GA ZE COMPLETELY BE WITHIN MYSELF
Growing up in the Peterborough area, I felt I would need to move away to ‘make it’ as an artist. The type of art I wanted to make didn’t seem like ‘real art’ and I tried for a long time to fit the box of what I thought an artist was. I devised this project to publish work exclusively made by local women and other marginalised genders. To say: it’s OK to make illustration, typography, graphics, prints, crafts. In fact it’s amazing. Make the work that you want to make, for the reasons you want to make it. That’s a radical act of feminism in itself. AMANDA RIGBY, PAPER RHINO

Stepping out and paying attention to the present moment; translating the tangible onto a page through a series of lines, textures and tones. The simple act of putting pen to paper seems to sort everything out; to dissolve a concern or to answer a question. CLARE TURNER
