Peace Breaks Out! - At the Sir John Soane Museum

I am pleased to have a print displayed as part of the current exhibition that has just opened at the Sir John Soane Museum. 'Peace Breaks Out!' focuses on the summer of 1814 when Europe celebrated peace after the Treaty of Paris following the fall of Napoleon. The Soane Museum, working alongside Spitalfields Life chose 6 contemporary artists to produce work in response to this exhibition.Many of the items in this exhibition are souvenirs celebrating the peace brought about at the end of the war. I thought it would be interesting to record these as a print, which in itself can become a souvenir of this exhibition and commemorate the stylistic influences that crossed the newly- reopened channel from Paris.Prints will be available at the museum and also online here. I am delighted to be shown alongside Adam Dant, Romilly Saumerez Smith, Laura Knight, Bridie Hall and Paul Bommer. The exhibition runs until 13th September.

Women in Print




Nice to finally get my hands on the printed copies of the Riso booklets made for the Women in Print talk at MMU a little while back. I particularly like Lotte Beatrix's portrait of Olive Cook and Desdemona Mccannon's portrait of Enid Marx.

Ernest Magazine

Another sneak peak at something I have been working on for Ernest Journal - who have just celebrated the launch of their first print issue this weekend. It will be a print helping you to identify Things you can fish from a Kayak...still being produced but will be available to purchase soon (along with the magazine online here!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SOMA

Here is my full image made for SOMA's 10th Anniversary print box set. Mine was inspired by a visit (a little while ago now) to the Ethnographic Museum in Krakow. The 10 prints are all available to view and buy in the gallery in Bristol, as well as online. A steal at only £30 each and the whole box set of ten for £275 it'd be rude not to!

A sneak peak at a print made for SOMA Gallery's 10th Anniversary. As part of the celebration there will be a birthday-day this Saturday at the gallery in Bristol launching 10 prints by 10 different artists to be sold individually and as limited edition box sets. Will reveal the rest later in the week...!

Quilts































While I was away I saw some great quilt exhibitions including 'Quilt and Color' at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and an even better one (but unfortunately photography wasn't permitted!); 'Homefront and Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War' at the New York Historical Society which had some stunningly rendered illustrative quilts depicting the passing of civil rights and also women's rights. I would reccommend both to anyone in either area!
