If I am not working on a new project, I am thinking about many new project ideas. Here you can view my latest projects as they evolve or come to term...
Flying Duck Orchid Etching and Chine collé
Recently I attended a workshop with the prodigious Kim Herringe to try my hand at etching on aluminium plates. Like all printmaking it is a process driven art form. Unlike linocut, etching allowed me to create different details and a different result. However etching requires a lot more space and specialist equipment, namely an etching press, that I do not have easy access to. Overall, I am still a linocut girl, but I now have the knowledge to bring this process into a project if it will give me the results I am looking for. Hope you like the effect of my flying duck orchid, which I added some 100 year old Japanese rice paper from a manuscript to when printing, a process called Chine collé.
