I have practiced printmaking for a decade and as an artist really enjoy the process which can be very exacting and challenging. As a printmaker, my creativity is limitless. Printmaking processes and techniques can be combined, which provides an endless artistic journey, practising an art form that constantly inspires. My preferred printmaking techniques are mono-printing, silkscreen and linocuts. I gained a certificate in Printmaking from the Curwen Study Centre in Linton in 2015.
I'm inspired by form, line, colour and texture, and my prints are informed by a fascination with nature, both home and abroad. My recent print projects have been inspired by an abiding interest in textiles, which comes from my childhood legacy left to me by my mother. I spent many hours in her sewing room, where I was taught to sew and knit at the age of five. I have begun to incorporate stitch into my printmaking processes; the texture and form of stitch, both hand and machine, creates beautiful, unexpected marks. Cotton is now my prefered drawing medium to create line and texture in my prints, and paper is the perfect medium for capturing the beauty of the mark.
My current work is the Bubble Series an exploration of living 'in a bubble' the phrase synonymous with the Coronavirus pandemic. An invisible, devastating enemy caused a global shift in how we lived our lives in 2020, and beyond.
