Six perky, cheeky little Pied Wagtails "dance" in a circle within this composition! The hand carved block has been printed onto wonderfully smooth Okawara Select paper, made in the world famous Japanese Awagami factory, which has become a go-to paper of mine for relief printing. Pied Wagtails have been one of my favourite birds for as long as I can remember. Seeing them scuttle around the pavement in a busy high street and hearing their clear, distinctive call, never fails to cheer me up on an otherwise mundane shopping trip. - So here it is - my "Circle of Wagtails". I hope you love it as much as I did, creating it!

Jane Spink, printmaker, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Jane Spink graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art in 1984 with a degree in Textile Design. After graduating, Jane spent almost twenty years working as a freelance designer of knitted and printed textiles, selling designs through agents in the UK, USA and Japan. Clients during this period included The Burton Group and the prestigious Italian fashion house, Missoni. In 2002, Jane qualified as a teacher of Art and Design and spent the next 16 years teaching Art to children in secondary schools, before leaving to set up her own printmaking studio in 2018. Using the linocut method of relief printing, Jane’s work is largely inspired by her childhood love of nature, wildlife and particularly birds. She favours a combination of strong, bold marks with intricate detail, which often features in her prints. Jane feels that paper choice is key to the success of a printed work, and her prints are frequently made onto handmade papers, where the beauty and textures of the fibres in the paper will perfectly complement the subject of the print.
