After a slightly more expensive (but no less worth it) kitchen than hoped for there is sadly not much left from Grandpa’s small legacy, however I have just ordered the main ‘legacy gift’ to myself – a intaglio etching press to go in the (rapidly taking shape) Print Room. It will take 4-6 weeks for delivery but after then, I’ll be back in business, 15 years after finishing at University, etching my way through life.

(I’ll need to get a small brass plaque I think, to affix to the press, in memory of my Grannie and Grandpa Shepherd…)
