London Printmakers at the National Theatre

 A few photos from Thursday’s Private View of the London Printmakers Exhibition at the National Theatre on Thursday evening – I really will have to go back and take some more……

                                  Colin Moore and Veta Gorner, in front of Colin’s linocuts.

                       And Susie Perring explaining the finer points of her etching, Holiday Tree……

                              The show is on every day until 21st April and entrance is free.

Waterlands Exhibition at Cambridge

My three new seaside prints, framed and ready to deliver this week to Cambridge Contemporary Art for their new exhibition ‘Waterlands – East Anglian Landscapes and Seascapes’.

On the left is Wishful Thinking, then in the middle is Indian Summer, and finally on the right is The Last To Leave. They are £295 framed (54x54cms) and £230 unframed (34x33cms).

The exhibition is on from 31st March – 22nd April 2012, and is open every day.


              A selection of my lino cutting tools – laid out here in a pretty bog standard arrangement…   

                           Next up is a more dynamic and creative structure – and yes, before
                           you ask, I did find myself a little disengaged at work today….

Metroland II

Here is a new version of my linocut Metroland. It was first shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition nearly three years ago and the edition of 75 sold out in seventy-two hours (those were the days, sigh). Anyway, that’s long enough for the blocks to be sitting around in my studio doing nothing so out they came for another airing. I reversed the printing order of the some of the blocks, did some more cutting, changed the colours (obviously) and, hey presto, Metroland II.

Studio Dog

Here is one of our canine studio members, Tommy Waldock-Davies, making himself comfortable on my Wishful Thinking lino blocks – he is a little shih tzu and WILL NOT KEEP STILL, especially when he knows he’s having his photo taken…..
