This work has developed from my interest in the techniques and processes of printmaking. The materiality and tools of the print studio play an important role in my work. Metal plates, lino and woodblock are surfaces typically used in printing. For these works, I have applied certain print techniques to used plates, which then retain the incidental traces of the materials, from the bitumen to the inking and wiping of plates. These surfaces are not intended to be printed from, instead, they exist as completed works in their own right.
