Oh! It’s been absolutely ages… Time flew and condensed and dragged and became a thing of wonder. I realise I’ve not posted anything at all for over a year! But I’m super happy to announce that the Victoria and Albert Museum have made a short film about my linocut and monoprint process, and it captures the dreamy mood of creativity very well.

Filmmaker Marissa Keating and cameraman Michael Jones spent a lovely morning in my house, filming me and interviewing me about my process.

They tiptoed around and drank my tea (Iron Goddess of Mercy, no less) and made me feel calm and at ease. Then we walked to the studio, East London Printmakers, to film more printing action using the big beautiful cast iron presses there.

The music was composed especially for the film by Steve Baker (www.stevebakermusic.com), who was inspired by my image of Cassiopeia (the girl looking up at the night sky), which I would love to make into an animation… one day… when I find a spare moment…!

I felt very privileged to watch music being composed, in real time, but I guess it’s a similar alchmical mystery that happens when images are created too.

Anyway, to watch the film, please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltiskoXIK2I
