365 Prints

print:  a mark or impression made in or on a surface by pressure.... something formed or marked by a device or implement.....to press onto a surface.

I am setting myself a target this year in order to really push and explore my love of print.  The plan is to make 365 printing devices or tools, one for each day of the year.  Developing on from past experiments with mark making, shape, colour and texture and using techniques from print making, screen printing and whatever else I discover on the way.  I am not sure where this will take me yet or what I may end up creating as a result, I'm just going to experiment, take a few risks and see what happens and share it on here.


Getting a head start on Christmas Day.....


I will post my first print plate and results tomorrow.
I'd be interested to know whether you have plans in place for the new year? Let me know what you are all up to...


New Year New Projects

So I'm starting my new year early this year.... I know, it might seem overly keen and organised but its really down to the fact that the mister has been in bed with the flu since Xmas Eve and as we were due to travel north for our Xmas celebrations, it has made for a rather quiet time.

On the plus side, its meant I had an opportunity to consider what next....

As it happens I had also got this card in the post from The Design Trust (very useful website if you don't know it) which was pushing me to consider my business plans, hopes and dreams for 2015.
It starts with giving you some words to choose from to help focus the year ahead.  You can see the ones I have chosen to select below.


Collaborative, Imaginative and Aesthetic.

I have a new project in the pipeline - something to get the imagination going and hopeful it will result in an exhibition with a fellow maker. And this year I am so very determined to get all that stuff I need to sort out - branding, websites, packaging, online shops etc! (oh yes! and back to some blogging)  Its going to be a very productive year and hopefully you will be able to follow some of the changes with me on my blog.

Still here!

I have been a little absent from my blog recently (have you noticed??) - lots going on, house moves, more study, some making still happenning and I am using facebook more and more to update. 

However I do need to get back to my blog - I have missed it.

I am spending less time in the studio these days, and remembered that my blog is a great way to connect to people if I can't get to the studio.  I am planning to share a bit more - perhaps I have been holding back.

So just to start you off by sharing one of my favourite places for inspiration - if you haven't found it yet -  love this site http://blog.patternbank.com/inspiration/

Will be back with further updates soon.....
