I’ve been working on this one-off scarf design to commemorate this weekend’s Diamond Jubilee and it’s been submitted to Selvedge magazine as part of a competition.
I hand dyed the silk and then spent many days and nights layering colours to create this geometric diamond pattern incorporating 25 different colours.
Temwa’s objective is to help build a sustainable future for the people of Malawi through community based projects in health education, sustainable agriculture & forestry, schools support and skills training.
Studio Amour will be part of the Temwa Art For Africa 2012 annual auction this saturday. We have donated 8 different artists prints, including my own work to help raise funds for the community development projects in Malawi.
This is such a great organisation and needs all your support so please make sure you get down to the show and delve deep! See you all there.
Heads up! I will be exhibiting at the exciting Print to the People’s latest project at the Stew Gallery in Norwich and making the trip down with three printed silks especially for the show.
” We are very pleased to announce the following 42 artists, collectives and independent businesses will be exhibiting a range of screen printed 2D and 3D pieces, installations, textiles and ceramics as part of 2012 ”

I’ve just got the photos back from the Kiss Me Quick pop up boutique held last month organised by Studio Amour. For those that missed out here is a quick round up.
It was an amazingly crisp Spring day, music drifted throughout the house. One hundred spring daffodils stood in vases and brightly coloured silks hung from floor to ceiling. Printed goodies adorned every available surface. It was the blossoming of a fresh range of limited edition prints, and greetings cards which were snapped up by keen followers. Every one that attended left with hart shapped lollies…and the sound of Édith Piaf ringing in their ears.

To promote the cause of hand printing over the machine, my husband and I have decided to hold bi-monthly exhibitions featuring the work of local and international Graffiti artists, Designers, Makers and Friends. I present you the first show 1001 Nights!
Heres some pics of us getting ready for it.
I hand printed each flyer onto fabric. It took a lot of patients but it was well worth it as they looked and felt really special. Some of the lengths we were printing were so big we had to kneel on top of the print table facing each other passing the squeegy back and forth.
