This simple lino cut is my Christmas card design – a warm red jumper with holly motif. I love wool, woolly jumpers and knitting. As I have just resumed knitting a jumper which I started knitting over 6 years ago I was inspired to put a festive woolly on my Christmas card.
I have been obsessed by the Dockyard cranes for some time. ‘Cranescape’ is one of my favourites. I have recently been working on an etching which combines the cranes with naval ships. ‘Daring’ is a work in progress – it has a long way to go. Etchings take time, there are many processes to go through (etching the line, aquatint, adding textures and so on) and you don’t know exactly what you are getting until you take it out of the acid and make a print. ‘Daring’ may have a number of reincarnations but i will get there – watch this space.
