Creativity belongs to the artist in each of us. To create means to relate. The root meaning of the word art is “to fit together” and we all do this every day. Not all of us are painters but we are all artists. Each time we fit things together we are creating – whether it is to make a loaf of bread, a child, a day. ~ Corita Kent

recent designs...





I haven't blogged for ages....

so here it is. I've spent the weekend transferring a design that I produced last week onto a lino. Although I have the design laid out, I've been planning the marks for cutting it out as I have been going along. I'm hoping to finish it so that I can print it on Tuesday morning. I'll blog a picture of the print when it is complete. It's called 'Mistle Thrush amongst the Rhubarb'. Looking at it now on the screen I can see certain elements in the composition that I would like to modify but I'll complete this one first before contemplating Mark II.

I also have another design that I want to produce as an Etching. The page on the left is a layout design for the Chine Colle that will be incorporated with the image on the right, which I'll print as an Etching. I'm still deciding whether to do it as a Hard or Soft ground etc....
