Creating images is the most wonderful of games . . . It is like swinging on a rope out into a river: a focus that engages me mentally, sensually, physically, spiritually. . . a meditation, a joy.  – J.C. Heywood’s artist statement.

Heywood concentrates primarily on printmaking using screenprint, etching, lithography, vectographs and digital prints. The gallery says this exhibition “showcases his exuberant and varied approaches to working with colour, composition, form and texture, in both prints and paintings.”

      Great phrase (life spills out). Thanks for the comment. I am sure there are prints, not sure about cards. The gallery Twitter is @CGalleries and their link is in the text, because it’s a long exhibition and they might have produced something. Also, the other galleries that represent him are on his website, under contacts. Or just email him. You’re right, cards would be excellent.
