Under the Sea

Under the Sea | Collage

I found a drypoint print of a whale that wasn’t perfect, so I chopped it up and collaged it with some paste papers and discarded prints in the scrap box.


collage of radishes

Radishes | Collage

Collage made in sketchbook as trial for lino cut. Hand coloured papers and printed off cuts.


collage of duck

Coffee Break

Taking a break while we decorate the Christmas tree.

All summer we’ve pulled and eaten delicious beetroot from the vegetable garden. This reminder in my sketchbook is a collage made with jelly printed papers.

Balancing Hippo

Balancing Hippo | Collage
