York Open Studios Artist's Print for Comic Relief

York Open Studios Artist Creates Red Nose Day Prints

Jane Duke, printmaker, artist and one of the committee members of the renowned York Open Studios, has created a bespoke ‘Red Nose’ themed print to celebrate and raise funds for this Friday’s charity extravaganza.   Jane, who makes prints from her Stoneflower Studio in York, wanted to contribute to one of the nation’s favourite charities, and using her talents seemed the best way to do it.  

Jane says: “I have been a supporter of Red Nose Day since its inception, and have seen the good work this charity does around the world.  'Noses on Kittens' is the fourth linoprint I've made for a Red Nose Day to raise funds for Comic Relief.  Over the previous three Red Nose Days buyers have helped me raise over £1,600.  In this year's print there are not one but four red noses being worn by a row of kittens in an 18 x 10 cm image.  The limited edition of 50 prints are £15 each, including free UK delivery.  Every penny of that £15 will go to Comic Relief.”
