Printmaking
315 High Street, Cottenham

Profile

I have practiced printmaking for a decade and as an artist really enjoy the process which can be very exacting and challenging. As a printmaker, my creativity is limitless, as the differing processes and techniques can be combined, which provides an endless artistic journey, practising an art form that constantly inspires. My prefered printmaking techniques are mono-printing, silkscreen and linocuts. I gained a certificate in Printmaking from the Curwen Study Centre in Linton in 2015.

I'm inspired by form, line, colour and texture, and my prints are informed by a fascination with nature, both home and abroad. My recents print projects have been inspired by an abiding interest in textiles, which comes from my childhood legacy left to me by my mother. I spent many hours in my her sewing room, where I was taught to sew and knit at the age of five. I have begun to incorporate stitch into my printmaking processes; the texture and tactility of stitch, in all forms, creates beautiful, unexpected. Cotton is now my prefered drawing medium to create line and texture in my prints, and paper is the perfect medium for capturing the beauty of the mark.

My current work is an exploration of childhood memories, in which stitch played an important healing process during a traumatic period. Stitch for me is a metaphor for growth and renewal. One stitch, leading onto many, was the starting point to a healing and mending of both mind and body
