A Feature in The Cambridge News and an Exhibition at The Buddhist Centre

I was recently interviewed by Emma Higginbotham from The Cambridge News regarding the Society of Women Artists 151st annual exhibition. Tim Parker from Cambridge School of Art was also interviewed in the same article on his recent success of winning in the Children's Category for the Penguin Books Design award, along with Alison King who came joint second in the Adult's Category. An image of the double page spread as it appeared in the paper is bellow but the whole article can be read online by following this link.

The MA Printmakers are also hosting a group show at the moment at Cambridge Buddhist Centre. The show is open now and is completely free to everyone to go and have a look round. Opening times are between 10am and 1pm Monday to Thursday until 28th August.

We held an open evening on Saturday 11th. It was a great opportunity to do some valuable networking and see some of the printmakers from uni as our studio is now closed for the summer until 25th Sept! I think we are all feeling the strain of not being able to get in there and get our hands on those lovely inks and beautiful presses we all love so much! Here are a few snaps from the evening.

My work in the top left, top right: the work of Diana Ashdown, bottom right: Some of Jane Hellings's biscuit prints, to the left of that Lynne Windsors dragonflies and in the bottom left, an etching by Mandy Langford.

Today I bought a new roller and have been busying myself at home by cutting some lino while the studio is closed so watch this space for some new lino relief prints coming soon!
