Art. Recent methods relate to working with simple tools and materials because the course is temporarily online until lockdown restrictions are eased.

This week we learned ‘kitchen litho’, a form of lithography using silver foil, wax crayons, Coca Cola, vegetable oil and oil paint. Here is an image of a plate and of two prints.

Morning exercises

I’ve been using off cuts from my painted papers and reject prints to make small collages each day, to get my creativity warmed up. Here’s a small selection.
