    About me

    The images of childhood form my visual language and the topics discussed have grown and changed over the years, but it is always from the perspective of a woman and mother, often feminist in nature, that I begin. Currently the idea of recognising how difficult simply navigating a life path can be, drawing on Jung's writings and following this questioning thread back through time is being investigated. Steel plate, colour inked etchings are produced by applying all of the coloured inks in one go: this is a time consuming process which means bigger plates can take a whole day to produce just one print. Inks move and merge during the wiping down process which means no two prints are exactly the same, editions are limited and Fabriano printing paper is used. I enjoy challenges and will embrace any projects that come my way.
