Printing Park Street and Making Mirrors!

Well, I have been playing from home over the past few days and it's been great! So far, new, hand-held compact mirrors have been created and the beginnings of a new print, featuring my illustration of Park Street, have been taking shape in my home studio! New compact mirrors will soon be available on my online shop for £4.50 including postage, each nestled inside a white organza bag. Every mirror captures a hand-printed or painted design and is unique. A special something for the Christmas stocking perhaps? I will be developing the Park Street print by adding colour via a technique called watercolour monoprint. . .I'll share the result with you shortly! It's been a busy time here at Amy HQ.

Green Light for Bristol Eye Hospital's new Mural

After a long design process, public consultation and discussion, the mural designed for Bristol Eye Hospital will go ahead! Funded by the Friends of Bristol Eye Hospital, this mural is replacing an old, damaged relief artwork. The mural will be in the entrance to the Eye Hospital wards and Pre-Operative Assessment Unit, found on level 3. The area is used as an entrance/ waiting room and consultation space by patients - young and old - and staff alike.. It was imperative that we strike the right balance between all the uses of the space and appeal to all those who pass through and utilise the area. The artwork has been developed with the Assistant General Manager, Consultant Ophthalmologist,

Royal Crescent Bright as day

I wanted to quickly share with you my newest silkscreen print. Created using block colours, I have produced a new drawing of the Royal Crescent in Bath. One version reminds me of the fifties colour palette - of softly hand-painted photographs and days gone by. The other is vibrant and neon! It's a fresh take on a familar scene. I love both and have various other versions that I've produced whilst playing with colour and design.

Artist of the Month with Bristol 24/7

I am very excited to announce that I have been selected as artist of the month for November, with Bristol 24/7! I have produced a limited-edition colourway of Bristol Harbour. Hand drawn, expressive line - created through the use of pen and ink – describes a section of the harbour. The print encompasses the Create Centre, Underfall Yard, Clifton Suspension Bridge, the ‘Turquoise’ Bridge, Brandon Hill and Cabot Tower. “Once I was happy with the drawing, I drew it onto mark-resist film, which enabled me to create a screen, using the photographic process. This involves coating a screen with a light sensitive film and then exposing the image and screen to UV light. I then carefully cut paper ste
