A TALENTED artist from Beer will be exhibiting her hand-made prints in the 'Bomb Shelter' as part of Devon Open Studios.

Printmaker Emma Molony, 31, will be displaying her unique prints for a two-week period in the village starting from Monday.

Emma, who started printmaking when she lived in Venice, has had a very successful career and as well as designing and creating her own work, she is also a director of Exeter-based Double Elephant Print Company.

This year she featured in the Channel Four programme, 'Kirstie's Homemade Home', and the wallpaper she created for the show will be on sale at the exhibition.

Emma, who now lives near Exeter, said: "I'm really looking forward to being in Beer. The Bomb Shelter is very interesting and the space is brilliant."

The gifted artist will have 25 different styles of work on sale at the exhibition, most of which focus on wolves-Emma' main inspiration.

She added: "A lot of my work is based on fairytales and short storie-, a few are based on Beer and others in Venice.

"There will be a range of my work on display such as wallpaper, etching and screen prints."

Emma has once before exhibited in Beer and last year in Seaton as part of Devon Open Studios.

She said: "It's great that people can come and see the artwork and I will get the chance to speak to other artists who visit."

The exhibition runs until Sunday, September 20 and prices range from �5 for a wooden print up to �200 for a larger print.

Everything on display is hand-made by Emma, except the rolls of wallpaper designed for 'Kirstie's Homemade Home'.

Mike Green, curator of the Bomb Shelter, said: "The arts are often neglected as an important part of the economy and tourism and it is great to be in a position to help the arts and in particular a local girl who is so talented."
