'Hot Off the Press' at Curwen Gallery

I was very excited to be invited to exhibit as part of the Hot Off The Press exhibition for 2012 printmaking graduates at the Curwen Gallery. 

I was also awared the Curwen Gallery 2012 Graduate Prize, which means an internship at the Curwen Print Studios in Cambridgeshire. I feel very honoured to have been given this opportunity to work with such a historic and high profile studio, it is also in a beautiful part of the world!

New Caligo Safe Wash Inks

I am setting up my little studio (only in my flat!) and am in the process of building up a small collection of rollers, papers and inks. Throughout my MA I used oils based inks, which need to be cleaned with solvents. I am keen to use non toxic techniques if possible- better for the environment, and probably better for me! I already have a black, but here are some new primarys. I made this small swatch to remind myself of the exact colours, hopefully that will be handy when printing.

Margate = Margreat!

This weekend I went to Margate, we got cheap train tickets as part of the Mary Portas pilot scheme. As you may know I LOVE seaside towns, and much of my previous work is based on my visits to British Seaside towns.

We also visited the Turner Contemporary Gallery, which was buzzing with visitors and has some exciting installation art. 

Margate is a beautiful town, but very run down. I really hope that the Portas scheme and other investments can regenerate it, as the views and the light over the sea is quite stunning.
