Dorset Arts week 2018

I haven't really  blogged here in a while, however with the start of 2018 i thought that maybe i should rectify this, especially with so many exciting things in the pipe line. Firstly here is on for the diary, 26th May - 10th of June 2018 for the first time i will be opening my studio for Dorset arts week.

This will be a chance to visit and see  how i make my prints, say hello and dare i say buy some original art work. There will be rare prints available, a big exhibition of both my printmaking work and some of my illustrations. There will be the chance to buy some work at a very good price, some special offers on certain prints. so come on down to Dorset and visit, it is a great event with lots of super work on show.

27th June 2016

Exhibitions, exhibitions, exhibitions.

I am delighted to be exhibiting in three exhibitions over the summer, here is information on the first.

It is at the Assembly House in Norwich, at the Novierre Gallery.

The private view is on the 8th July, and it runs over most of the summer.

27th June 2016

Gallery Nine exhibition.

The second exhibition that i am part of is at Gallery Nine in Bath. The Private view is on 1ST July, and again it runs over the summer.

27th June 2016

Grosvenor at the Brook

The final exhibition that i am part of is at the Brook Gallery in Burleigh Salterton. It has a selection of work inspired by the Grosvenor School of prints. The private view is on 14th July and it runs until August 28th.

2nd November 2015

Hello new studio

The year has almost run away with me and now having spent the last month moving house and unpacking, i can finally begin to turn my head back to work. The picture is back in the old studio, in our old house. I now have a temporary studio, the grand plan being a new studio in the garden at some point next year.

I am a little nervy now trying to begin to think about printing again in a new studio and in a new location.

Luckily i do have a few prints in hand to start off with. Do keep an eye on my page to see what comes next. 

22nd January 2015

New Year New Print

Here you have a new print underway, one of four which i am producing for the London Original Print Fair in April. I have quite a tight deadline with these, especially as this one is the largest for many a year!

22nd January 2015

I really should blog a bit more....

I seem to be rather slack as a 'blogger'( no spelling mistake here!), so here is another one for you all, my design rough for the next print i am working on. As well as this blog do check out my Facebook page 'Paul Cleden Illustrator Printmaker' at times i am better at updating that one.

1st December 2014

All Original Here.

I have of late visited galleries and other events and discovered work being sold as 'Original Prints' and merely being a reproduction of a painting or other such image, mostly as a giclée. I have no problems with people buying this work, as perhaps the only way to afford a specific image, but it becomes increasingly frustrating to see them advertised as 'Original Prints'

'At it’s simplest, we define an original print as an artwork that has been manually printed by the artist (or with some processes, printed under the artist’s direct supervision). It is not a reproduction. The artist will have created an image on block, stone, plate or screen from which the final print is produced. They will choose the paper that the image is printed on and will determine the edition size of the print (the number of copies printed). Once printed, the artist will then number and sign each of the prints.'

This a direct copy from St Jude's web site, not an original but a copy, just like so many artworks claiming to be 'Original prints"

All my works are Original Lino prints or Original Collographs, no copies or any other reproduction methods. They are all hand printed and each piece is an original artwork created by my self. All to often an artwork advertised as "original print' is merely a copy of a painting or historical image. You will find none of that here.

19th November 2014

Peloton finished

Here is the end result, all ready and waiting. There will be another new image very soon as well. You wait for one new print to come along, and then two come along at once!

13th November 2014


With the first three colour ready, i only have one more to add before this is ready. I am just waiting for the last colour to dry.

13th November 2014

Illustration example

It has been really good to return to produce an illustration, hopefully i will be producing more in the near future.

10th September 2014

Art Angel cards

I am so pleased with these new cards from Art Angels, they are the start of a series called 'Momentum' these three are the introduction set. They are now available from all good card shops! They will also be prints very soon.

22nd July 2014

'Sprint' to the summer

With the Commonwealth games starting tomorrow here is my latest print design, only proofed at this stage but I am very happy with it so far.

