A rare glimmer of sunshine today has really cheered me up. A visit to made me realise that a few spring blooms can do you the world of good. I’ve decided that my next collection of prints will be dedicated to flowers and wildlife, can’t wait to show them off at some time in May. There, I’ve said it now, let printmaking commence!

I am getting super professional and moving into a new studio premises at the end of the month. ‘Fusion’ at the Tile museum in Jackfield is a modern building on the site of the old works, it’s architecture and name reflect the industrial processes carried out historically on the site. Fusion now houses ‘Artisans at Fusion’ of which I will be one. I’ll continue with my graphics and illustration business while combining my new found love of lino printing. I hope to sell framed limited edition prints from the studio and will be running lino printing workshops. I’m really excited and looking forward to the new challenges ahead. Hope to see some of you there!

I’m putting together some brand new views of Coalbrookdale and the surrounding area for an exhibition of my work at EightySix’d in Ironbridge. It runs from 14th March – 9th April. EightySix’d is a relaxed coffee house with scrummy cakes and lunches, the girls are taking a break in February but back with a vengeance in March. Check out EightySix’d on FB and twitter to get more info about the show and upcoming events in March!

To anyone who doesn’t know about Apple Day in Coalbrookdale you are missing a treat! This celebration of all things ‘Appley’ is a local tradition and brings together local crafts food and music in the beautiful woodland setting of the Greenwood Centre, a collection of old railway buildings and traditionally crafted barns. This Saturday was no exception, I had a wonderful day and for the first time I had a small stall selling my lino prints. The response was fantastic, it seems that all that inspires me about this lovely corner of Shropshire has a similar effect on others. My pieces of hand crafted artwork showing familiar views and wildlife had a really good response, thank you to everyone who came along. I’m so excited about creating more work and can’t wait to start cutting a new piece combining the idea of the industrial heritage of the area with natural elements. Will keep you posted!
