We’re delighted that Sarah Targett has joined our roster. Sarah is a screen print whiz kid and works full time as an Artist and screen print dynamo at Marshfield Screen Print Studios. Sarah studied fine art at Falmouth School of Arts in Cornwall. Living in the countryside around Bath, her beautiful illustrations often depict nature she see’s around her, particularly birds, and often her designs convey a sense of humour and cheekiness.
The process of screen printing is a labour-intensive and slow technique. First the image is designed or hand-drawn before being embedded onto a mesh by shining a UV light onto a light-sensitive emulsion. This hardens the image onto the mesh and the rest of the emulsion is washed away. Paint colours are then pulled through the mesh in different layers, one colour at a time. It’s a messy and intense job but well worth the fun and we just love these limited editions and can’t wait to see more
