I took a little time out from parenting duties today and went to a fabulous open studio. The beautiful and extremely talented French illustrator Magali Dincher creates limited edition colograph and screenprinted artworks using an old fashioned print press. Her studio is aptly named beau est mien.
I first saw Magali’s work a couple of years ago at the Fremantle Art Centre Bazaar and being a bit of a francophile I fell in love immediately. I have been dreaming of owning one of her prints ever since. This year I decided I should treat myself – as it’s my 30th birthday year and all – and I bought a romantic picture of terraced houses lining the streets of Paris.
Magali offers printing workshops in her studio where you can learn first-hand the techniques of colograph, screenprinting and linocut. Something I’m going to put on my things-I-really-want-to-do list.if you liked this post, you may also like:/span>
