I am a printer, and have been printing since my early twenties. In 1980 /81 I trained in fabric design and have printed in some form since then.
Fabric printing was my first love and I only started printing on paper in 2003 when I attended a MacGregor Summer school. This was followed up when I moved to Armidale and had access to a press through NERAM Packsaddle classes with Jonathon Larsen. I use screen printing, lino block printing, etching and mono type printing. Colour is a number one motivation for any work and layering of colour, pattern and image is how the works are created.
I always plan what I’m going to print but follow the process intuitively which sometimes means it turns out completely differently, and I love the flexibility of this approach.
