New works in progress

My studio building was badly damaged during the recent hail storm, but some good has come out of it, as long overdue repairs are currently being carried out. In the meantime, I've been working on some small linocuts (some of which are pictured above). Now that my room is nearly finished (and looking its best ever - the builders have done a fantastic job) I am looking forward to editioning a back-log of work in an environment that is completely dry and leak-free for the first time since I moved into the building.
