THANK YOU


A HUGE MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who has donated and sponsored our fundraising efforts this year for the YCC, it really does make a difference.
Last time we fundraised some of the money went towards a miniature radiotherapy machine for kids to role play with their teddies and dolls, making their own experience of cancer treatment a lot less scary for them and mum and dad, how fantastic is that!!
It's these little things that really do make a difference and the work that YCC do is truly fantastic, supporting research that benefits the whole country, so thank you, I think your fab xxx


I've been training and trekking the hills around my home, 
and hope gorgeous Yorkshire has prepared me for what's to come in Nepal!


I truly hope Blackpool bridge in Holme has prepared me for some of the suspension bridges of the Annapurna circuit!


Only 3 weeks to go now! 

* gulp * 

Injections done, visa next and a ridiculous amount of Trek bars bought from Sainsbury's stuffed into my kit bag! I'm really excited to be helping out at the hospice project in Katmandu but nervous for the trek, the reality of what I've actually signed up for is hitting me now!.... 

but knowing the reasons for me doing it makes me shout
"bring it on!"

Pink sunshine...





Pink sunshine garden party with friends and family!

Collaging together the printed stencil with mono printed backgrounds,






































and they look very happy together!









I'm so inspired by this process, can't wait to work on more ideas!

Fridays printing heaven...


I love this room.

It's like a therapy room of creative calm, 
time doesn't exist and I get lost in my own little world of experimenting, playing, making mistakes and learning and I love every minute of it.

                  


Each print is unique and the plates are positioned by eye giving a very handmade primitive and natural impression.

The images are not predetermined and organically created in the the print rooms, 
transferring a spontaneous and fresh feel to each print.

I love that I just don't know how each print will turn out, and the "Ta daaa" when I peel the the paper back to see what impressions have been made, 

which figure is talking to who, who is having a family hug and who is midnight garden singing!







I love the creative journeys we go on!
happy Friday.
