A year of print

This year I am spending a lot of my time developing my new passion for printmaking. I have been studying collagraph printmaking - a process which involves creating printing plates, inking and wiping them and then printing them by hand using a printing press. This is an incredibly exciting and creative process, which gives me exactly the scope for experimentation that I most enjoy when creating work. 

There is something incredibly satisfying about making, testing and refining printing plates and a certain sense of jeopardy when pulling initial prints! I love working in a space where there is only a certain amount that I can control alongside the freedom to work with what happens.
