The ‘Afternoon Tea’ is series inspired by all the strange and wonderful tea parties in my favorite stories. This is the beginning of the little story introducing the characters.


One late Sunday afternoon, I am drawing at my desk when, suddenly, a large wooden door appears on the paper.

‘Knock, knock!’ I hear and, not knowing how to open the door, I reply ‘Come in!’

The door creaks open and in comes the Sunbear saying, somewhat presumptuously, ‘Tea and honey would be fine!’

Knowing bears, I prepare a rather big pot of honey and mug full of hot tea.

‘Thank you! How do you like my sweater?’ asked the Sunbear, helping himself to the honey. But there is no time to admire his attire.

‘Knock, knock!’

Another knock on the door. I wonder ‘Who will it be?’

… to be continued ...

Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique; a set number of prints (edition) are printed by the artist from a handmade plate. The drawing is incised into a plate with a hard-pointed "needle" or diamond point. Traditionally, the plate was copper or zinc, but today, a clear acrylic sheet is commonly used. The plate is inked and the ink is transferred onto cotton paper using a printing press.

All prints are shipped flat in a ridged mailer.

Feel free to ask any question.

Thank you for your interest!
