I'm delighted to be participating in the 5th Sheffield Print Fair
The event takes place between 10am and 4pm, on Sat 11th November 2017, and entry is £1 (free for under 16s). All profits go towards St Mary's charity for homeless people and refugees.
This is the second year I've been involved with the exhibition, we love showing at the Art House - hopefully this is the venue for the annual Sheffield Printmakers show!
I've really enjoyed making my pieces, inspired by requests from friends and a little dog called Ruby. And yes - I do believe in unicorns!
St Marie’s Cathedral has worked in partnership with the Sheffield Printmakers Association to present a unique group exhibition that features a selection of artworks created by thirteen talented printmakers.
The exhibition brings together a wide range of innovative styles and printing techniques, from woodcut to drypoint, all the way through to linocut and collagraph.
Artists have sought inspiration in the exquisite architecture, art and design of St Marie’s Cathedral after taking part in specially tailored guided tours. These printmakers have undeniably succeeded in capturing and conveying the beauty and the many subtleties of this place of worship in surprising ways. St Marie’s evocative light, rich colours, silent and devotional space, transparency of the glass, intricate patterns or expressive textures are definitely present in these pieces.
Some artworks have easily recognisable features, while others show more abstract elements. However, as one would expect, all of them are incredibly personal and subjective, which makes them equally fascinating, beautiful and inspiring.

In the pieces I submitted for this show the female form is described using free machine embroidery and incorporated with one of my own (men's) shirts in. The use of the coat hanger refers to being 'out of the closet.' I am 'showing my hand.' in these pieces
