Three little rare bees off on their way to Switzerland. But don't worry, three more rare bees now listed to replace them.

Photographing some more little prints this morning to replace some of the small prints I've sold recently. Even with editions, I like to photograph the actual print listed.

About

Master printmaker with an environmental theme

My original training in the 1980s was in conservation of prints and drawings and gave a solid foundation in the traditional techniques of the ‘old masters’ and an appreciation of quality materials. As a young thing I even worked at the British Museum for a while. Although it was a thrill to handle genuine Rembrandt prints and I was good at “touching up old masters” – this wasn’t what I saw myself doing for the rest of my life.

I needed to be doing something more creative. After a while working in animation and still feeling frustrated, I sent myself off to travel around Africa to get myself energized.

The result being that I found it very hard to slip back into working for other people and had a burning desire to find out what I could do for myself artistically. To cut a long story short – I went back to college to study fine art and found myself gravitating towards printmaking again. On graduating I was very fortunate to be in a position to set up a print workshop in Exeter with a colleague. Over the years Double Elephant Print Workshop has gone from strength to strength and there are now 7 voluntary directors, approximately 90 members, loads and loads of courses and a bank of portable presses that get taken to schools and community groups so that printmaking can reach more people.

Now that Double Elephant is more established and I have excellent colleagues working with me, I have been able to put more of my energies into my own artwork. I have my own web site and I’m a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen (you are thoroughly vetted before you are allowed to join!). Although I do sell work in some local galleries and get work out in exhibitions further afield. I am seriously enjoying having a shop here on Etsy. I’m mainly listing small easy to post work and I’m greatly appreciating getting feedback from people all over the world!

If you see anything on my website you would like a closer look at, I am very happy to list it here for you so that you can get multiple views and close ups. Of course, if you are relatively local, you can get in touch to arrange a studio visit.

I hope you enjoy exploring my shop. If you have any questions about my work or about printmaking generally, I would be very happy for you to get in touch with me.

I am also admin for https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DoubleElephantPrints the Etsy shop for the print workshop I manage in Exeter.

Greetings!! – and welcome to my fine art print shop.

Each print is a hand crafted original. There are no reproductions here.

All of my work is inspired by nature, the environment and the tenacity of 'weeds'.

I have some coupons made so that when you receive your first order you will also get a code to give you a discount on subsequent orders.
Parcels will also contain an art postcard (or two) or other small gift!!!

I like to use top quality heavy weight paper (usually 300gm) so It is best not to roll up prints for posting, especially when the printing process results in a fair amount of embossing. I will therefore only ship my prints flat and protected with card.

If you do not find the answer to your questions below, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Meanwhile – please take your time looking around the shop....

If your item gets LOST or DAMAGED in the post:
Please get in touch with me and we will sort something our together.
For example - if the item appears to be LOST we would need to chase up the post office and leave sufficient time before we can be sure that the item really is lost in the post before we agree to replace or refund.

If the item arrives DAMAGED - if it is an editioned print, I may have an identical print to send as a replacement. If it is one of a kind, I may have something similar or you may choose to have a refund.
Please inform me within 7 days from the day after you received the DAMAGED goods and I will arrange a refund or replacement within 30 days from being notified of the problem.

If your print has been DAMAGED in the post I will need you to send the item back to me (or, at the very least, email a very clear photograph of the damage) so that I can be compensated by the post office myself.
