Birthday Dolly

Small doll made for Lucys birthday- Lucinda Guy - designer and author of wonderful books such as Kids Learn to Knit and And So To Bed. Top is knitted from a beautiful ancient oblong 'ball' of 3 ply wool, it could well be from the 1920's from the look of the label, the colour is called 'pasture'. Trousers are 1920's/30's American feedsack material.

Rochester Solo Show

I'm having a solo exhibition in a really good space at Rochester Art Gallery. It goes on until Saturday 22nd September, when I'll be there, on the last day, for a sort of 'meet the artist event' from 1pm or 2pm to about 3pm. I'll probably be talking mostly about printmaking methods (with the help, hopefully, of Bach Flowers Rescue Remedy)

Some monoprints of minotaurs, done for the Rochester exhibition, using black etching ink, gold leaf and an etching press.
