Hot Bed Press Printmakers’ Studio is celebrating its 20th birthday with an exhibition at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery. ’20′ will feature the work of twenty artists and I am delighted to have been selected to exhibit. It will run from 14th June until 6th September. To coincide with the exhibition, the Museum will host a five-week school of print demonstrating a range of printmaking techniques.

Massive thanks go to calligrapher extraordinaire – Duncan Tolmie – for creating the beautiful lettering in my new logo. The full disclosure is that said calligrapher also happens to be my dad but my appreciation of his work is entirely unbiast.
Duncan gave me lots of different versions of the lettering, hand drawn in a ‘pointed pen’ style. Below are just a few of the options – a difficult choice!
If you would like to see more of Duncan’s handcrafted lettering and artwork you can visit his website or Wishful Inking blog. For anyone living in the Glasgow area, he also teaches calligraphy classes at the University of Strathclyde and The City of Glasgow College.
The stylised representation of a dandelion clock in the logo is one of the elements from my limited edition etching ‘Over Wildflower Meadow’.
