 Winter Goosegrass

The sun came out today highlighting the lasting signs of winter. Hedgerows are slowly showing tiny green buds and violets giving way to snowdrops at their base. Dried and weathered goosegrass still clings mapping out the flow of the wind on hawthorn and fence posts.

Nature, ink and chance - some wintery tangles printed on Fabriano, Hoshi and Newsprint papers 50x70cm

Made in a Day

I had such fun today at where I was the 'Made in a day ' event at Art& York - caught here printing from nature to make a long scroll book of leaves - some of the parts can be seen drying behind me. A big thanks you to Victoria and the team for inviting me to do this and all you lovely people who stopped by, showed interest, had a chat and really engaged with what I was doing - it means a lot!

Lots of  little artists books found their way into my Etsy shop yesterday - the cover of this one reminds me of a firework

Here is a little taster of my current installation at Art& York - this fantastic event is at York race course and runs throughout the weekend - I will be joining my work on Suday where you can catch me in action printing

Taking Time with Ferns, Fennel and Honesty

One of the joys of living in the middle of nowhere is that we have to go at the pace of living in the middle of nowhere. I like to give my Etsy shop a bit of love and attention on a Sunday and that is when I usually do my listing - today our internet connection has been doing very much its own thing - which really has not been very much at all  - so it is at a very slow pace that this little hand made Hold and Fold artists book found its way into my shop today - I am hoping that to redress the balance it will be a speedier goings on making an exit from my shop.
