Printmaking

I have used a range of techniques in printmaking, including lino prints, wood engraving, woodcut, silk screen printing and etching. 

There is something very satisfying about the processes involved in printmaking and the need to surrender control, allowing for a wonderful element of surprise. Things certainly do not always go to plan, but that's part of the appeal.

More recently, I have experimented with mixing dry point etching with watercolour, or ink. I have been exploring the contrast between geometric form, some of which takes on a resemblance of an industrial landscape, others simply exploring composition with simple shapes. I then contrast the definite lines of the shapes with expressive mark making, allowing the medium to do as it pleases and being open to experimentation and play. I am interested in surrendering the pressure of perfectionism and expectation, enabling the thrill of creating in the moment.

If you would like to know more about any of these prints, or would like to purchase one, please contact me at:
