I took up printmaking after I retired. I have a Certificate in Printmaking and have recently completed 2 years of Complete Printmaker course at Hotbed Press, Salford.
I am influenced by my surroundings, particular landscape and I try to represent the feelings the landscape evokes using various printmaking techniques. My interest is in patterns and marks on the land rather than the terrain itself. I have been experimenting with combining techniques and recently my work has become more abstract. I hope to develop more in this direction.
I work a lot from home where I have a small press but I really enjoy working at Hotbed with other printmakers. Critical friends are important!
