PRINTMAKER PROFILE

ARTIST STATEMENT

I first fell in love with Printmaking about 10 years ago when I started attending a weekly course outside of University. I really enjoyed how therapeutic it was and so continued to develop my skills further. I love how much texture you can get from different printing techniques and the unpredictable nature of the process that you can never fully control.

Since moving back to Birmingham I have been part of the Birmingham Printmakers taking inspiration from nature, wildlife and the world around me. I now also run regular printmaking classes of my own to share this wonderful art form. My main printing techniques are Collagraph, Lino-cuts & Wood-cuts. I am also a self-employed photographer and film maker, allowing me to capture a moment in time and later use my images for printing inspiration.
