  • About this print

    ‘Blackthorn’ is the first in a series of solar plate etchings focusing on the hedgerow. The portrait format reflects the idea that each print will be a portrait of a plant or tree. The Prussian blue gives the unintentional appearance of a cyanotype.

    Hedgerow also reflects my interest in environmental issues: the way that hedgerows were ripped out in the 1950s to make way for intensive farming which subsequently led to loss of habitat and biodiversity. As a climate activist I have been involved with events and discussions concerned with the negative impact of climate breakdown. However, my intension wherever I can is to focus on the positive. To discover hedgerows and photograph them in all their splendour.

  • Endless Forms, Most Beautiful

    A new bestiary and herbarium for at risk species by artists from Northern Print.

    “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to support visits, new printmaking and school’s programme for this project.

    Northern Print artists bring together traditional printmaking and the natural world with a series of new prints highlighting the diversity of species that are categorised as ‘at risk’.

    The ‘endless forms’ include marine life; plants; birds; insects and mammals with many familiar and much-loved species as well as less known and intriguing creatures that have captured the imagination and hearts of Northern Print’s artists.

    This exhibition of 45 new prints has been made following a series of visits to our region’s natural history collections and habitats and represents the tiniest tip of the iceberg of our natural world under threat.

    The artwork includes a range of approaches and printmaking processes – including heritage craft skills also deemed at risk including letterpress and mould-made papers
