Back To Work

I have been away from the studio for two months whilst we moved into our house and started doing work. However, I now feel ready to get back to it. I'm going to the studio tomorrow so will take some pics of my space and the print room.



The picture on the right is from Spring Fling, it shows some of my new work, I have again been printing onto leather. I just love the feel of it and the contrast of the matt, smooth print with the rough leather. Spring Fling is a Scottish event which I took part in this summer in Dumfries and Galloway. It was a lovely event, with wonderfull settings and fabulous people. It really inspired me.
