Spike Island


This is Spike Print studio where I do all my printing and etching
It's been a crazy year for me...a huge change, relocating and moving to live on a boat. It has brought many challenges, setting up a new network, finding where everything is, boat stuff, finding work, or shops to sell my Art...for those of you who have relocated and set up a new life on your own you'll know what I mean! Sometimes it has felt like it's one thing after...but when i reflect I have done quite a lot with my year, it's hard to see it when you've not stopped!
"Life is just a ride" Bill Hicks

... onwards and upwards... x x

kissing trees coming to life

 This is my latest copper plate in the process of being drawn... tomorrow if i finish today I'll bite it at Spike Print Studio... I love how they look at this stage and it's not often you get to see them like this for long. When the plates are bitten the black ground is removed after.

"Women whose chief companions are the forms and forces of outdoor Nature retain in their souls far more of the Pagan fantasy of their remote forefathers than of the systematised religion taught at a later date..."

Thomas Hardy, Tess of the d'Urbervilles 1891

Sol

Sol is my nephew...it seems only yesterday we were dancing to beastie boys and songs about kandinksy in the kitchen... When he was born over 15 years ago (!) he literally was the sunshine in my life, still is and Yes I'm a very proud Aunty El. Here he is on his BMX at a skate park next to the ocean on the North Coast of Cornwall. I love the way they choreograph their tricks together. He is getting real good.
