I’ve been having fun painting a 3 foot tall otter for Moor Otters.
My design is based on the geological map of the area around Dartmoor, really just an excuse to spend hours mixing lovely colours. His head may look like he’s got sunburn, but really he’s painted the colour for granite.
Around 100 otters will be roaming around Dartmoor and the surrounding area later in the year.
Along with Jilly Morris and Ruth Piper, I am currently organising an exhibition of drawing and print at Centrespace Gallery. I will be exhibiting three of my ‘Geological Series’ screen prints, one of which has made its way onto the poster…

Rather than dictating exactly which colours will appear on a print, I am letting the colours decide for themselves. For my circle prints I am mixing inks to match colours from the key of a geological map, and then seeing what colours are created when the inks are overprinted. A little bit scary, but very rewarding…
Just a few of the steps involved in printing a 12 colour screenprint.

An article about my work in the online version of The Bristol Magazine:
A Platform for Local Art
There is never a dull moment at Bristol Temple Meads. A vibrant hub of activity for commuters heading to and from the city to begin their working day, excited adventurers heaving their backpacks on their shoulders and bidding farewell to Bristol, and don’t even get me started on the colourful array of artwork lining the platforms.
Local artist Emily Ketteringham is a screen printing artist and printmaker with a passion for Bristol’s quirks and colourful contours.

One of my screenprints inspired by the 1:25 000 scale OS maps will be getting its first outing at ‘Pay & Display’ at Centrespace from 4th to 9th March. With work by 50 artist on show, the exhibition will be well worth a visit.
I am really surprised and pleased that Jo Love, the Acting MA Printmaking Pathway Leader at Camberwell College of Art, UAL, has chosen my print ‘Minor fold with gentle plunge’ for the prize of ‘Most Original Piece’ at the Space to Place exhibition. A real confidence boost!
From 29 September – 5 October 2015 Space to Place at the Embassy Tea Gallery, SE1 0PB: Group exhibition exploring the concept of place.
We’ve taken our MA Print show to London, and very good it looks too.
