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 abstraction, texture and the power of colour. 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 Assemblage, a work of art made by grouping found or unrelated objects'
This series of prints was inspired by memories of my mothers sewing room, particularly her dressmaking skills. As an avid collector of all things textile, I've explored the textures of collected fabrics using mono-printing and then embellished and texturised them further using buttons, thread, old sewing patterns, cut paper and thread.
