Description

2020/21

I have been attending the fabulous Red Hot Press Foundation in Printmaking course. ...Improving my lino printing skills and learning new printmaking techniques.

I've been printing onto different papers and using many different intaglio and relief printing methods.All very challenging and exciting

Unfortunately, the course had to come to an abrupt and early finish with the national lockdown and many of my designs are still works in progress

As usual, my subject matter has been very varied., but always wildlife is a strong element and the beautiful landscape of the Island.

Hopefully I will be able to finish many more prints soon.....and have plenty ready in time for Open Studios 2021


About

I draw and paint using waterbased materials, charcoal and pastel. I like to experiment...and to work on a large scale. My subject matter is very varied. This always keeps me interested and excited whenever I start a new piece of work.

I enjoy watching water-based paints and inks react with water...so I use lots of it ...I can sit back and let the materials do the work for me. I often draw into the paint with pencils while it is wet.

I do lino printing and I"m working on using handprinted tissue papers for collage.

I like to paint birds, landscapes and flowers.

This year, I am concentrating on developing my printmaking techniques. And creating some mixed media pieces.
