Roll up, roll up……all the fun of the (print) fairs

And on to this weekend. I will have a stand at Sheffield Print Fair, at the Millennium Gallery. I am so excited and a teeny bit nervous into the bargain. Some of my favourite printmakers will be there and it will be lovely to meet them, while wondering what on earth I am doing there! Well, they did let me in…

SPF LOGO final

I had a lovely time last Saturday at Dot Spread Print Fair in Leeds. It was probably the most low budget fair I have done, and the first one in a room off a bar where bands play, but I managed to make some good sales so it was certainly worth it! Everyone was lovely and they had a DJ playing awesome music, with real vinyl…you know, those round black things with grooves where sound comes out of. I confess that I danced quite a lot of the day. I made a little video and you can see it here.

'Printmaker Nancy Power's work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources. Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process. Nancy uses the reduction method of lino printmaking; carving away at just one block for each consecutive colour to reveal the final image. By inking from dark to light, as opposed to the more traditional light to dark, Nancy's work has engaging depth and colour layering.'
