This is my first ever print and I've created a limited number of copies (50) to share with people.
It's an A4 print on Hahnemühle German Etching paper. Beautiful to hold and feel, really thick and holds colour exceptionally.
I initially sketched it in a notepad and then turned it into a digital print with the help of a student in Romania I found online.
I decided to title it "Stories". Each line is a story, an interaction, person event, some lines intersect with others, some do not. Some come together to make shapes, colours, communities, events. Some lines are longer than others, shorter, different shapes. I wanted to capture my sense of all the stories in our lives and also create something that looked appealing too.
At school I was told I was bad at Art, I felt like it wasn't a real subject. As a kid I loved drawing yet I drew up that wasn't cool so I lost touch with my creative side. As I started opening up more about my mental health more and get in touch with my emotions more, I started expressing myself in different ways, Art is one of them. I never thought I'd be into Art and I still don't know if I am, I did this to prove to myself that you can be who you want to be, even an Artist when that felt so impossible.
I sign each one on the back and write a unique message with each one too.
Doesn't come with frame, I suggest a thin black frame with a mount.
Shipping is included in the cost.
