I’ve always been occupied by art in some form, I graduated from university in 2012 with a degree in computer animation and have been working professionally as an animator since 2015. With all this time spent working on a computer, I found myself in need of an artistic pursuit away from the screen. Along came lino printing, a technique I hadn’t explored since college. Due to its relative low bar for entry I decided to experiment and from 2019 became hooked on the process. With COVID keeping us indoors for much of 2020 I found it to be an essential escape, a way of materialising memories of places I could no longer visit, and keeping those creative juices flowing when inspiration was hard to come by.
The printmaking process is now a bigger part of my life than ever before as I continue to forge a space for myself to work and experiment with new techniques and processes.
