Yesterdays sunshine was perfect for photographing little artists books that I have been slowly making over the past few months - far too many to show on here! Some will be available from my etsy shop in the next couple of weeks, some will be making a debut at the Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage 9th 10th Sept and others will be heading south with ne to Handmade in Britain at Kew 11- 15th Oct. Here is a tiny taster

Enjoyed a bit of early morning finishing off prints today before heading off to Staithes Studios Gallery - these are printed with Fumitory, Angelica & cliff top grasses from along the Cleveland Way - this series is slowly finding its way into my online shop and I am busy making more Staithes based plant prints for the Staithes Festival of Arts & Heritage that is happening 8th, 9th & 10th Sept

Some days I am in a print studio, some days a painting studio, today I am in a plant studio - opening up flower presses and re-familiarising myself with the wonderful treasures they hold. These beautiful gatherings came as a surprise gift from a lovely friend and will be used in a new series of nature mono prints 'Gifts from a Country Garden' - destined for Handmade in Britain at Kew in October where I will be taking my Field and Hedgerow range of prints and artists books.
