A memory of Venice in a mini print

Here’s my little print for this year’s International Print Exchange, run by Derby printmakers Green Door Printmaking Studios.

Participants send an edition of ten original prints to them, the studio keeps two, (one for sale and one for the archives), and everyone participating receives 8 back from printmakers all over the world. It’s such a lovely thing to do, albeit challenging because of the small size, 10 x 10cm. I definitely need new specs now.

I made this to remind me of our trip to Venice this year for my birthday.

A little print, for a very big birthday.

'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.'

  1. Lovely print .. and a reminder of your birthday too. : ) What a nice idea the print exchange is. Do they have an exhibition or a fair, or. Is it postal only?
