I spent many years learning the “rules” about composition, colour & technique and I thank my lucky stars I did.
I like to experiment and explore, using that knowledge,trying to discover new things.
I have been drawn to techniques in printmaking, especially collagraphs, monoprints & embossing.
I wish to achieve a sense of exploration in my printmaking,using simple graphic elements as drawing,rubbing,scratching,smudging, etching & embossing, working in a very intuitive way not knowing what the outcome may be. The process involves searching a balance between spontaneous & deliberate.
Recently my explorations have taken a sculptural approach with a combination of paper Clay & prints…..assemblages.
Once a month a group of like minded artists have been working together in the studio in Stuart Town with printmaker, Tim Winters
Not only have we learned new techniques but also been able to further develop our own personal explorations & share knowledge & ideas.
