I recently had some work returned to me from a gallery where it was being shown. The gallery is in the process of changing premises. To make it easier for them and to make sure nothing got lost or damaged I picked my work up before the move happened. Amongst the things they had were some of my squiggly hearts. There were only eight left out of fifteen originally printed – which is really good. With Valentine’s day just around the corner, I thought it was a good chance to add some more items to my folksy shop and see how they do. I put them up yesterday and have already sold three! The cards were originally printed in gold, red, black and green.
I love doodling. Every little piece of paper I have lying around ends up with some squiggle or other drawn on it. I find that when I am just doodling with out thinking the ideas can just flow, its a mind set thing perhaps. The heart was the result of one of these and has been a very popular designs. The hearts are mounted as cards, but I think they look equally good (if not better) framed and hung on the wall.
I have also put up some other hand printed cards. These were inspired by one of my favourite views at my Aunt’s house in Scotland.
