Printmaking  - etching and dry point engraving


I have been printmaking for 7 years now, since taking a print course at the WSA Art School, where I still meet up with fellow-printmakers in the Print Room on a weekly basis. The thrill of pulling a print from the press and seeing how it has turned out keeps me hooked on printmaking. So often the results are unexpected!

As well as experimenting with many forms of printmaking–etching, drypoint, collagraph–I also enjoy pastel work, watercolours and bookmaking. I am inspired by natural objects, rustic and vintage things, and the play of light on them.
