Here’s my stall from Leeds Print Fair a couple of weeks back which featured a couple of brand new pieces of work. Just added the Drystone wall print pictured top left on the table to my Etsy store!

Had a lovely time at Leeds Print Fair this weekend. Thanks to everyone who came down and stopped by my stand for a browse and a chat (and of course those who invested in my work), it's great to receive such good feedback!
Can you spot the Back To Future reference in this 'Vivarium' concept print?

About

Original design and illustration screen printed by hand to create unique, limited edition affordable art.

Thanks for stopping by my Etsy store.

I’m a graphic designer based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I produce work for a variety of clients but I also love to create original work in the form of hand pulled screen prints and am a member of West Yorkshire Print Workshop in Mirfield.

Screen Printing gives me an outlet for my own creations, pieces of illustration or design that are inspired by different aspects of my life; my home town, places I’ve visited, wildlife, music or, more recently, pieces designed for or inspired by my four-year-old daughter.

Being from a design background the approach to the aesthetic of my prints can vary and I'll incorporate different styles or techniques to suit the needs of the underlying idea.

I enjoy creating prints in this medium as time spent in the print studio gives me the opportunity to spend time by myself away from the noise of an increasingly digital existence. I also like the fact that the finished work is brought to life through an organic process. My work always starts with an idea and a sketch but I will often use digital tools to refine my illustrations. The screen printing process reintroduces a handmade element that brings with it unique qualities that make each print its own.
