I have completed a new series of bird paintings and prints for the Bowery Gallery, Leeds.
These are small canvasses; 15 x 15 cm, retail £85.
The screen prints I made where really inspired by tree shapes as well as birds.
‘Roots and shoots’ £25 framed
This theme has been sparked by projects I have been teaching.
This print is called ‘Roots and Shoots’ which was the subject for a workshop I did at Ashbrow Infant and Junior School, Huddersfield. This title suggested by the inspiring head teacher set me on a path of circles and roots in my personal work!
‘Gathering’ £25 framed
‘Nesting’ £25 framed
Blue bird £25 framed
I also did a few prints based on love and kind words, we all need to read kind words sometimes, right?
‘The stars will always shine for you’ £28 framed
‘Love’ £28 framed
‘Love birds’ £28 framed
‘The birds will always sing for you’ £28 framed
I have always worried about my screen prints being very different from my paintings and feel by tying together themes, colours and shapes I am getting closer to the coherent style I dream about!
