Sweetie Jars

Sweetie Jars

Screen Print on Somerset paper
26cm x 26cm

I live in a seaside area of Edinburgh called Portobello. When I had children, I found I was very limited in where I could go and what I could draw - I used to go to far flung places, and now I could barely get out to the shops! But then I remembered a famous quote by the artist William Turner who said 'there's a sketch at every turn'. He meant that inspiration could be found anywhere, and I began to see there were endless subjects right on my doorstep.

This image is of the window of an old shop that used to sell sweeties in paper bags. I liked the pattern of the lids and fact that everything was the same but different.

Please note that this is a handmade print and there may be slight variations in the edition. Each piece is unique!
