During lockdown I have been working on lots of new things, one of which is this print ‘City Songbirds’, a handcoloured screen print. These are in an edition of 14, each one is screen printed by Dantes Press (in our studio) and then I individually colour each print in with watercolours, which is quite a slow but enjoyable process!
The print was inspired by the sounds of birds during lockdown. As I don’t have a garden and the only options for getting outside to green spaces were very busy local parks, the sights and sounds of birds singing was one of the small pleasures and reminders of freedom we normally take so much for granted in the U.K.
