I have developed a love of printmaking, doing my mark making and all that entails, such as: painting, drawing, scratching, scraping, incising, rolling, and wiping ink on and off the plates. I love the element of surprise and delight I get in seeing my image realised, after it has been hand rolled through the printing press.

Depending on the process used, my print work type can be categorised, as that of a monotype or monoprint or drypoint (intaglio). Generally, I use a plate of aluminium or plexiplate to create my images on. I usually work with Charbonnel intaglio etching ink, as I enjoy working with the lusciousness of the oil ink, meanwhile, steering clear of toxic mediums, like turpentine.

I like to hand colour ‘ghost prints’, which are usually a faded second impression of the initial first print (usually a monotype or monoprint) that I have put through the printing press. On these works, I tend to use Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and/or Caran D’Ache Artists’ Colours Neocolor11, Aquarelle as mediums to draw, creating a totally unique work, with reference to the original print work coming through.

I mostly work and create on my own, in my home studio space. However, there is something great to be said about the wonderful friendships formed and skills learned by working with other printmakers in a collaborative manner, on individual or shared projects, workshops, in a shared studio space.
