One of the many prizes on offer at the SSA Annual Exhibition 2014 was The Southfield Prize of £300 worth of printed material. This was awarded to Elaine Allison for her work: ‘Family Tree – Birch, Scot’s Pine, Rowan, Cedar of Lebanon, Oak and Spruce’.
‘I was delighted to win this prize at the last SSA exhibition. Southfield Printers in Eskbank gave me £300 worth of materials and I chose to use it to set myself up in my studio with some printmaking equipment, which uses Goccopro digital screens. These are very fine mesh screens, which give excellent detail on small scale images.
Here are some of my first prints made using them.’
