Reflections and Revelations

Spring 2018 is not far away now and I'll be very pleased to see the last of this winter's grey and overcast skies. The frequent onslaught of rain and sleet hasn't been that helpful for getting out and about in the countryside. The studio has been a tad chilly too so I've been spending more time at the Digswell Arts print room attempting to complete some of the mixed media print work that i'll be displaying this Spring

I love to discover new ways of working too so i've been playing around with using acetate based imagery for some current book pieces. I had produced acetate imagery for the Solar prints and I loved the way the photographs from the Fen looked quite ghostly and enigmatic especially when layering imagery together.
