|Strawberry Art Patch, Screen Prints||My love of silkscreen printing can be traced back to an art lesson at school where I learnt how to screen print onto fabric. I studied art up until I started university and several years later, following a career in IT and starting a family, I rediscovered my love for silkscreen printing. I now have my own business selling artwork, drawing inspiration from flowers and vintage objects. Every print is handmade in my studio using a traditional screen print method of ‘hand cut paper stencils’. The paint is then hand pulled through a screen print frame to build up layers of colour onto the image.|
