Hello and welcome to my visual sketchbook: to log all the art ventures I immerse myself in. Snippets of my work can be found on here along with classes I teach, exhibitions I am inspired by and anything that generally makes me smile.

Please beware I am not the best and 'once in a blue moons' are plentiful here. Have fun looking and feel free to drop me a line with your comments. You can if you so wish follow me on Facebook Angela Lai Yen - Printmaker and Textile Artist.

Bye for now.

Textures and Embossing

I've had a lovely couple of evenings recently teaching my usual mono print class and I must say I'm a little sad its come to an end. Everyone was a little nervous to begin with but once I demonstrated some simple techniques, everyone got stuck in and there was no stopping them. There was definitely a love for textures and embossing in the air. 

I was very impressed with the work produced, just take a look and enjoy.

Rainy print day.

With no sewing workshops today what better way to spend a rainy Sunday than being in the print studio, getting inky fingers. Odd but I love the sound of rolling out inks - that static sticky sound that printmakers smile at, well I do.

Hopefully some new prints for you all to see soon.
