I love seeing print studios so I thought I'd share this with you -
"I like it; it's a real reflection of me"
says Christchurch printmaker Ben Reid of his Sumner studio/garage.
Between helping to look after his baby daughter, Isabella,
Ben works downstairs on his meticulously crafted dry-point etchings.
After graduating in 2005 from the CPIT School of Art and Design,
Ben has produced art reflecting his passion for the great outdoors.
He recently took a 55-hour boat ride in rough sub-Antarctic seas to Campbell Island,
and the wildlife he encountered will be the subject of a new body of prints.
"I would always draw and paint, but when I came across printmaking,
there was virtually no turning back.
It doesn't matter how much printmaking you do, the joy of it never goes away."
