Sarah Emily Edmonds of Cardiff

With a whiff of nostalgia, I invited Sarah to get involved in the bike art trail project for Cardiff Cycle Festival 2012.

Sarah has simply blossomed as a creative since we were sketching out early artworks in Monmouth Comprehensive sixth form studio. She certainly ‘likes to make stuff’ and currently produces letter press prints, gorgeous illustrations and bound books.

With a penchant for poetry and literature, Sarah has a diverse sweep of inspiration and it is surely her visible passion for words that gives her a unique artistic fabrication. I’m a massive fan!

Have a look at some more of Sarah’s creations here: http://www.textilesketches.wordpress.com

And, if that has motivated an appetite for print making, why not give it a bash at Papergirl’s Easter workshop.

Lucy Driscoll

Lucy Driscoll of Windsor

I first met Lucy in the depths of last year’s stubborn winter on a residency at Arteles Creative Centre, Finland. We toiled together for one month producing scandanavian inspired art works, discovering an eclectic collection of 80’s musical delights and devouring whole salmon with all manor of pickled edibles.

Lucy oozes charm with a good eye for a vintage bargain and upmost talent for paper cut illustrations. She has kindly agreed to show some of her work in this year’s Cardiff Cycle Festival. If I know Lucy, vintage cycling literature will be an inspiration along with a love of her own two wheels.
