Just a week away now from our Discover Original Art Fair in Ivinghoe, which means a heady mixture of excitement and mild panic as we try to get everything ready in time.
I know many followers here live far too far away to visit us in person, but if you are near Ivinghoe next weekend, we’d be absolutely delighted to welcome you at our exhibition.
I’m delighted to introduce you to the artist Jenny Smith-McOnie, who will be showing her sublime work at the Discover Original Art Fair on the 29th & 30th November.
Jenny Smith-McOnie creates original hand-made prints on paper and specialises in the collagraph and drypoint printmaking techniques.
Much of Jenny’s time is spent in Wigtownshire in Dumfries and Galloway, South West Scotland. Her work explores the region’s diverse coastal landscape and she is particularly interested in the rich textures and constantly changing colours that can be seen in the area.
The word ‘collagraph’ is taken from the word ‘collage’. Prints are produced from collaged plates with a highly textured surface, resulting in an embossed print.
The method produces unpredictable results and enables Jenny to create dynamic, textural, vibrant prints.
Talking to Jenny about her work and processes is absolutely fascinating, so if you’re near Ivinghoe over the weekend of November 29th & 30th, don’t miss the opportunity to meet Jenny in person.
