I’m a printmaker although I also take photographs, paint a little and make mixed media pieces. I sell only original work – no reproductions. My prints and other work are for sale here on Etsy. I also have another Etsy shop where I sell reproductions of various vintage maps, posters and of Japanese woodblock prints.
I have no formal training in art, although I’ve done several short painting courses and I regularly attend a print workshop at a local college where I get great support and encouragement from the tutor and the other students. Some of us have recently got together to find ways to exhibit and promote our work. We don’t have a web page yet, but you can find us on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/WPrintCreatives
I started taking photographs at university in the 1960s and have continued ever since. Digital technology freed me from the wet darkroom and I began experimenting with digital manipulation of photos and photo collage. From there I moved on to traditional ‘hand pulled’ printmaking such as collagraph, monoprint and drypoint. I’ve just invested in a UV Exposure unit for photopolymer etching and I’m looking forward to experimenting further.
I sell smaller pieces on-line via my Etsy shop, including both finished pieces and sketches and studies for larger prints.You can also find me on Twitter and Instagram.
