Technique: inkjet transfer, chine colle and my special offset technique with perforations (unique print) on Hahnemuhle paper
Size : 66 x 110 cm
Connected to the ideas found in the visual language of ancient Egypt - it was inspired by the image of the falcon from that era. This piece is concerned with the idea of a connection between a spirit going to the other world or the afterlife and the 'earth bound individual' left wondering about the meaning of it all.
Technique: collagraph( ‘a la poupee’) with inkjet chine colle, on Hahnemuhle paper with minimal hand colouring. artists/ proof
Size: 65 x 94 cm
I reworked this collagraph plate using acrylic resist etch media as I had never been entirely happy with it as it was. It took many hours ink it up in the three colors and then to wipe it. I was relieved when I removed the blankets to see that it had printed successfully. It is concerned with our relationship to animals originally inspired by my stay in Cumbria while on an artists residency. I was staying in the heart of the countryside surrounded by lovely green fields with mainly only the sheep and cattle as companions.

This work was a bit of an adventure for me and I even had to re-do one of the elements as I wasn't quite happy with it. Its somewhat related to another work I did which was concerning our planet the earth - and even though it is all green it's subject concerns the 'Polar Ice Melt' and the plight of the bears.
In this case, which is to do with the preservation of the imagination ........something I hold very dear. The earth woman (the main figurative element on the right) with her orb representing the ideal of humane values.......... watches the march of the spiderlings as they exit the house of the Russian fable. The empty chair inviting the audience to participate in this world of stories within stories.
Waterbased monopint with chine colle trace monotype on gampi paper.
I made this into a pigment based archival print for an exhibition organized by an organization called Electrografia in budapest, Hungary.
Seer one of the prints from the series "Traces in The Wood" there are about 20 of these. All were made from trace monotypes and wood rolled up with a layer of translucent color. These were then layered in Photoshop. Some of the prints I later added intaglio emboss elements to.
