I am an artist based in Bath, but in love with buildings all over the world. I work in many differernt mediums, but adore the crisp, neat, clean nature of screen printing. All my images are hand drawn (not from photo shop) and then exposed onto a silk screen using photographic paint. The paper is hand cut, and the colours mixed by me. I hand print each individual image in the studio and only do a small print run of each subject, normally less than 35.
The Iconic Buildings series of screen prints brings together my love of architecture and colour - I hope you enjoy the result. I have been working on this theme for about a year, there are 18 buildings so far in the series - with more to follow. They look wonderful when grouped all together in simple white frames.
My new cushion collection combines a passion for printing, with a great interest in interior design. I needed some bold, bright & cheerful cushions, but couldn't find what I wanted - so I got to work in the studio. I can only print 25 cushions at a time, so they are little art works. I am bursting with ideas for these, so please come back to Big House Devon again soon to see the new designs.
Ten years ago I left my London/New York based marketing job & moved to Ilfracombe, North Devon. We bought a big old house to renovate and I realised my dream of becoming an artist. So our company is named after the house that inspired my husband to make furniture & me to paint!
