A Passion For Printmaking

During the first lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic, I took the opportunity to turn the art hobby that I loved into my career and job I adore.  At first, I wasn't sure what direction my art would take, using the time to move away from the acrylics and oils that I was familiar and comfortable with in order to explore other mediums and styles.  As soon as I rediscovered printmaking, I was hooked.  I combine my love of animals and nature with the joy and peace that carving brings in order to explore my connection to the world around me.

Thank you for your interest in my work and for supporting a small and independent art business like mine.  I truly appreciate it!

Proud to be co-owner of the new
Croft Court, Ross on Wye

Owned and run by two local artists, Tara Slater of TLSKiwi and Julie Cannon of Watercolour Puddles, the new gallery and shop will feature both their work and also the work of a wide variety of artisan makers from the surrounding area and beyond. It will be an ideal place to pick up some art for your own home, a fabulous gift for someone else or a special reminder of your visit to Ross on Wye.

Julie Cannon, of Watercolour Puddles, paints the birds and creatures that live on her doorstep, in her studio overlooking the forest, adding vintage finds as perches and props to bring out their personalities or giving them a steampunk twist. She loves anything quirky, retro children’s toys, vintage labels and nature and these all appear in her fabulous watercolour compositions.

Tara Slater, of TLSKiwi, is inspired by the natural world and a love for animals and carves images in both lino for printmaking and into layers of acrylic paint, creating unique relief carvings. She also hand prints onto fabric and paints in oils over acrylic and digital watercolour. Tara has a passion for hand-printing, handmade and small local businesses.

One of the founding principles for Urchins Gallery is to support the work and livelihoods of independent artists and to promote Ross on Wye as a brilliant place to visit for tourists looking to find something unique. Both Tara and Julie love the independent shops that are a feature of Ross on Wye town and hope to help attract more visitors to the town.
