  • About this print

    There’s a bush in my garden from the depths of which a few House Sparrows shout out every morning, but it feels a thinner, lonelier chatter than it should be; House Sparrows have been on the UK Red List since 2002 because of a huge drop in their numbers.

    I wanted my print to evoke something of the vibrancy and exuberance these archetypal “small brown birds” bring to our gardens and neighbourhoods with their chaotic, jabbering, community babble - if we let then. But it felt right to include forget-me-nots too.

  • 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
