A is for Antelope is a limited edition print by Clare Halifax. An Alphabet series using animals in their natural habitats to create a patterned background to the letter.

The process involved in producing a print starts with an observational pen drawing of the subject being portrayed. Once this image is finished, it is then scanned at a high resolution and taken into photoshop. Here Clare will produce the different colours featured in the print through a series of layers with the any patterns that are presented being created especially for the piece. Once all the layers are achieved the next stage is producing the screen print. Each layer of colour is exposed onto a silkscreen by using a photo sensitive emulsion, creating a stencil on the screen. Using a screen printing bed that secures the screen in place, each colour is printed by pushing ink through the screen and registering it in the appropriate place, layering each layer until the final finished outcome seen here.

Clare Halifax graduated from Loughborough University with a BA hons in Printed Textile Design. This was followed by an MA in Multi Disciplinary Printmaking from UWE which saw her work develop into Limited Edition Prints. Focusing on cityscapes, landscapes, botanicals and animals. Within each piece of work, design, pattern and colour, play an important part, adding depth and decoration to create a unique overall effect.  Clients have included V and A Museum, ‘Coast’ Magazine, Liberty’s, Tate Online, Farrow and Ball, John Lewis and the Berkley Group. Clare currently resides in London where she continues to be influenced by her everyday environment.
