An exhibition of new and existing works in which I explore the relationship between the magical lands of my imagination and work inspired by observational drawing. Work shown will primarily be hand-painted drypoints, collagraphs and digital illustrations.
My residency is almost over – and what a wonderful time it’s been! I have fallen in love with etching again, and had a chance to really push my work forward. Suzanne’s work has entranced me, filling my every thought with her characters and scenes from Paris and her travels.
So now it’s a chance for you to come and see both my work and Suzanne’s stunning etchings which have been my companions for the past 4 months. The Launch is on Saturday the 11th August and you are all welcome to come and join the celebrations.
Well, I am half way through my Artist in Residence time at Leicester Print Workshop – the last six weeks have flown by. The days have been passing in a flurry of learning about acids, drawing in Leicester Market, finding a voice that shouts louder than the market sellers and well, finding my way generally.
I will be writing more write more about this fabulous opportunity as time progresses, but for now you can read a brief introduction to the Residency, and the amazing, humorous and fantastic work of Suzanne Balkanyi on Leicester Print Workshop’s site.
It would be lovely if you could join me for an afternoon of cake, collagraphs and chats this coming Saturday 2nd June 2018.
I am delighted to have the Meet the Artist event at Cank Street Gallery, Leicester to celebrate the closing of my “sketchbooks” exhibition at the Gallery. It has been such a lovely show, with some very kind and generous feedback – which was a relief as I did feel that opening my sketchbooks for a display was like delving into the back of a deep, dark cupboard – one never quite knew what would be pulled out! But, Dayle Flude, the owner of the gallery, with her expert eye, has selected a beautiful collection of pages that complimented each other perfectly (I wouldn’t have known where to begin).