1st May 2014

Block number 2

Block number two offset and marked up ready to cut,i even had time to bake some banana bread in the gaps while ink was drying. A good afternoons work so far.

30th April 2014

The London Original Print Fair

I had such a great few days in London last week, it was just so exciting to see my work hanging in the Royal Accademy.

Not only that in the same section as me was Sir Peter Blake, Marc Chagall, Barbara Hepworth, Norman Ackroyd, Chris Orr, Howard Hodgkin..........need i go on . Just amazing.

30th April 2014

Cycling print begins

I am back in the studio this week after the extraordinary time spent in London at the London Original Print Fair. Another superb thing to come from last week was a meeting with the excellent folk at Art Angel cards. This is the first of three designs which will become a collection of designs for a set of cards. Each will be die cut and printed on two sides with movement and figures as a theme. Watch this space!

27th February 2014

Platform Talk

I have just proofed this print, and as i type my fingers are still inky. I must say that i am very pleased with it at this point. It is another large print and one which will be exhibited at the London Original Print Fair this year.It is great to proof a print and be so pleased, no doubt i will soon see lots of things i would like to change.

13th February 2014

Ski Cross Proof

I have just proofed the 'Ski Cross' print, i want to live with it for a while to see if i need to add or change any part of it. Mean while i am working on two new prints in the underground set i started last year.

6th February 2014

Ski Cross

With the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics tomorrow afternoon, it seems very apt to be proofing this image. the extra image from the series of prints based on the sports represented at the Olympics.

5th February 2014

Brook Street Gallery

So good to visit the wonderful Brook Street Gallery Yesterday, and it is smashing to be exhibiting there now, this has been quite a year so far for galleries. The other exciting development is the be exhibiting on the Brook Street Gallery's stand at the London Original Print Fair, in the Royal Academy in April. 

31st January 2014

Ski Cross print

A new print ready to start, this week i have been working on a set of ideas, this is the one which has taken the lead, and now the first block is cut ready to get on with on Monday.

18th January 2014

Private view Norwich

I had a wonderful day in Norwich on Thursday, the main reasons for the visit was the attend the private view of the Winter exhibition at the Noverre Gallery. I am exhibiting twelve images all with a winter theme.

Norwich is a wonderful city, well worth a visit, as is the Noverre gallery at the Assembly House.

all in all it was a splendid day,I even managed to get a great deal on first class rail travel, which I would also thoroughly recommend, especially after a day on ones feet!

18th January 2014

A smashing start to 2014

So far 2014 is proving to be a splendid year with not one but two new galleries to exhibit in. Firstly Cambridge Contemporary Arts have asked if I can exhibit with them, a gallery that I have had my eye on, and then Hornseys the Gallery in Ripon have purchased two copies of Road Race to exhibit. Hornseys is another great gallery that I have had my eye on for a while now. So all in all a wonderful start to the new year.

25th November 2013

Here is the design so far for my next lino, i am looking to include far more texture within this one, just a little more to do on the colours, and the composition.....nothing much then!

12th September 2013

16th August 2013

The Mere Gallery

I am really pleased to be in a new gallery. It is The Mere Gallery, on lake Windermere, in Bowness   

This is a gallery that specialises in printmakers, which is great, and is the furthest north that my work is exhibited.

i may one day get that far to have a look!

9th August 2013

Christmas in August.

It can be a weird thing being an artist, on a hot August day, i have just finished re-printing this image for a charity Christmas card. 
Just so the supermarkets don't tempt you later this month with their Christmas offerings, this design will be available to buy from the Pallant House Bookshop Gallery at a time a little nearer Christmas with all the proceeds going to St Wilfreds Hospice in Chichester. Who can be the first person to send me a card with my own design on?!

