IN the Brook Gallery, in the fabulously named Devon village of Budleigh Salterton, I came across some great prints by North London artist Lisa Takahashi. I wanted these cyclists on my wall to look at every day. Lucky I didn’t buy it as their wasn’t room for so much as an anorexic mouse on the crammed train back to Paddington, it was standing, and shallow breathing, room only. Thinking of the riders sweeping down the hill, gripping the road on the curve, in the green of the countryside helped!
Pictures like this were what made me want to try lino-printing myself. Now I want to venture into bigger prints and (gasp) maybe even colour.
