Having studied both printed textile design and printmaking, Clare Halifax‘s screen prints combine her interest in textiles with her highly detailed drawings of architectural landscapes around Britain. Her limited edition screen prints are often printed in just one or two colors, and illustrate the contrast between gray “concrete jungle[s],” and green, inner city parks and botanical gardens.

London-based illustrator Alice Pattullo produces quaint but vibrant screen prints that explore “British traditions, folklore and superstitions.” One blue and pink print illustrates the art of jam making with some sound advice: “Always make your preserves in the moon’s prime to make the most of your yield.”

Chuck Sperry creates an ongoing screen printed wood panel series of “contemporary-classical muses.” His use of lush oil-based inks in colorful patterned overlays result in magnificent flower-power portraits of women inspired by “the spirit of the modern rock poster, graffiti, and the utopian ethos of 1960’s psychedelia.”
