Alison was one of the very first Artists to join us at Wonky Wheel, Alison works in many different printmaking styles and is an illustrator.
In March we picked up some fresh work from Alison that sadly people have not seen yet. So we would like to share some our favourites along with background to the Artwork.
To kick off we have “Ede’s Lemon” This piece of work was originally produced for a mini-print show where Alison had to produce artwork 10cm square or smaller. This piece of artwork was inspired by a trip to Kettles Yard in Cambridge. Its from the house curated by Jim Ede. In one of the downstairs rooms there is a large pewter plate which always has a fresh lemon on it.
Alison would quite often see Greater Spotted Woodpeckers in Milton Country Park every day when she would take Ollie her beautiful dog out for his walk. I love the detail that Alison has been able to capture in the branch that the woodpecker is sitting on. This piece of Artwork would be a beautiful welcoming piece of artwork in a hallway.
This is a limited edition drypoint print.
This tea towel is one of my favours from Alison home collection, it also allows Alison artwork designs to be used in a versatile way, from Tea Towels, Cards, Coasters and Small Prints which make a great momentum to take home as from a day trip to Finchingfield. Alison loves the quote from William Morris “have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”
Another piece of artwork by Alison that sadly many people may have not seen yet. The Vessels series of prints are inspired by the ceramics of Katharina Klug. This is two of the ten impressions designed and printed by Alison.
This print is another of my favours that arrived in mid-March, the reason I like this print so much is the movement of the different jars and the texture of the paper used by the Artist. Alison wanted to produce a print that would look good in a dining room, kitchen or restaurant and was experimenting with combining drypoint and relief printing to achieve flat areas of colour rather than adding watercolour.
