I can't quite believe that it has been a year since my book Paper Lithography was published. Thanks to the support and guidance of the publishers Crowood Press who helped me through the whole business. The book is full of tips and tricks to show you how to make successful paper lithography prints using black and white photocopies and gum arabic. It will take you through the whole process and I even cover the problems you might encounter. It's not an expensive technique to explore, but it is tremendously flexible and can be used straight into a sketchbook, onto fabric or as a stand al ..read more

PRINTFEST 2022

I have been a printmaker for longer than I care to remember and as part of the job of being an artist there is the important task of getting work out there and meeting the public to explain what I do. Printfest in Ulverston is the only artist led printmaking event in the country and I was lucky enough to be selected for the 2020 show. Well we all know what happened then, but after a couple of postponements it took place this year. 45 printmakers showing every conceivable printmaking process gathered at the Coronation Hall, Ulverston to talk about printmaking and show art. I have to admit ..read more

I have new followers on Instagram and I am beginning to get out & about, getting my collagraphs into Printfest, SGFA Annual Open Exhibition and stocking galleries with new work. So I thought it would be the right moment to introduce myself and my work...so hello, I'm Sue Brown! I have been a printmaker for as long as I can remember and have been making collagraphs for around 25 years. Still learning...! I have a shed in my garden where I draw extensively developing ideas for my printmaking with the help of Iris.    I am inspired by process as much as nature. My work sp ..read more

It is a very busy time at the moment. There appears to be an explosion of artistic events after the giant pause of 2020.  I am looking forward to heading off to the Lake District, Ulverston to be precise, to take part in Printfest. This has been an annual festival of printmaking in the past. But of course, like so many events has been postponed twice. Finally it is back up and running and is full of talented printmakers. I know I am looking forward to chatting about printmaking to anyone who cares to listen. I will be on stand 38 if you are in Ulverston for the bank holiday weekend? If ..read more

Same Sea, Different Boat was started in Mid May 2020 to give a creative voice to our lock down lives. It has come along way with nearly 600 printed/stitched squares stitched into a quilt straddling 7 panels. It has become a social documentation of our shared experiences...and of course this pandemic has not gone away, it is still effecting our day to day lives.  It is now time to draw the project to a close and finish off panel 7. If you have a printed square waiting to be stitched, send the finished piece to me or a least get it in the post  by Christmas Eve. Cath and I will be put ..read more

Same Sea, Different Boat was started in Mid May to give a creative voice to our lock down lives.

With this in mind, Lousie, Liske and I have created spaces in the quilt for more of you to join in. How to become part of the bigger picture is outlined below. Thank you to all of you who are part of this beautiful piece of work and for your ..read more

FIRST WORKSHOP AT the yard:ARTspace AFTER LOCK DOWN
Sue Brown Printmaker
by Sue Brown

It is so good to be back! The 14 August saw the first workshop at the yard:ARTspace, Cheltenham since March. Every precaution was taken, cleaning,  creating space and reducing the numbers of participants. I hope I kept the spirit of the yard with an inspiring display of work. A new edition is my favourite new thing, the Events Canopy. Set up in the yard itself creating a usable out door space. Then we were set for 3 days of creating exciting sketch book pages. Resists with embossing powder, oil pastel mono printing, ink, bleach and of course my statement technique gum arabic tran ..read more

The deadline has been postponed as the lockdown continues. But for those of you who have one ready, but due to one thing or another have not posted it yet, we are leaving room in the quilt for squares coming in their own time. I thought I would let you see how Louise, Liske and I will be putting the quilt together. We have had over 400 gorgeous art works sent, so a great big thank you for joining in. I start work with a coffee, crucial in my opinion. The squares then need to be trimmed and finger pressed into a square. I use this right angle drawn onto stiffening to help with folding, then ..read more

We all know how weird its been. Time has passed at a very strange pace and we all think that we haven't done that much in the last 3 months.  So now is a good time to take stock and look at exactly what we have all been up to.  I don't mean a tidy up or a sort out. I am also not counting cake making, new recipes and the shampooing of my lounge rug and the cleaning behind my fridge in this audit. I have laid out the last month and a halves worth of stuff made, experiments tried and half completed ideas. Lets kick off with the brilliant project started off by Catherine Kingzett  ..read more
