About The Artwork

Printmaking: Monotype on Cardboard, Paper and Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric). Size: 15 H x 22 W x 0.1 in " Blue Sails at Dawn " is one of a series of four using collagraph monoprint techniques. These works are printed on high quality Somerset paper. Monoprinting produces a unique print while allowing the artist to experiment with form, texture and colour variations. The variety of printing techniques, especially monotype, can create a sensuous, velvety quality , differing from conventional painting. I enjoyed working in this medium and exploring composition and subtle colour differences , sometimes masking out areas with Chine collé (adhering thin pieces of Japanese paper onto print). In "Blue Sails at Dawn " I masked out areas which were bigger than the shapes on the plate, before making the first print , this allowed the original paper colour to show through . I like the way it adds a "bleeding edge" quality to the work. I made a number of prints, each time moving the image to create a layered effect ( see bobbing boats, top left). This differs from the other work as the printed surface is more translucent. Sailing boats, mono print, collagraph, layers, movement, Somerset paper, translucent

Please visit me on : I am an art teacher by profession and enjoy the constant challenges of "problem solving" and frustration that goes with art. Teaching art has encouraged me to experiment with new approaches and draw from a history of art knowledge. My paintings seek to convey a range of human feelings from community to alienation, sometimes with a religious, mythological or fantasy theme. While teaching children with physical disabilities I explored themes on attitudes towards disability, illness and censorship. The foundation of my work is drawing, often evolving into mixed media. My painting style ranges from traditional oil and watercolour painting to experimental work in a wide range of materials including computer-based art, bas-relief and ceramics. Alongside painting I have made clay sculptures including torsos and shoes. I use my life drawings as a starting point when making clay torsos and try to capture something of the person in this work.
