Turning paintings into prints

Jane Francis – “I’ve recently taken the exciting step of having some of my artwork professionally copied and made into prints and greeting cards, hopefully making my work more accessible to a larger audience.”

Has anybody else had experience with turning their artwork into prints and/or cards? Did you manage to reach out to a wider audience; what were your experiences with quality of prints, and how did having this done effect your practice as an artist?

You’ll find Jane’s prints and cards at Maker, 2a High Street Inverkeithing, and My Cherry Pie at 301 High Street Kirkcaldy.

Ann’s Doodles – Intricate Details and Patterns

FlyLittleRockhopper2-348-480-480-80“The intricate details and patterns in my drawings come directly from the doodles I spent years covering all my books in school with. I use the thinest black pen I can find, and doodle for hours every day in the quietest place I can find. My technique has developed to include pens, Ink, pencils, watercolours and lately acrylic painted dots and spirals.”

Ann’s Doodles is an artist who has built a well-deserved reputation on her fantastically detailed and imaginative original drawings, prints, colouring books and book illustrations, all beloved by her fans! Inverkeithing Arts Initiative are delighted that she has agreed to join us for our latest INVERKEITHING FESTIVE MAKERS MARKET on Saturday 12th December 11AM – 4.30PM
