New U.V. Lamp

March 2022

I bought a somewhat Heath-Robinson style U.V. lamp last year and have just been able to set it up, which is very exciting! It means that I can do cyanotypes without having to wait for sunshine. However, the exposures are much longer generally. I did a couple of test strips on textured Khadi paper. Next up, I will try some much thinner, commercially made, sun print paper. I always wear U.V.safety glasses, kindly sent to me by the company Uvex.

TwitterArt Charity Postcard TAE2022

January 2022

This year's international Twitter art postcard exhibition/auction TAE22 will be held at the Hiscox Building, York 25th-26th June, and then online to raise funds for The Encephalitis Society. This is the sixth time that I've donated and this year I have created an homage to vintage nest illustrations, using Polychromos coloured pencils and watercolour. I really enjoyed creating the piece and do hope it sells!

Botanical Bunting

January 2022

This is the finished Christmas card/decoration. It became Christmas Botanical Bunting and contained holly, mistletoe, fir, orange, ginger, ivy and poinsettia. Many people sent me photos of their bunting hanging up. I really enjoyed making this one!
