Here is a selection of my latest prints which I have been creating during January/February lockdown 2021! Using a different technique of creating paper cut-outs to mask the design the results are quite different from my previous botanical prints. And the good news is they are really great fun to create. After years spent working on the precise demands of precious metal jewellery making and learning Adobe Creative Suite software, its like a blessed relief creating something which is actually the best fun ever! When I was a member of Glasgow Print Studio I created a series of collagraph prints, still technically demanding, which I loved creating too, but of course a printing press/workshop is required for this process. Printing with a gelatin plate can be done at home, without a press and is generally a fairly quick, spontaneous process. Any twirly bits are added later by hand. Still haven't unwrapped by extra large gelli plate which will allow me to work on a much larger scale. Waiting for better weather so that I can relocate to my studio in the garden! Some of these prints are sold, others have just been uploaded to my etsy shop.
