This print is the first of my current lockdown series and it is all about those strange first few days of 2020 when all I could do was sit quietly and try to come to terms with it all - as always I'm the big eared character - this time in the top left. The garden was just beginning to come to life - the daffodils, crown imperials and fritillaries were emerging and Marple was supervising it all, providing a strong steady presence and one that was very much needed.

I always start with drawing from observation and then return to the studio to work on the drawing - I've included the drawing in the pictures so you can see part of my process.

This print is printed on Japanese paper. I feel transparency and fragility suits the subject perfectly and it is very dark blue in colour. I do hope you like it !

I print everything from my studio using a small wooden hand press and my etching press. The finished result is unique and original with no two prints being alike.

My name is Sam,  I'm a printmaker working from my studio in rural Northamptonshire. I've recently left London after 22 years and am now enjoying the fresh air, open skies and wildlife of my new life in the country. Miss Marple my ever faithful mini dachshund loves it too! 

When I'm not making work/ running workshops / coaching from my studio then I'm travelling around the UK and Europe with my sketchbook.
