Open: Oct: 5th6th12th13th
I love finding visual interest in the things that surround us in our lives: onions, garlic, chillis and figs in my kitchen, fish from the market. It's no accident that most of the works I've sold have ended up on kitchen walls because food is definitely a feature. I'm also very inspired by the wild flowers I see on country walks in Normandy and the cowslips and wild fennel I snapped with my phone have been a big thing for me this year.
I like to simplify what I see into stylised forms that lend themselves to the sort of printmaking I do. People have been kind enough to say that I have an eye for composition, which - if true - certainly helps to support the overall visual impact. Last year was my first WAOH. I loved the experience and am looking forward to it again this year.
I'm thrilled that my son, Fred, will also be exhibiting alongside me. Fred has an unusual and totally unique approach to lino printing. He took to it immediately, joining me at Putney School of Art.
Please note, I'm not opening the first weekend - just October 12 and 13. As I did last year, I will be donating a percentage of any profit I make to Project Harar.
