I was delighted to be invited to feature in Edition Four of the independent publication We Are Makers.
The We Are Makers Book is a celebration of artists and craftspeople from across the globe. In this Edition you can find interviews with artists from the USA, Australia, and Scotland amongst many other locations.
My interview focuses on where and how I work, what I make and future plans. The interview is accompanied by photographs taken by Ruth Kelly from Native Ivy.
It is always a delight to be asked to feature in publications, especially one so thoughtfully compiled as this.
You can get hold of Edition Four via the We Are Makers website or from a number if independent retailers.
Here is a little excerpt from the interview:
I started printmaking many years ago, but it was in 2018, after the birth of my first son, when creating took precedence and I began developing my practice more cohesively and with the intention of building a sustainable career. My work takes a variety of forms; original works, commissions and homewares are my staples. Printmaking is at the core of my process. I favour, primarily, monoprinting or monotype and the painterly qualities that can be achieved. I combine monoprinted layers with painting, and occasionally elements of etching or lino printing. Since 2019 my practice has focused, almost exclusively, on working directly with plant material. The endless possibilities presented by this form of printmaking was a light-bulb moment. It aligned my interests and passions in a way that I felt helped me to create work authentically, deepened my connection to the world around me and helped me visually express some of the ways in which I was experiencing the world around me
