Sheffield International Artist Book Prize

DSCN2168  Finally got my catalogue in the post, thought it was never going to get here!

I’ve already done a post on the work I entered for this competition but the exhibition for it has kicked off now and I thought it warranted another post. I’m so pleased with how the wok turned out in the catalogue…I’m in a catalogue! 😲Oh my days, I’m such a dweeb!

Anyway, If you’re in Sheffield at all, the exhibition is on right now until 30th November at Bank Street Arts. For more info or if you’re interested in purchasing one of the catalogues head over to the website here.

Absolutely fantastic collection of work from all the artists that contributed, go check it out, you wont be sorry.

Also, let me know what you thought of the work either by commenting here or drop me an email.

Hope your all well. x

Artist Book

DSCN1852DSCN1855DSCN1850DSCN1856DSCN1848 DSCN1851

The sunshine has come to an end so this is what i have been working on through the rain. Nice to be able to finally get back into the swing of things again. I’ve been attempting to create this artist book for a while. It’s my entry into the Sheffield International Artist Book Prize. Hopefully I’ll have more luck with this competition that I did with the last one I entered, but that’s just the way it goes sometimes. As I mentioned, I’ve been working on this for a while but i was completely stumped for ages as to what direction to go in for it. Also, everytime I came up with an idea and went to work on it, my hands had other thoughts and nothing turned out the way I wanted it to. But I’m exceptionally pleased with this piece. The text inside reads: Love can sometimes be magic.

But Magic can sometimes just

be an illusion.

I’ve done prints of the text before but I loved it so much that i decided to use it for the book too. Let me know your thoughts on it, I’d love to know what you think if you could spare the time.

Take care,

Thought Id share some photographs of my sketchbooks with you while I’m working on some new projects. In the selection I have sketchbooks that I used on my textile course. looking at different inspirations and experimenting with textures and pattern in fabrics as well as surface pattern. All knit work and drawings are my own, there are cut outs from magazines that I have in there that show where my inspiration came from as well as my own photographs of my surrounding woods. Ive also put in some photographs of my first cut-out book I did, as well as another sketchbook that went with it along the theme of Japan and Nature. I’ve then added my sketchbook that was part of my illustration degree. It was to create a reference book in our own style. The work I’ve shown from it is once again my own that I incorporated, also thought I’d do some close ups of my typography. Enjoy! x
