Chickens and owls!

Hurrah! Two of my lino prints are being featured in two lovely new books that are being published as I type! They have been compiled by Alan Marshall of Mascot Media. 
My chicken linocut is in 'The Little Chicken Book'...

Here's my page... 🐓🐓🐓
Here's my own photo of the print and original carved block. 

I'm also lucky enough to have my blue owl lino print in this book too...

Mine is the one on the right 🌛

These books contain the work of so many wonderful printmakers, many who I'm totally in awe of. I keep pinching myself, I can't believe my work is in there too! 

Exhibiting at RHS Rosemoor

This bank holiday I was lucky enough to exhibit with Devon Art Pop. A lovely group of Devon artists organised by Jill Griffin and Theresa Shaw.

Our exhibition was at RHS Rosemoor over three days. Such beautiful gardens, I'd never visited before but will certainly return. 

My work is on the board on the left of this photo. 

Some photos of the gardens...

Two of my new lino prints for sale alongside poems kindly written by Chaz E Arnold aka  The Paignton Poet. 

Here are some if my new seedhead linocuts that I also exhibited at Rosemoor.

TwitterArtExhibit in New York

This year I submitted this 'Wishing Bird' linocut to the TwitterArtExhibit at The Trygve Gallery in New York in aid of Foster Pride. 

Here you can see my carving the lino block. 

This is the finished lino print 1/1. 

Here you can see my finished print on the wall as part of the exhibition. 

This is the poster to advertise the event.

I'm going to enter again next year. It's being held in Stratford in the UK so I may be able to visit the exhibition next time around.
