Studio, bikes, creatures and no words...

Hi there

Right, I'm trying to be good and not leave it so long between blog posts... 


This is a view of my studio. I've tided up a bit and it feels a bit more of a homely space to work in. Still work-in-progress, but I'm getting there!


My 'Peloton' print is now available in my Folksy shop. It is an A3 poster-print, printed on 200gsm natural paper.

At the end of the month I am also releasing a new Folk Forest print, entitled 'The Folk Forest No.5', to coincide with the 5th year of the Folk Forest music, arts and crafts festival in Sheffield. It will be a limited (100 copies) A3 poster-print, on 200gsm natural paper. It will be available initially from my stall at the Folk Forest Fair at the festival which happens on Sat 25th and Sun 26th July 2015 in Endcliffe Park, Sheffield, but if there are any left after I will put them in my Folksy shop. The event is well worth a visit! Great music, location, art & craft and food/drinks!


I am taking part in two events this month:

Sharrow Vale Market, Sharrow Vale Road, Sunday 19th July 2015, 12-4pm
It has been a while since I took part in this, but it is always fun. Gourmet burgers, nice coffee, art, Greek dancing and all sorts! 

The Folk Forest Fair, Endcliffe Park, Sheffield, Sat 25th and Sun 26th July 2015, 12-8pm
As mentioned above, as part of the festival. There is an impressive arts and crafts fair with all sorts of homewares, art, clothes, jewellery and more...

I'm taking part in a new exhibition at A Month Of Sundays gallery in Sheffield, entitled 'No Words Required'. The premise is that each artist was asked to create a new piece of work in a comic-strip format, with no words. I've created a new screen-print, a kind-of sequel to one of my current prints. I'm not saying any more than this for now, but further hints may appear on my facebook! The exhibition runs from 1st Aug until the 29th Aug 2015. There are some great artists included, so I'm flattered to have been asked!
