News Release: Immediate Release April 2014
This May, Concrete Wardrobe are showcasing the work of Edinburgh based printmaker Jenni Douglas. Douglas uses traditional printmaking techniques to create contemporary prints and gifts for the home.
Her inspiration comes from her home city of Edinburgh. From the old town architecture of skinny tenements and stepped rooftops, to the beauty of parks and gardens, the city continually fascinates, and provides her greatest stimulus.
Douglas is passionate about traditional printmaking techniques. All of her designs start life as a hand drawing, and are then developed into a lino or screen print. The handmade element of craft is important to Douglas. She explains.
“I love the unique marks and textures which hand printing creates, and I want to make pieces which retain a sense of these traditional processes and a hand made feel.”
On display at Concrete Wardrobe this May are a selection of prints, cards, mugs, coasters, bags and tea towels. Of her exhibition at Concrete Wardrobe, Co-owner James Donald enthused.
“Jenni Douglas is a true Edinburgh artist. Having grown up in the city she has a unique perspective and a definitive style. We are very pleased to be hosting her debut exhibition at Concrete Wardrobe.”
The work of Jenni Douglas is on display at Concrete Wardrobe from 1st to 31st May 2014.
Concrete Wardrobe is open Monday to Saturday 11am to 7pm. (Sunday 12 - 5pm.)
