Nova Scotia

For my fan in Nova Scotia

Recent monotypes

I have been sorting some recent prints out today for selection by The Biscuit Factory in January. More to come.... I enjoy the painterly approach I can take in this form of printmaking which is a complete contrast to the more precise stitching I am usually doing.

My daughter Alice Pattullo who is an illustrator based in Brighton excelled herself this year by designing and making all her presents. These are some of the ones I received. She is keen to accept commissions for product design so if you want to get her to design something for you then have a look at her website to get a taste of what she can do. www.alicepattullo,com

Sewing Equipment

The North East is covered in deep deep snow which means you have to amuse yourself close to home and within walking distance. Yesterday I had a good morning at Northern Print making some screen prints on paper and fabric of some drawings I have been doing of sewing machines. I didn't like the finished pieces much but I love the details do will probably cut them up.