15th July 2013

So here is a page from my sketch book which hopefully will be of interest. Thanks for the kind e-mails  i have recived recently from lovely people who like what i am doing. More blogs will follow!

12th December 2012

Christmas Days

 With only a week or so to the big day here is a poem to celebrate. Hope you like it.




Frosty nights with glistening trees

Lights in windows; snow on the breeze

Excited hopes that sparkle bright

Someone special will arrive tonight

Christmas Eve silent and still

Stockings dangle ready to fill

Jewel-like glints adorn the tree

The scent of needles given free

Excited whispers slowly cease

As sleep begins its night time peace 

Dreams arrive, full of hopes

Of racing sledges on snowy slopes

Twinkling frost wiped off the glass

Hoping to see a reindeer pass


Flying low and collecting dreams

Riding over and down moonbeams

A flash of red and a twinkling bell

Starry skies of this Noel

Softly from the fire place

Dust and soot wiped off his face

A bag of treasures upon his back

Amazing marvels in his sack

Sparkling packages left this night

Await the children wrapped up tight

Golden ribbons surround the gifts

As up the chimney again he lifts

Off once more on his moonlit way

Reindeers breath before his sleigh

Chimney tops and snowy roofs

The muffled sound of many hoofs


Stillness floats around the room

Sparkling joys play their tune

Ready for children’s happy eyes

Fill their hearts with such surprise

The stars that fade in morning rays

Begins the fun of Christmas days


4th December 2012

19th June 2012

New Prints

I have just begun to cut my next print, i have had this design in my sketch book for a few months now. It is at times strange to be working on a wintery print in summer. 

1st June 2012





There on the front most part of your face

You’ll find a protrudence to cause a disgrace

From far up your nose there begins to twitch

A ghastly, horrid and blasted itch.

You’ll know at this point its going to blow

As from up your nose things start to flow


What shall I do?

What can be done?

Oh help me, please 

It’s going to run.


A runny stream begins to drip

Slowly down on it’s slimy trip

With one almighty booming sneeze

Everyone’s hair moves in the breeze.

A spray of green and slimy stuff

Fills the room in a great big puff.


What shall I do?

What can be done?

Oh help me, please 

It’s going to run


You stuff up a finger to stop the fizzle,

You grip on tight to your wretched schnozzle,

You wait for the outburst, the minutes tick by,

You hold your breath, you really try.

Then all of a sudden in a terrible spurt

You cover the back of your brother’s shirt




What shall I do?

What can be done?

Oh help me, please 

It’s going to run.



You purchase an enormous crocodile clip

Hoping to halt the annoying drip.

It pinches your nose with the hold of a vice

Your nose turns blue; is it worth the price?

But yet again the plan has a flaw,

When down your throat green bogies pour

You cough and splutter and start to spit

Making you look like your having a fit.


What shall I do?

What can be done?

Oh help me, please 

It’s going to run.


A doctor suggests you fit a tap

To block up the hole, to fill the gap.

Another sticks needles all over your nose

And cleans out each nostril with a tiny hose.

None of them help the problems go

Taps and needles can’t stop the flow.


What shall I do?

What can be done?

Oh help me, please 

It’s going to run.






Blowing and wiping with all of your might

All through the morning and into the night,

Leaving behind a trail of green goo

Covering your face right down to your shoe.

The backs of your sleeves are a terrible state

You have to buy tissues in by the crate,

Lumpy and runny and horribly thick

If you run out of glue you can use it to stick!


What shall I do?

What can be done?

Oh help me, please 

It’s going to run.


When all of a sudden you find you can breathe

The sniffles have left you, they decided to leave.

You wander around giving things a great sniff

You really don’t care, whatever the whiff.

But the after effects of all your sneezes

Is the rest of your family all have diseases.

Your dad’s nose is red; your mum has the flu

Your brother is rushing upstairs to the loo!


What shall I do?

What can be done?

I’d better leave now

I’m going to run.






1st June 2012
